Dark Shadows’ Trailer

I just saw the trailer for Tim Burton's version of "Dark Shadows" which is due out in May and I must say it's either going to be really really good or one of the most horrible things I have ever seen.


The film at least based upon what you see in the trailer really plays upon the camp aspects as does Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins. Jokes about the passage of time since Barnabas was last "alive," for lack of a better word ("awake?"), abound, and the soundtrack, at least in the trailer, includes "Superfly" and "Get It On (Bang a Gong)."(The film is set in 1972.)
Plus you get to see a lot of disco!
It's impossible to tell exactly what you can and get from a two-hour movie based on a 2 minute clip but deep down I'm hoping this film is at least remotely as impressive as its trailer.
