Dark Shadows

I was thrilled to hear the news about Tim Burton and Dark Shadows. He’s the perfect person to turn the show into a movie.
Dark Shadows is all that is great about gothic soap operas. Victoria Winters plays the perfect virginal heroine whose life is in constant danger. The Collins are creepy and strange. David is evil or misunderstood, depending on the episode. I’m 120 episodes in, and we finally have ghosts. I know we end up with vampires and werewolves. I’m looking forward to what comes next on the classic series, and I can’t wait to see Burton’s interpretation.
