OMG. I just saw the first trailer for the May 11, 2012, release of Tim Burton's remake of "Dark Shadows." It had me doing the proverbial ROTFLMAO. Gads, I remember dashing off the school bus into the house to watch this TV show from 1969 through 1971. I remember cursing the every-other-year bus schedule that got me home a half hour too late to see it. No video recorders back then, alas.
I couldn't find a clip of the trailer, but I did find this one introducing the original cast members and their contemporary actors. So for the young and Dark Shadows virgins, here's a clip that will let you in on the skinny.
