I saw Dark Shadows on Friday. I really liked it, but I was one of the kids who would run home from school to get home by 3:30 to catch the TV program. Not for everyone, but if you like (really) campy horror flicks, Tim Burton, and/or Johnny Depp, you'll get some chuckles. Liked the homage they paid to the Terminator
trilogy and War of the Roses
. There were probably more references in there that I didn't catch.
Edited to add: some of the actors from the old TV series were guests at the ball at Collinwood. Time to go "aww...!"
