In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. Two decades pass and Barnabas has the world at his feet-or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy...until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard. A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972.

- Quick review:
- Johnny Depp, looking fetchingly cadaverous, is Barnabas Collins, vampire, in Tim Burton’s merrily macabre adaptation of the cult ’60s Gothic soap opera series. Although there’s a thick tangle of a tale about love and lust and vengeance, in some ways this is a movie about how totally cool and weird 1972 was. Cue the music.
