worst trash ever: Dark Shadows movie  
OMG.There is so much wrong with the movie plot it almost doesn't bare writing about: So Maggie and Vicki are one and the same are they? So Vicki saw Josette as a child, did she? So David is very scary ...in a sheet, no wonder everyone ignores him. So Laura is helpful is she? So Angelique employs werewolves, does she? Carolyn is one? Roger: no sympathy there as he just leaves and makes the Roger of the early year on tv look positively ...well, fatherly. Oh, what else? Liz goes along with vampirism, does she? Angelique worked for the Collins family? Barnabas kills Julia? Angelique is not from a foreign country? Vicki was crazy, huh? I HATE THIS MOVIE and hope it's memory is forgotten forever!

So, you watched it? I thought you were going to boycott it.

sorry no I didn't
I would not give one cent to their success . I read the entire plot as Wikipedia. Sounds horrid.

Re: sorry no I didn't
I see. Well, as much as I don't consider hating a movie you haven't seen to be in good judgment, it's your choice. However, I wouldn't hold my breath about other people following your lead. The majority of people seeing the film don't care much about the original series nor its creators, they only care about the people making this film now, and since this is a Burton/Depp community, most of its members will likely base their theater-going choices on this fandom rather than that of the original show.
If it's any consolation to you, the film isn't doing very well at the box office. It won't ruin anyone's career, but it won't go down in history either. My personal opinion is that the costumes and music are great, while the plot and dialogue are lacking. The acting isn't bad, but there's only so much you can do with poor writing.
I realize your frustration, but I would request that you put a spoiler alert in your post's title, or put it behind a cut. As much as I can sense you wouldn't mind ruining the film for those intending to see it, I don't think pissing people off with spoilers would serve your cause in a positive manner.
