Brush up on your vampire history with this new Dark Shadows featurette

04.27.2012by: Jake Dee

DARK SHADOWS - which I've now come to accept as nothing but a vampire lampoon - is only two weeks from hitting theaters everywhere. To keep you plugged in, we have a new featurette Tim Burton's latest below, which allows you to brush up on your vampire history. Do so at once!

With Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green (below) Jackie Earle Haley, Chloe Moretz, Gulliver McGrath, Bella Heathcote and Jonny Lee Miller:

In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas has the world at his feet, or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Brouchard. A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique 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, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman, to help with her family troubles.

Also residing in the manor is Elizabeth's ne'er-do-well brother, Roger Collins; her rebellious teenage daughter Carolyn Stoddard; and Roger's precocious 10-year-old son, David Collins. The mystery extends beyond the family, to caretaker Willie Loomis and David's new nanny, Victoria Winters.

DARK SHADOWS descends May 11th.
