I can't compare this film to the old TV series, but I thought it was a hoot. It has all the elements of a "horror" movie and all the tongue-in-cheek humor that made me laugh - a lot. The Burton-Depp-Elfman team has done well, not their best, but good enough to say " Go see it".

While we love just about anything Johnny Depp does... this movie was a waste of his considerable talents. On a scale of 1 - 10 we gave it a 3.5 (3 for me and 4 from my spouse). It was too disjointed and choppy, and while there were a few humorous moments, it was basically silly and sophomoric. The best thing we can say is we are glad the original Barnabas Collins, Jonathan Frid, did not live to see the release of this movie, having passed away in April 2012. Without giving away any "spoilers", having Angelique give us "a summary" of all her evil-doings over the last 200 years... in the last few minutes of the film (trying to tie all the loose-ends together) was like wading thru War & Peace and getting to the last page of the book to find out "one person was behind it all".

I was a fan of the original series. The trailer looked less than appealing, but when my mother (also a fan) said she wanted to see it, I said okay. This was just not a well thought out movie. Johnny Depp was solid, and Michelle Pfeiffer was okay, but most of the cast was not strong. The plot and much of the writing was wretched. The last 45 minutes was horrible. There were a few laughs early on, but not enough to save it. My teenage daughter, who is doubtless in the center of the target demographic, said "Well, I think that is the worst movie I have EVER seen." I said "You never saw 'Buster and Billie.'"
