Plot: In 1772 wealthy playboy Barnabas Collins is turned into a vampire and buried alive by a jilted lover–witch. Two hundred years later, he is unearthed and taken in by his dysfunctional descendants.
Spin: The eighth cinematic collaboration between Depp and director Tim Burton is a peculiar-bordering-on-camp comedy that will likely perplex or anger diehard fans of the (peculiar-bordering-on-camp) horror soap opera.
