Mini Review - Dark Shadows

Dark Shadows (out May 10) is disappointing. The lure of director Tim Burton and a half-decent trailer had me thinking this would be a sharp, witty black comedy. Sadly, that wasn’t the case. There were only a handful of genuine laughs… and that puts it on a par with Scary Movie 3. Deserving of praise are the gifted set decorators and make up artists. Grade: C+.
