Critics reviews

Dark Shadows percolates with subtext, but the wry political ideas behind the narrative never threaten to overtake the wild comedy and grotesqueness, the vibrant colors and period detail that Burton luxuriates in. Depp has rarely been funnier, and the supporting cast offers vivid images of the angry, ugly emotions that grow and rage under the canopy of entitlement and privilege.
