clips and trailers: Dark Shadows (2012)2 Comments
I did have this in my Upcoming Horror Films feature however since the first trailer came out, it has become apparent that Tim Burton is taking it in a different direction. Which is fine by me, except that I can’t really put it in the horror category any more. So, I thought I’d give a whole post to itself.
Tim Burton’s big screen take on the late ’60s cult classic US TV series of the same name. I’m not familiar with it myself but it was apparently a supernatural gothic soap opera, 1,225 episodes were broadcast by ABC in the 5 years of it’s original run.
I’m going to reserve judgement on this. Let’s just see what Burton and Depp have come up with this time.
