Dark Shadows, Johnny Depp And A Giveaway
October is here and our thoughts begin to turn to fall festivals, 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 are 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. Thanks to the good folks at Partnershub Family, I have a Blu-Ray combo pack to giveaway. Enjoy the blog app below and then check the end of the post for the giveaway guidelines.
The Blu-Ray combo pack (Blu-Ray and DVD) giveaway is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada only and no post office box addresses can not be accepted. To enter the giveaway, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with ‘Win Dark Shadows’ in the subject line. Your message should include your name and mailing address.
