Tim Burton’s reimagining of the ’60s gothic soap opera Dark Shadows is quickly approaching, and the more I see of Johnny Depp’s take on vampire Barnabas Collins, the more intrigued I am to see the final film. Sure, it looks more campy than fans of the original show would like, but it does have potential to be a lot of fun. If you need more convincing, check out this cool little featurette Warner Bros. recently released that touches on vampires in film and television over the years while giving a look into how the production of the new Dark Shadows came together.
Dark Shadows takes a bite out of cinemas on May 11.
