Dark Shadows Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review

Synopsis: From the wonderfully warped imagination of Tim Burton comes the story of Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp), a dashing aristocrat who is turned into a vampire by a jilted lover and entombed for two centuries. Emerging from his coffin into the world of 1972, he returns to his once-majestic home, only to the few dysfunctional descendants of the Collins family who remain. Determined to return his family name to its former glory, Barnabas is thwarted at every turn by his former lover - the seductive witch Angelique (Eva Green) - in this wildly imaginative" (Sam Hallenbeck, NBC-TV adventure).

Review: We're of the firm belief that anything Tim Burton touches is pure gold.  Anything from Beetlejuice to Batman...Mars Attacks to Sweeney Todd...he cannot go wrong.  The man is an absolute much so that he can take an old soap opera and make a wildly entertaining and quirkly film.   Johnny Depp helms the cast as Barnabus, a vampire that was buried alive for hundreds of years by a jealous witch, only to awaken and find that the Collins family has fallen from grace. Barnabus must then take on Angelique the witch to secure the future of his family and their legacy.  Tim Burton, along with the musical stylings of the great Danny Elfman, can manage to make anything into a golden egg.  Dark Shadows not only delights.  The movie has comedy, drama, romance, is truly a dark comedy.
