Grandma, son and grandson all really enjoyed this movie! Tongue-in-cheek funny, good storyline, not too dark like most Tim Burton movies tend to be, and great cast and just a fun time overall!

5 of us attended the movie together last night, and we all loved it!
Depp and Burton haven't lost their touch one bit! Bravo !
I intend to go see this one again.
Acting was superb, the cinematography was eye popping good, over all it was well worth paying full price to go see.

Every Dark Shadows Fan will wanna go see this film, just because. The best scenes are in the beginning while they are telling the back story, but that was true with the original series too... Depp gives a cutsie flair to his interpritation of Frids Barnabus Collins, but it somehow works for this film.
But one thing this film did do is make this Dark Shadows fan hungry for is a really GREAT remake of the TV series to feed us die hard Barnabus Fans weekly at home!!!!

Dark Shadows is a dramatic comedy that holds the audience's attention throughout the entire movie. Johnny Depp is masterful in portraying both the emotional angst of his character and the comedic confusion of a "man" out of his era. The rest of the cast are just as talented and each character has his or her own unique quirks and personality. This is definitely a movie worth the price of admission.

This one definitely ranks up there with Burton's best. Call it "Edward Scissorhands" for a new generation. Who'd have imagined anyone could breathe new life (or death) into that old "Dark Shadows" afternoon soap opera? Fun, macabre, and downright charming, this movie's a solid feature that camps today's "cookie cutter" image of vampirism and then some. If you're looking for an entertaining film well worth its ticket price, this is it. You won't be disappointed.
