A fabulous new Johnny Depp Dark Shadows movie trailer video has viewers in stitches at the totally hysterical preview for Tim Burton‘s latest cinematic offering.

The original Dark Shadows television show may not have meant to be campy and deliciously amusing to watch — but it just was. I am personally delighted at how Tim Burton has played homage to the cult classic camp status of the original Dark Shadows nighttime soap opera series.

In the new Johnny Depp Dark Shadows movie trailer, Tim Burton has taken the unintentionally funny nature of the original series and crafted it into an intentionally hilarious art form. If I’ve already laughed out loud from just watching the Dark Shadows movie trailer video, I have high hopes for the film.

Plus, Tim Burton favorite Johnny Depp could not be any more awesome as vampire Barnabas Collins. In the Dark Shadows trailer, Depp strikes just the right balance between the serious and the comical, breathing new life into the tale of Barnabas Collins with his own unique twist on the iconic character.
