Trailer: Dark Shadows

0

So, for better or worse, sickness and in health, richer or for poorer, come hell or high water, here is the Dark Shadows trailer... and it's actually not nearly as bad I as I had feared. As we all feared. When I had first posted set photos from this film a few months ago, I did what no journalist should do: Judge a film by its set photos. Perhaps, though, I was uninformed of the context. I vaguely remember my mother watching a hazy show called Dark Shadows back on Sci-Fi channel, but it seemed more like a soap opera to me back then. This trailer, however, highlights the film's comedic side, which actually seems to support the silly make-up and ridiculous acting from Depp. I dare say this could be a spiritual successor to Beetlejuice. Please don't stone me.

Let's face it, Tim Burton's career has been in somewhat of a creative nosedive for the past 10 years. I call it the Millennium Curse. Quite a few once-great filmmakers fell prey to this curse, including Terry Gilliam, the Wachowski brothers, Robert Zemeckis and so on... but now that we're approaching the double digits, perhaps a change is in order. Perhaps the curse has been lifted... That's if you believe in that sort of thing. With the heralding of a Beetlejuice sequel and evidence of this Dark Shadows trailer seeming "not bad," perhaps it's a sign of a return to form.

Or it could just be another crap pile like Alice in Wonderland. You be the judge!
