About Dark Shadows
Director Tim Burton brings the cult classic series “Dark Shadows” to the big screen in a gothic comedy featuring an all-star cast.
In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from England to start a new life in America. Two decades later Barnabas is the master of Collinwood Manor—rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard, who dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries pass before Barnabas is freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin and the dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets.
“Dark Shadows” stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Chloe Grace Moretz, Bella Heathcote and Gulliver McGrath.
Burton directed the film from a screenplay by Seth Grahame-Smith, story by John August and Grahame-Smith, based on the television series created by Dan Curtis. The producers are Richard D. Zanuck Graham King, Johnny Depp, Christi Dembrowski, and David Kennedy, with Chris Lebenzon, Tim Headington and Bruce Berman serving as executive producers.

Mysterious Curse definitely looks like a Royal Velvet dupe, at least in the bottle.
