Apparently it's going to be odd...
A new production still has been released from Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows. The film revolves around a vampire (Johnny Depp) who attempts to reconnect with his descendants after spending 200 years in a tomb. Michelle Pfeiffer stars alongside Depp and, as the still portrays, is less-than-comfortable with the reappearance of a long-lost family member.
Burton has said that the film features the prevailing theme of weirdness; Nothing new there then. Burton explained that there’s a strange vibe to the film, in a strange sort of soap opera way. He added, “It has a weird sense of heightened melodrama… It was hard to put into words the tone it was. It had a weird seriousness, but it was funny in a way that wasn’t really funny.”
Hopefully more information regarding the film will be released soon so that curious fans can try to pin down the tone for themselves. Dark Shadows will be released in May.
