Dark Shadows Alert: First Cast Photo

Entertainment Weekly published the first cast photo for Dark Shadows. Many interested people around the net were horrified by the first photos of Depp in costume floating around the Internet. Most thought Barnabas Collins (Depp) had more in common with the Joker than a vampire. While we don’t have a closeup on Depp, the costuming and makeup look interesting. Depp looks more the part. However, while I do love Johnny, Jonathan Frid had very particular and theatrical facial features. I worry that Johnny will look too groomed, too sleek. The cast is interesting, and there is some good casting choices that have been made. However, only time will tell whether the film will deliver. Burton’s movies have been waning in quality and direction, let’s hope that this movie pushes him forward towards a revival.
