ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Did you watch the soap opera “Dark Shadows” growing up? I loved it, but it spooked me. This movie is less spooky and more funny. You might expect that because it’s Johny Depp teaming up with his favorite director Tim Burton. It’s a terrific reboot of a tv classic also called “Dark Shadows”.
This is the eighth time Johnny Depp and Tim Burton have teamed up. Anytime they do, you know it’s going to be magic. They’ve done it again. Dark shadows is funny and freaky but silly and I wish Michelle Pfeiffer had more to do in this movie. But, that’s one of my few complaints.
I like this one a lot. I give “Dark Shadows” four out of five reels in the reel world.
