'Dark Shadows' Trailer Is More Funny Than Creepy. But Will It Be Good?
Dark Shadows was a 1966-1971 soap opera that science fiction/horror fans could sink their teeth into: instead of characters who were doctors and lawyers, some of the dwellers of Collinsport, Maine, were vampires, witches, and zombies. The show had a brief second life in 1991, but its dedicated fans always wanted to know more about the Collins family and their pale distant cousin, Barnabas Collins, Now Tim Burton has turned the story of Dark Shadows into a movie. And from this trailer, below, it seems to be a comedy.
