Dark shadows

Starring:Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green and Jackie Earle Haley

Director: Tim Burton

Genre: Horror comedy

If you watched Sleepy Hollow, then you remember a young Jonny Depp living through the dreadful nocturnal details of a township where he was sent as an inspector. But even as the terror dawned on him every night, his reactions left the film audiences laughing. This time he returns in a similar movie tagged a horror comedy and he doesn’t disappoint.

He plays Barnabas, a rich playboy in Collinsport, who has so much good coming his way until he meets this beautiful girl. Like any man, he would like to impress and thereon becomes obsessed with dark magic and as he tries to prove to one woman that he’s in fact a witch, she falls for him.

She won’t let him love his favourite girl and in fact casts a spell on her and she leaps to her death from a nearby cliff called Widow’s Peak. Barnabas runs after Josette but is too late. He jumps over the cliff to kill himself, but Angelique turns Barnabas into a vampire. She convinces the townspeople that he is a vampire and they come and bury him alive in a chained coffin in the woods. It’s not your average creepy horror, it is funny as well.
