Peter Travers: 'Dark Shadows' Is Luscious, Yet Boring

Tim Burton and Johnny Depp's latest team-up is a disappointment

By |

Peter Travers says that while Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are one of the best teams in movies, their remake of the Sixties vampire soap Dark Shadows is only entertaining for about 40 minutes. Burton delivers luscious visuals and Depp is typically freaky and funny, but ultimately, the plot spins its wheels for well over an hour after the novelty wears off.

Dark Shadows marks Burton and Depp's eighth movie together (the full list is: Ed WoodEdward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd, Alice and Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride and Dark Shadows), and Travers wants to know which is your favorite. Let him know in the comments below, on Twitter or via e-mail.
