I love this genre, and was excited to see this film .
I did enjoy most of it though I think I was expecting a bit from this character as Johnny Depp has a tendency to bring an the over the top charm to those he plays . I felt that Barnabas Collins was a little subdued and lacked the quirkiness I have come to love about the Depp roles .
As for the movie itself I enjoyed all the performances and I enjoyed the movie but thought it was a little long winded in the mid section with not so much going on , now having said that I can say, I did like it .
The ending could have left an opening for a possible second edition and I would definitely go and see it.
It gets an 8 out of 10 from me 🙂
