This is another Tim Burton movie. This movie was a bit far fetched, but my husband and I still enjoyed to watch it. All the actors played their rolls well, and it was kind of interesting to see Michelle Pfeiffer play a more 'motherly' role instead of the 'nasty' rolls we have usually seen her play. Although we hadn't seen any of the series of "Dark Shadows" we knew it was based on the series. I think it to be a good "Halloween" movie to watch for when Halloween comes around, but if we had a choice as to which one was better, we think that would be "Corpse Bride". Also, another movie with Michelle Pfeiffer that we saw just recently that was also a kind of Halloween theme was Stardust, of which she also played her roll well here too. All in all, we would recommend "Dark Shadows", if you want a fun Halloween movie to watch on October 31st.
