I take a wait and see attitude, you can’t tell anything from a leaked picture, in the sunlight, walking to the actual filming.
As another who ran home to see Dark Shadows, I think we all share a reverence for the show and both Depp and Burton have separately intimated that they will look to honor the feeling of the original series. I say give it a chance. And if you do want to hear a song that does remain true to the spirit of the character of Barnabas Collins, check out my own song about Barnabas here:
HERE’s the song with video:
These photos just show that neither Tim Burton nor Johnny Depp are competent to handle Dark Shadows. He should look like Jonathan Frid, not a sex maniac bleach faced Michael Jackson. We don’t need someone who played with children shown on screen even if it’s not him.
Series 1 was excellent. Series 2 was excellent. Series 3 (blond long-haired rocker Barnabas and Japanese Julia Hoffman) was a disaster. Any reason to think 4 will be anything but atrocious? Bring back Dan Curtis!
have these two been hit in the head???this dosen’t even look remotly like Barnabas Collins!!!they need to at least watch DARK SHADOWS before thinking about a movie, then they would realize some things are best left as they are!!!
– Haven’t you heard!?? They ARE models! LOL! Or at least they’re just wintaig to be discovered . Amazing couple, right? You did a *beautiful* job with Melissa’s makeup. Thanks so much for taking good care of her, Marisa.06.19.10 11:05pm
