Johnny Depp In Dark Shadows: Looking Good?

Categories: Film

Johnny Depp still hasn't seen The Tourist and neither has anyone else, but that's long been demoted to a footnote in his otherwise jazzy career.

The chameleon-like voice of Rango has just applied his scissorhands to the part of Barnabas Collins in Dark Shadows, the Tim Burton-directed re-creation of the TV show about a vampire who hangs with the ghouls.

In advance of the film's release, these three photos have been released like bats from the belfry.

Get a load of those bangs.

The vampy lipstick.

Those Streisand-like nails.

No wonder Michelle Pfeiffer looks jealous.

I like Johnny depp's movies and I like him after his Sleepy Hollow movies. I like the way when he makes funny face, this is the new face of depp after the very famous character Jack sparrow  in Pirates of the caribbean.

Umm... I realize you're only about nineteen and never saw a classic vampire film in your life but could you PRETEND to be a journalist and actually do a little research? Thanks.   The hair is based on Jonathan Frid.  You know.. The ORIGINAL actor who played Barnabas Collins in 1966.  The skin and lips is based on Bela Lugosi as Dracula and Count Orlok from Nosferatu.   The nails are also traditional vampire, you know... NOT Twilight.   I think for a TRADITIONAL vampire he looks perfect.

Sure, but he doesn't really look like Barnabas Collins, who was so much more artfully subtle in the original series.

Edward Scissorhands reformed

and Michelle Pfeiffer's facelift, now that's a real horror movie

If he didn't have the stupid/pointless lipstick it would be good.

He looked like a boss in Sweeney Todd.

FAIL!  This is based on a classic vampire!  Go look up how Bela Lugosi looked as Dracula since you're clearly too young or too much a cultural philistine to know.

The Tourist did $278,346,189 in box office world wide, so obviously someone saw it.

Redbox posted their top rentals of 2011:

The original TV vampire--Barnabas Collins!  Watched every episode--vampires, ghosts, witches!!

I loved the show long ago (another person among the legions who hurried home from school to watch), so I'll see this. I like how they styled it similar to the era of the original show instead of updating.

Actually it's very original.  This is TRADITIONAL vampire, not the strangely tan super models of the new films and TV.
