Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows could either be a glorious return to form or an even deeper retreat into his hermetically sealed safety zone. I haven’t been a fan of much of his recent work, but sometimes people needs to crank out a few duds before they remember why they loved making films in the first place.
So while the emerging imagery of Depp as Collins looks pretty cool, it also looks like standard Burton. Aesthetically, we know that’s what this movie will be. Let’s just hope the storytelling portion of his skill set is reinvigorated.
“The story focuses on Barnabas Collins (Depp), who was transformed into a vampire by a jilted lover (Eva Green’s witch Angelique) way back in the 1700s and buried. He’s just been dug up, and attempts to reintegrate with his descendants, led by Michelle Pfeiffer’s Elizabeth and Jonny Lee Miller’s Roger – despite the fact that Angelique is still around and still not in a forgiving mood.”
The retelling of the classic teleplay arrives in theaters May 11, 2012.
