Yup, they’re strange. But I guess only one of them is a vampire. Weren’t they all vampires in the original TV shows? I don’t know, I only remember the early ’90s version with Ben Cross and Joanna Going, and not even that clearly, alas. Anyhoo. Check out a new featurette for Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” that focuses on the film’s dysfunctional family dynamics. See, this would have been easier if they were all vampires. Or at least werewolves.

I mention before that the film has a 50-50 chance of either becoming a big hit or falling flat on its face at the box office. Honestly? After a whopping 9 clips and a half dozen more trailers and featurettes, I’m still not sure where it’s gonna fall…

Johnny Depp leads the all-star cast, which includes Bella Heathcote, Chloe Moretz, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Lee, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Thomas McDonell, and Ray Shirley.
