Dark Shadows

Air Date: 05/18/12 The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy in "Dark Shadows"...until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard who 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. This week Robin reviews the films acting, screenwriting, and how it fares among other Tim Burton films.
