Description by Wikipedia

Dark Shadows is a 2012 American horror comedy film based on the gothic television soap opera of the same name, that was broadcast between 1966 and 1971. The film was directed by Tim Burton and stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Bella Heathcote in a dual role. The film had a limited release on May 10, 2012, and was officially released the following day in the United States.

The film performed disappointingly at the US box office but did well in other foreign markets. The film received mixed reviews; critics praised its visual style and consistent humor but felt it lacked a focused or substantial plot and developed characters. The film was produced by Richard D. Zanuck, who died two months after its release. It featured the final appearance of original series actor Jonathan Frid, who died shortly before its release. It was the 200th film appearance (and the fifth appearance in a Tim Burton film) of actor Christopher Lee.
