"VISUALLY STUNNING, HILARIOUS AND LOTS OF FUN!"
-Scott Mantz, ACCESS HOLLYWOOD
From the wonderfully warped imagination of Tim Burton comes the story of Barnabas Collins, a dashing aristocrat who is turned into a vampire by a jilted lover and entombed for two centuries. Emerging form his coffin into the world of 1972, he returns to his once-majestic home, only to fine the few dysfunctional descendents of the Collins family who remain. Determined to return his family name to its former glory, Barnabas is thwarted at every turn by his former lover - the seductive witch Angelique (Eva Green) - in this "wildly imaginitive" (Sam Hallenbeck, NBC-TV) adventure.
Although this is certainly not the best Tim Burton film (nor even the best work Burton and Depp have done together), it's an entertaining, light hearted movie and is an excellent choice if you just want something fun.
Probably more like 3.5 stars than 3.
