    Seeing as he has a cameo appearance in the new film, I'm guessing he wasn't as morally opposed to it as some of you are.

    I posted the following in the "movie" thread, which summarizes my feelings:

    The reason why the soap opera worked is that it was played absolutely "straight"; by some fantastic actors.

    Over time, they worked dramatizations of historic events (the Salem Witch Trials) - and many literary classics - (Dante's Inferno, the Aeneid, etc;. and the standard "horror" literature into their basic plotline.
    I researched and read all these things because of the show.

    Much as I like Johnny Depp, I'm not interested a a "camp" treatment.

    Usually, when a movie is remade, or if a TV show is turned into a movie, some network picks up the original and shows it about the same time as the release.

    Maybe he just needed the money.

    Oh, please. It's not being "morally opposed", it's thinking that it looks effing stupid. They didn't make the original with the intent of it being campy, they just had to run with cheap sets and no budget. This looks like another 'take a vague idea from original source and turn it into WACKY TIM BURTON FILM WHERE JOHNNY DEPP IS WEIRD!' See also Charlie and the Chocolate Factory...)

    Goodness! I thought he died years ago!
    I loved that show. Rushed home from school to see it.
    Honestly, we changed out dinner hour at my parents home when I was a kid so we all could sit down and watch it. We were all addicted to it.
    From what I have seen of scenes from the new movie, it is just a joke, nothing like the original show. But I should have expected nothing more from Tim Burton, I just hoped. What a shame, I had been so looking forward to it.
    RIP Barnabas, you were a icon.

    I just saw a picture of Johnny Depp in People magazine in a new role as Tonto in a remake of the "Lone Ranger". He was wearing black Kiss-style make-up and had a dead crow on his head (or some kind of bird). I can't remember if Tim Burton was involved.

    I was in the hair salon so I don't know how old the magazine was.

    I was very sad to learn that Jonathan passed away.

    I loved "Dark Shadows" and Barnabas and later Quentin made the show for me.

    RIP Jonathan.

    My friend Shauna and I had major crushes on Quentin! We were too scared of Barnabas. And we wanted to be Angelique and go around putting witchy spells on people! What were we - 10-11 years old then? :-) Watched it every day after school.

    I have a book "Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows" by Kathryn Leigh Scott. I may have to read that again this weekend.
