Dark Shadows Then and Now / by Hey Armen

Time Burtons latest flick is all about darkness. Vampires to be exact! Burton is said to have loved this 1960's sitcom as a boy and now as an adult he is bringing his vision of "Dark Shadows" to life. But what was the 1960's version like? Well, lets find out..

The original "Dark Shadows" ran from 1966 to 1971. It was a black and white comedy that was nominated for Primetime Emmy in 1968. Along with Tim Burton, Johnny Depp is also said to have loved the show as a child, Barnabas Collins being his favorite character. Coincidentally he plays the role of Barnabas in Tims' upcoming version. My how life comes full circle.

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see "Dark Shadows" May 11th.
