  • Excerpt: Somewhere in the sloping arc of Tim Burton’s career, what was once a sensibility slowly morphed into a brand. That distinctive gothic flair, freed from horror and animated by comedy in great films like Pee-wee’s Big Adventure and Beetlejuice , has not gone away, nor has his attraction to stories...

  • Excerpt: "Dark Shadows" is a dark comedy, although the jokes aren't as black as its gothic setting, a magnificent candlelit manor.

  • Excerpt: Tim Burton gör comeback i den svarta, gotiska skräckens värld med den här vampyrkomedin som inte når upp till samma nivå som regissörens äldre kultfilmer och är överfull av karaktärer och sidohistorier. Men det är kul, snyggt och välspelat - och vi slipper Johnny Depp i en lustig hatt.
