Dark Shadows dials up the neon with 9 new character posters

Mar. 20, 2012by: Alex Maidy

I was not sure how to feel about DARK SHADOWS when the trailer finally hit last week. Part of me was disappointed that it was not a dark and serious horror film. But, upon reflection, even SLEEPY HOLLOW had an air of humor about it. People have been complaining that this does not look like "classic Burton," when it screams everything that Tim Burton has built his style on.

The new character posters for DARK SHADOWS are no exception. They carry the same retro, kitschy feel as the trailer did.

The more I watch the trailer, the more interested I am in the film. I have not been completely let down by a Burton-Depp film yet. Believe me, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY and ALICE IN WONDERLAND were close, but they still kept a level of odd fun about them.

DARK SHADOWS opens May 11th

This movie looks fun. Melodramatic, and a bit cheesy. All parts of the fun.

Chloe Moretz

Re extra tidbit: I can totally see where you're getting the "Chloe Moretz will grow into a hottie" thing, and it doens't make you creepy at all. I mean, look at that poster! She's giving Eva Green a run for her money there.

And, misgivings about the tone aside, you've gotta agree that cast is amazing.

no thanks... not interested.

not after he screwed over planet of the Apes and numerous other films.... Dark Shadows was NOTHING like Addams Family, and yet that's how it's being marketed.

apparantly. i gave up on Tim Burton after watching Planet of the Apes, his Alice in Wonderland was weird for weird's sake... basically... no redeeming qualities.

I don't know why, but I'm thinking this'll be a "bait and switch" type movie. Advertised as a goth comedy but its actually more goth drama with bits of comedic elements. I'll bite. I think it'll be my first Burton flick since Sweeney Todd I'll see in theaters.

These posters look great. The colors are amazing. I'd put them all on a wall.
