If you're excited to see Dark Shadows, which I am, you'll definitely want to watch this cool featurette of the film, mingled with the history of vampires in film (and my readers know how much I love vampires and JD). Tim Burton seems to be returning to his quirky roots with this horror comedy (i.e. Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), which I'm loving - I've missed the "old" Burton. Anyway, take a look and enjoy!
A gothic-horror tale centering on the life of 200 year old vampire Barnabas Collins and his run-ins with various monsters, witches, werewolves and ghosts as master of Collinwood Manor in Collinsport, Maine.
Dark Shadows is directed by imaginative filmmaker Tim Burton, of films including Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd and Alice in Wonderland. He's directing from a script by author-turned-writer Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) based on the cult ABC TV series created by Dan Curtis. Warner Brothers is releasing this movie everywhere this summer, May 11, 2012.
