Synopsis

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton reteam to resurrect one of the campest TV cults of the 60s in this fang-in-cheek gothic romp. Depp hams it to perfection as Barnabas Collins, a 200-year-old vampire who emerges from his tomb in 1972 to find his once-proud family in decline and the town they built now run by the witch who cursed him to eternal undeath (Eva Green). Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Grace Moretz and Jonny Lee Miller are the descendants whose fortunes Barnabas seeks to revive, while Helena Bonham Carter offers sozzled insight as their live-in shrink and Bella Heathcote adds a sweet air of mystery as the new governess. Take your partners for a surprisingly bawdy and delightfully ditzy danse macabre.
