Stylish quirky take on the oddball 1970s TV series which has more than a touch of the Adams family about it. Good period detail and the cast look like they are having a ball with Green regularly stealing the show. Exactly where Depp has dragged his accent from I'm not sure, but his reluctantly vampiric Barnabas Collins is good value.
At least one revelation comes too late, and in common with much of the other supporting characters feels under explored.
Verdict: A good taster for the TV series?
