Dark Shadows

Every Family Has Its Demons


Dark Shadows
The latest Burton/Depp/Bonham-Carter collaboration is a revamp of a popular American TV series from the 60s. Our hero was a dashing young playboy who jilted the wrong woman. She turned out to be a witch, and buried him for 200 years, after first turning him into a vampire. When some builders accidentally unearth him in 1972, he returns to his family home where his dysfunctional descendants are all undergoing therapy. When you add this bloodsucker-out-of-water to the mix, anything can happen ...

113 minutes.
No persons under 13 (Sex, Violence).
