Dark Shadows..

This is one movie in theaters right now I really want to see.
Johnny Depp as a quirky vampire yes please.
Burton film even better.
There is just something I love so much about the way he directs.
Never having seeing the original 
but hearing it was a popular daytime soap opera from the 1960's
with vampires, witches , warlocks, and werewolves.


I had no idea such a show existed!
And will be watching the original.
I mean it's a vampire show from the 60's 

Burton's version being 
his reinterpretation of a favorite shows from his youth.
But of course with his twist to it.
I personally love how Depp and Carter are in most of Burton's films.
I think they both do amazing at each character they play.
And it makes it signature Burton.

The story line:
In 1782, Joshua and Naomi Collins sail from Liverpool, England to North America. Their son, Barnabas, grows up to be a wealthy playboy in
Collinsport, Maine and is the master of Collinwood Manor. He breaks the heart of a witch, Angelique Bouchard, who kills his parents, curses his family, including all his lovers (the last being Josette), leaping to their deaths from a nearby cliff and finally turns Barnabas into a vampire and buries him alive in a chained-coffin in the woods. 196 years later in 1972, Barnabas is accidentally freed from his coffin by a group of construction workers, sucks them dry of their blood and makes his way back to Collinwood Manor where he finds his once-magnificent mansion in ruin. The manor is currently occupied by Barnabas' dysfunctional descendants. Barnabas decides to restore his family name, but when Angelique discovers that he has escaped his shallow grave, she plots revenge and tries to win him back.

Although in interviews Depp promised his fans he wouldn't
stray to far off from the original.
You can't be mad at him he was just doing what he does best.
Making his character come to life.
Even if it is a bit disco and goofy. 
I really want to see it.
And I am really  interested now to watch the original show.

The movie is now playing at theaters.
Did you see it? Are you planning on going?
