Excerpt: Dark Shadows is een film waar je echt even zin in moet hebben. Voor een komische vampierenfilm moet deze film het hebben van net even te weinig goede grappen en vondsten. Johnny Depp heb ik ook wel eens sterker gezien.
Excerpt: Ik hou van Johnny Depp als acteur, en vond de films samen met Tim Burton altijd erg geslaagd zoals Edward Scissorhands en Alice in Wonderland. Maar ik weet niet zo goed wat ik met deze film aanmoet, er zaten sommige mooie special effests in en wat leuke grapjes, maar verder vond ik het slecht.

Excerpt: Tim Burton's Dark Shadows is a good-looking mess.

Excerpt: While I appreciated the long, storied career that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have had - after Dark Shadows, I think it's time to give that relationship a rest. From history, I knew this would be a somewhat dark comedy full of strange and wondrous characters (and I wasn't disappointed) but outside of...
Summary: Dark Shadows Predicably its a Tim Burton and Johnny Depp mash up, much like 'Edward Scisorhands' and a kin to 'Interview with a Vampire'. It is, of course a wonderfully delightful piece of film making, however if you didnt enjoy 'Corpes Bride' then it may not be your cup of tea.
