An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection.
The movie was not as great as I had expected it to be. There were a lot of characters introduced but had a very limited time to totally explore them. The progression of the story was fast but very shallow. One minute you see Barnabas being seduced by Angelique then the other minute you see him confessing his feelings towards Victoria, who I think is a weak character. I think it would have been better if the film focused on less characters and delved more on their stories. Nevertheless, the film was witty and funny, thanks to Johnny Depp's superb acting skills.
