Dark Shadows - Film out of place

The third evening of August was dedicated to the cinema. It wasn't a regular night though. O'Porto's council in partnership with Inatel organised a series of movies a series of cinema screenings from the 3rd of August until the 1st of September. Me and a few more friends had the chance to see the first night and enjoy a atypical open air session, in the middle of Crystal Palace's gardens.

For this night, they brought to us Dark Shadows, the newest motion picture by Tim Burton, that tells the story about a vampire, Barnabas Collins (Johnny Deep) who returns to his ancestral home and tries to re-establish the honour and magnificence of it's family's name and fishing empire, in a village called Colonial-era Maine. The movie is set in 1972, one hundred years after Barnabas was buried alive to spend all eternity confined to the four walls of his coffin. What he doesn't know is that since he last set foot on earth, the world has change and many things are a wonder for his eyes. Also, the woman who buried him, Angelique (Eva Green) controls the only fishing business that now controls Colonial's fishing market.

A story about love and reunion, is the cinematographic adaptation of the daytime soap that aired on ABC from 1966 until 1971.
