Chloe Moretz comments on the tone of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows

09.14.2011

Yesterday, we put our collective heads together to figure out why Johnny Depp was so damn pasty for DARK SHADOWS. Hardcore sunscreen was the reasoning gave by several readers. It's a good guess, my friends. That was my original thought but it seemed like a shit ton of sunscreen.

Anyway, Movies.com spoke with one of the cast members of Burton's adaptation, the adorable Chloe Moretz who will be playing Carolyn Stoddard. She's been so kind to clue us in on the tone of the film.

Here's the exchange below:

Movies.com: With Dark Shadows, what is your take on Carolyn Stoddard?

Chloe Moretz: Oh, Carolyn, that’s a fun character. That’s a really fun character. She is crazy. She is this teenager, like 15-year-old hippie who is into The Carpenters and Alice Cooper. She’s super music-y and raw, like free love, you know. She’s fun. I can’t say much because he has a really dark secret I can’t tell you.

Movies.com: Something that people obsessed with the old soap opera would know or a new secret?

CM: No, it’s new. It’s new to everything so go see it. May of next year, Dark Shadows!

Movies.com: Is it totally serious or with a wink?

CM: Oh no, no. It’s Tim Burton so it’s like Beetlejuice. I have to say it’s a mixture of Beetlejuice, a teeny bit of Sweeney and the scariness of Sweeney but the fun of Sleepy Hollow with the scariness of Sleepy Hollow. I’d definitely say it’s a lot like Sleepy Hollow because you go from the Ichabod Crane character to the Headless Horseman who’s comedic and yet terrifying. It straddles that fine line of camp and drama so it’s like a drama horromedy thriller.

Movies.com: Did you have hours and hours of old soap opera research?

CM: I did a lot of musical research, so I listened to a lot of music from the era. My character is so different from the soap opera.

Movies.com: But there are hundreds of hours you could have watched if you’d chosen to.

CM: Hundreds. I think they went on for 20 seasons or something. It’s crazy.

She's a 14 year old kid, give her a break. I'm pretty sure almost all kids in this world have no idea what Sleepy Hollow is. Or Sweeney Todd.

So basically

What this tells me that they took the character names from Dark Shadows but will really have nothing to do with Dark Shadows.
