Photo: Johnny Depp’s Dark Shadows Vampire Has a Ghoulish Glow About Him


Does anyone else think that a trailer for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows is just around the corner?  The release date – May 11 – is looming on the moonlit horizon.  While we await the first footage, how about another photo?

Yes, a new pic of Johnny Depp as the vampire Barnabas Collins has been exhumed featuring those sullen features of his and that greasy, matted down hair and elongated fingers.  This is the second official photo of Depp to come out of the film, the other is featured right here.

Head inside for a larger look at the image on the right…if you dare.

Depp is joined in the film by Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote, Chloe Moretz and Gulliver McGrath.  Set in the ’70s (with a few flashbacks to the 1700s), Dark Shadows is based on the gothic television soap opera of the same name.  Pic comes courtesy of Cine Heroes.
