I think anyone who DIDN'T grow up watching Dark Shadows will have more questions than answers with this movie. If you can accept it for what it is and not compare it to the t.v. Show, it's fine and actually pretty humorous. My husband kept asking me questions through out so I came home a recorded a bunch of the 90's remake series so he'd shut up, LOL!
I love Johnny Depp and enjoyed the movie and I enjoyed that it didn't take itself too seriously either. But the story line was pretty jumbled if you weren't familiar with all the DS (or should I say, Dark Mic) back stories.
