This underrated Tim Burton gem resurrects the soap opera Dark Shadows from the grave and brings it to new heights with a contemporary interpretation of a cult classic. After being buried alive for 200 years by his spurned witch paramour Angelique, vampire Barnabas Collins is released from his earthly prison, must adapt to life in the 70s, and tries to restore his family's legacy to its former glory. If you are a fan of campy, playful, macabre works, then you will adore this film that has a surprising amount of wit and plenty of fun, over-the-top moments. Dark Shadows is of my favorite movies (I think I've watched it at least 15 times) and is the perfect way to start your Halloween movie marathon.
