Johnny Depp stars in director Tim Burton's big screen adaptation of the cult classic 1960s gothic soap opera. When 1770s playboy Barnabas Collins crosses the wrong woman, he is cursed into a fate worse than death -- turned into a vampire and buried alive. When he is inadvertently awoken from his tomb two centuries later, he emerges into the very changed world of 1972. Returning home to Collinwood Manor, he finds that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin, and the dysfunctional remnants of his family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets.
