About Dark Shadows

An over-the-top gothic comedy based on a cult 1970s TV show. Johnny Depp takes time out from counting his Pirates Of The Caribbean doubloons to play the gentlemanly vampire Barnabas Collins. In the 17th Century, young Barnabas moves from Liverpool to America with his parents, where they build a mansion. He grows up to be a bit of a bounder and spurns the affections of Angelique Bouchard, a maid who also happens to be a witch. Enraged at his cruelty she curses him and buries him alive. Two hundred years later, he awakens as a vampire. He finds that his once magnificent home is in a state of disrepair and overrun with his fractious relatives including Elizabeth (Michelle Pfeiffer), Roger (Jonny Lee Miller) and Carolyn (Chloe Grace Moretz). Angelique returns to ruin him and he is inspired to restart the family business, despite being puzzled by modern life.
