    Dark Shadows—movie review

    It makes sense that for Johnny Depp and director Tim Burton to get in on the current vampire craze, they’d have to approach it with a sense of humor. I doubt if many young viewers know that they’ve based their new film on a forty-year-old daytime TV drama, and it scarcely matters. Dark S...

    Burton and Depp's 'Dark Shadows': Review Round-Up

    Warner Bros.' trailer for Tim Burton's eighth collaboration with Johnny Depp, "Dark Shadows," had me salivating for a witty 70s romp at the movies. And the movie looks and sounds great, with a witty Danny Elfman 70s score and a strong cast. So why is the film such an enervating disappointment?

    VIDEO ESSAY: Burton versus Bava

    Just as people ultimately judge a book by its cover, many of us are quick to judge a film by its trailer. When I was asked to set my sights on Tim Burton's upcoming "Dark Shadows," a movie based on the cult TV show of the late 1960s, as my next entry point for Criterion Consideration, I immediately...

    Review: 'Dark Shadows' Is Another Lazy, Incoherent Disappointment From Tim Burton

    “Dark Shadows” is not the worst movie that Tim Burton has ever made, but that’s only because there’s nothing worse than “Alice in Wonderland.” A desperate jumble of ideas in search of deeper substance, much less focus, Burton’s latest collaboration with actor Johnny Depp is the latest, and perhaps g...

    The Vampire Who Came To Dinner: Johnny Depp and Tim Burton Do Dark Shadows

    I’m a big fan of Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, and vampires in general, so Dark Shadows is a film with my name on it. But you don’t need that perfect storm of tastes to fall for this funny pop confection. You don’t even have to be familiar with the 60’s afternoon soap opera...

    New 'Dark Shadows' Images Show Off Alice Cooper's Cameo & More

    While the multiplex explodes this weekend with superheroes emerging out of every cinematic orifice, next week the blockbuster movie leading the pack will be quite a different beast altogether. A vampire and a witch will battle it out in the 1970s in the high concept fantasy/horror/comedy hybrid "Dar...

    Look Into My Eyes: 9 Clips From Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows' With Johnny Depp & Eva Green

    We've had an inkling thus far that "Dark Shadows" would be a return to form for both Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, whose batting average over their last few films -- "Alice In Wonderland," "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," "Charlie and the Chocola...

    'Dark Shadows' Soundtrack Features Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, The Carpenters, T-Rex & More

    Composer Danny Elfman has written the score to Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows," starring Johnny Depp, natch. It probably sounds a little like the music featured here (though you can actually hear it here). However, what's likely a bit more interesting than the original score,...
