The Scoop on Dark Shadows From Tim Burton, Helena Bonham-Carter and The Original Cast

More than 40 years before True Blood and Twilight made angst-ridden vampires the hot new thing, there was a wicked little afternoon soap called Dark Shadows. At its center was Barnabas Collins, a brooding bloodsucker played with equal parts torment and relish by Jonathan Frid, and if you were an offbeat kid in the late 1960s there's a good chance you raced home from school to watch it. Tim Burton, the acclaimed director, was one of those eager young fans. And now he's put his own spin on things. His movie version of Dark Shadows opens May 11 with a starry cast headed by Johnny Depp — yet another boyhood buff of the soap — as the reluctant, guilt-ridden and immortally sexy Barnabas.

Question: Thanks for your intelligent and frankly hilarious reviews! I especially love that you highlight lesser known but completely fantastic gems on networks like PBS! I'm thrilled the days of sub-par, toast-dry programming on PBS seem to be slowly going the way of the Titanic.

Obviously, I'm biased, but ... read more

Premise: Ghosts, witches and werewolves populated this creepy daytime serial about Maine's Collins family, which included Barnabas, a nearly 200-year-old vampire who longed to be cured. The supernatural soap shifted between the present and the 18th century to tell its gothic tale. A prime-time revival mounted in 1991 possessed more special effects, sex and gore than its bare-bones original, but it never caught on and was buried by NBC in less than two months.
