Director Tim Burton's screen interpretation of the cult horror-soap opera stars Johnny Depp (Sleepy Hollow) as Barnabas Collins, a vampire who emerges from a two-hundred-year slumber in order to lay claim to Collinwood Manor and his once-proud family estate.
However, the presence of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green, Casino Royale) complicates matters considerably; the evil witch who turned Collins, Angelique is willing to do anything to win his affections, even if it means destroying Barnabas and his entire bloodline.
Written by Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and John August (Big Fish), Dark Shadows features an impressive supporting cast that includes Michelle Pfeiffer (Batman Returns), Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting), Chloë Grace Moretz (Hugo), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy), and Helena Bonham Carter (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street).
