  • The pleasures of Dark Shadows are frustratingly hit-and-miss. In the end, it all collapses into a spectacularly gorgeous heap. show more

  • Amusing, in fits and spurts, and sure to make tons of money, but terribly familiar and fatigued. show more

  • Pinpointing the era - lovingly - is very much what Dark Shadows' has on its mind. While there's a tangle of romance and vengeance and all sorts of family matters to deal with, Burton's film is really about hippies in bell-bottoms, stoned out in their VW micro-buses. show more

    As a fan or the original soap who has seen every episode of same and also had seen both previous movies. I must say this was surprisingly enjoyable.I say surpsingly because I must say that I went into it with a skeptical chip on my shoulder.And I want to add Rest In Peace Jonathan Frid.

    The sporadic moments of humor just aren\'t enough to make this even a decent viewing. In short: a nonsensical, terrible film.
