I actually enjoyed this movie! I'm old enough to remember the orginal and I thought Burton did a great job with this story. Depp, Bothem-Carter, and Burton all had fun! Grab a bag of popcorn and a drink and enjoy the 2 hours.

Have you noticed that most people who commented liked the movie, I never go by what critiques say but rather by what the people say, the people are unpaid and uncencored unlike these ****ters that only care about how much they'll get payed.
I liked this movie not my favorite but it surely wasnt one of the worst, or even in the catagory bad.
Thats my oppinion.

I agree, some of these "bad" movies should be on the good category and vise-verse, these "critics" are basing their critique on whomever paid them the more $$$ its all about $$$, typical Hollywood

I loved Dark Shadows (the TV show) and was very excited to see the movie. It was kind of goofy and cheesy, nothing like the show; but it was good and it was funny. Maybe not a "best' of the year, but certainly not a "worst".

It would be one thing if Tim Burton and Johnny Depp merely collaborated yet again on a bad film; it would be another thing if Depp and Burton collaborated on a big-screen do-over of a 50-year-old supernatural soap opera TV show that no one wanted to see on the big screen. But the worst thing about "Dark Shadows" is that Depp and Burton did a bad job of bringing back a TV show no one was missing, with Depp pancaked with white face makeup and Burton jumping from set to set while ignoring anything like a plot or characters. "Dark Shadows" came and went from theaters so fast you'd think someone staked it through the heart. Now, to surgically separate Depp and Burton before they kill again ...
