While watching Dark Shadows, I immediately thought about The Crucible. I don’t know why but I just did! The gist of the movie is below:
In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet-or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better. (Written by Warner Bros. Pictures)
I sat through the whole movie until I had to get up and use the restroom! My ADHD didn’t get the best of me because the movie was so interesting filled with comedic horror! The only thing that bothered me was Michelle Phifer’s lack of expression on her plastic face. Johnny Depp made vampires look sexy too!
