The next of their collaborations that we are yet to see is the upcoming Dark Shadows, set to be released on Friday 11th May, which is based on the gothic-horror TV series, Dark Shadows which aired during 1966–1971.
Dark Shadows, directed by Tim Burton features, of course, the talented and beautiful Helena Bonham Carter, as well as Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green and Chloë Grace Moretz. Moretz is also said to be starring in the remake of 1976’s Carrie which will be released next year in March.
But back to Dark Shadows, Johnny Depp stars as Barnabas Collins, a 200-year-old vampire, and Michelle Pfeiffer as his cousin Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, a reclusive matriarch of the Collins family.
At the beginning Barnabas breaks the heart of a witch, Angelique Bouchard, who turns him into a vampire and buries him alive during the 18th century. In 1972, Barnabas is accidentally freed from his coffin and returns to find his once-magnificent mansion in ruin.
The manor is currently occupied by Barnabas’ dysfunctional descendants (Pfeiffer, Carter Moretz), all of whom are hiding dark and horrifying secrets.
The film looks like a classic Burton masterpiece and I cannot wait to go and see it.
