I seldom review movies. One reason is that I have such eccentric tastes that even the Netflix computer was so confused by my viewing habits that it couldn't figure out what to recommend. I figure Dark Shadows may have trouble with the film critics. That's because critics seem to have an obsessive need to label everything. This movie is not the laugh out loud comedy the commercials imply. On the other hand, it's not a heavy duty horror film, either. It's a light hearted fun movie that's visually interesting and fun to watch. So, my advice would be to go and see it and enjoy it and not worry too much about what it's supposed to be.
