Johnny Depp does his best Robert Pattinson in Dark Shadows.

Ticket giveaway – Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows

Aspiring set decorator Tim Burton returns to the director’s chair, this time with his cinematic  interpretation of the cult classic TV series Dark Shadows. The gothic comedy features an all-star cast, led by Johnny Depp as terminally out-of-step vampire Barnabas Collins, who after being entombed for two hundred years re-emerges in a new kind of fresh hell… 1972.

The Snipe News has ten – yes, ten – pairs of tickets to give away for an exclusive sneak peek of Dark Shadows on Wednesday, May 9 at the Scotiabank Theatre at 7 p.m.

Movie trailer – Dark Shadows (2012):


In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America.  But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet—or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy… until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive.

Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972.  He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family troubles.

To win a pair of passes to see DARK SHADOWS for yourself, be one of the first ten people to leave a comment below. The film will be screening on Wednesday, May 9 at the Scotiabank Theatre at 7:00 pm. Contest closes on Monday, May 7 at 5 p.m.

    I love Johnny Depp – he’s the most under rated actor in Hollywood today. I used to watch the original soap opera Dark Shadows on tv as a small child – so cheesy but interesting storyline and plot. Cheers!

    Looks like a fun campy version of the original soap opera, though I still like Ben Cross’ version from the 90’s. Looking forward to seeing this movie!
