Seems like Tim Burton’s done it again! This time, it seems he couldn’t be more at home with the Collins family, the salacious supernatural soap opera family that made its way to the Boob Tube in the mid-sixties, and then again in 1991.
Burton, who has made his entire career out of his penchant for his unique, dark and twisted fantasies all with a light-hearted edge – after all, he did get his foot in the door at Disney. Nevertheless, this tale of a vampire from the 17th Century finding himself plopped in the middle of 1970s New England seems like perfect material for Burton to work his unique magic.
And with a cast that includes Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz, Eva Green, Helena Bonham Carter, Jackie Earle Haley, Christopher Lee, Alice Cooper, and long-time collaborator Johnny Deppp – this one’s sure to stay with you far beyond even the grave. Also loving the vintage-inspire costumes provided by Colleen Atwood.
