The so-called camp in the original series was due to the fact it was filmed live and with the budget, ABC gave Dan Curtis, retakes were impossible. I'm not a fan of the work of Burton. Depp sounds like, in this trailer, Captain Jack Sparrow with fangs. lol
Fair enough. I just think it's incredibly sub-par writing and filming, especially for network television at the time. Any BBC series of the 60s, which were filmed with far less talent, time, money, and skill, stand up better than the original Dark Shadows.
Aside from Planet of the Apes
, I have seen every film Burton has ever directed and, with the exception of Batman Returns
, I enjoyed each one at first viewing. One could say I'm a mark for him, esp. when he directs Johnny Depp.
