Dark Shadows was alright. I was expecting it to be at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory level, but is much better than that piece of crap. I did enjoy it and was pretty funny at times, it's just the story is not that interesting, but is easy to follow. The film looks good, Burton's visuals are wonderful in this dark, strange tale of vampires, witches and canned fish. Along with the usual suspects the cast is really good, sad thing is many of them are underused.

Overall, one of the weaker Burton/Depp collaborations. But, I could watch again just for Eva Green. And gets an extra star for that.
