Tim Burton has to be kidding with this one. What a waste of a perfectly good cast and a total INSULT to the original TV series. Why didn't Burton simply make a campy vampire movie totally unrelated to Dark Shadows? Heck, he could have remade Love At First Bite and threw in some scenes with George Hamilton and had a comedic field day!! Those of us who grew up with the original series will NOT pay good money to see this!
