Currently the film, which is slated to hit Blu-ray/DVD on October 2nd, has a "rotten" percentage of 40% and an average rating of 5.4/10 on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, based on 212 reviews. Reviewers have praised the visuals, acting and the background stories of the characters, but have negatively received the direction and storyline, with the Rotten Tomatoes consensus reading: "The visuals are top notch but Tim Burton never finds a consistent rhythm, mixing campy jokes and gothic spookiness with less success than other Johnny Depp collaborations."
Dark Shadows failed to cash in at the box office, accumulating only $76,555,971. Despite a stellar cast consisting of Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller, and Christopher Lee, the $150 million budgeted film remained a huge disappointment.
