‘Dark Shadows’ re-revived as comedy movie starring Johnny Depp


We share his pain, having hurried home from school to watch the creepy soap opera. There was an epically failed attempt to revive the show decades later (with hot chicks), but it was laughably ridiculous, so I guess they decided to go along with it. If you can’t do horror, do horrible.

Or, maybe . . . it was never dead. *gasp*

“Dark Shadows” apparently has a very loyal cult following. The DVD prices have come down since the advent of Blueray, but they’re still an expensive proposition. Related tweets suggest that cult following is international.
