Johnny Depp, Tim Burton and Eva Green all involved in the same campy project based on a much-loved goth soap of the same name; Dark Shadows should have been brilliant. But it wasn't. Despite the best efforts of a deliberately hammy Depp and a Green'™s sultry siren, the film felt like a flop from start to finish. Much of the blame has to lie at the feet of Burton and his writer Seth Grahame-Smith - who'™s also responsible for stinking up cinemas with the equally odious Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
