Johnny Depp has brought his favorite childhood TV show, "Dark Shadows," to the big screen. The actor and director Tim Burton colloborated on revamping the 1960s series about a man struck down with a vampire curse.
Depp plays 18th century vampire Barnabas Collins who wakes up in 1972 after being entombed for 200 years. He finds his ancestral home in a state of decay and his family plagued with many problems. Meanwhile, he must contend with the vengeful witch who turned him into a vampire in the first place.
But the film doesn't take itself too seriously. The trailer is a bit campy, and it's amusing to watch vampire Depp navigate the 70s technology he didn't have in his former life.
