First Look: Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer in “Dark Shadows.”


Courtesy of the folks at Best-Horror-Movies, here’s your first look at Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer in Tim Burton’s reboot of the 1960s Gothic horror soap “Dark Shadows.”

Depp stars as the vampire Barnabas Collins. Pfeiffer stars as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard. The movie hits theaters on May 11.

Here’s a synopsis:

“In 1752, the Collins family sails from Liverpool, England to North America. The son, Barnabas, grows up to be a wealthy playboy in Collinsport, Maine and is the master of Collinwood Manor. He breaks the heart of a witch, Angelique Bouchard, who turns him into a vampire and buries him alive. In 1972, Barnabas is freed and returns to find his manor in ruin. It is occupied by dysfunctional descendants and other residents, all of whom have secrets.”

The soap ran from 1966 to 1971. It was remade as a television series in the 1990s with British actor Ben Cross starring as Barnabas.
