New official “DARK SHADOWS” Image shows Depp as Barnabas

I am a huge Dark Shadows fan. As a kid my mom tricked me into watching it by saying there were ghosts, witches, and vampires. Little did I know that I had fallen in love with a daytime soap opera. So when that horrendous picture of Johnny Depp as Barnabas emerged online a couple of weeks ago I nearly flipped over a table. He looked like the Mad Hatter dressed for casual Tuesday at his job.

Well in response to the internet backlash an official image has been released via Entertainment Weekly and it is glorious! Every character looks perfectly cast, including Barnabas who seems to have ditched the pasty white make up and looks exactly as I Imagined Depp to look as the show’s tortured vampire. See the image below and click to see it at full res!

Fernando Caire is a cosplayer, an artist, an aspiring Video editor, a prop builder, a writer, and a cinephile, with a PHD in awesome. He loves cinema, both good and bad. You will catch him once a month with a group of like minded masochists who endure 8 hours of the worst movies in cinematic history...for fun. He loves video games (shows off his "team Ps3" shirt) and loves writing about them when he gets the chance (though the only ones he ever received for review have been bad). The San Diego Comic Con is what he considers to be his once a year vacation. You will find him in line for Hall H bright and early and if you are between him and any kind of free swag...God help you.
