Dark Shadows, Johnny Depp And A Giveaway

October is here and our thoughts begin to turn to fall 250px-Darkshadowsfestivals, cooler weather, and Halloween. With that comes visions of ghosts, goblins and vampires.

Vampires remind me of watching the original 1960s T.V. show Dark Shadows with Jonathan Frid playing the mysterious vampire, Barnabas Collins. Later I watched the remake of the series, but found it wasn’t as good to me.

Earlier this year director Tim Burton took the cult classic back to the big screen with his version of Dark Shadows starring Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins. While I haven’t seen the movie yet, I am also a Depp fan and have read some interesting reviews of the movie.

If you aredvd cover a fan of Dark Shadows and/or Johnny Depp, I have a giveaway today you might enjoy. Warner Bros. Pictures just released Burton’s Dark Shadows on DVD and Blu-Ray, along with the Dark Shadows Blog App!  

From the incredible mind of Burton comes the hit film Dark Shadows, based on the classic television series! Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) has been trapped for two centuries by an evil witch (Eva Green) who just happens to be an ex lover. Barnabas now has to struggle with the ever changing 1970s and save his families business! With an all star cast that includes Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller and more, Dark Shadows will be sure to whet your appetite for fun.

  1. I have Dark Shadows on my Netflix list. Can't wait.


  2. Mason - Oh, Dark Shadows is a classic! Thanks for reminding us of it :-)

  3. I like Tim Burton movies so this is one I'd like to see. Also a Johnny Depp fan. I did try a few things out on the blog app. Thanks for the chance to win this Blu-Ray combo pack!

  4. Emailing you ASAP, missed this one at the theatre as our local movie house only had it playing one weekend and my husband and I were both sick and could not go.

    Johnny Depp looks like he had a good time playing one of my favorite cheesy television series characters, poor old Barnabas Collins will never be the same after his version of his character!

  5. I took the Creepy Enough Quiz? and I got Collins Creep-tastic.
