The best thing about “Dark Shadows“ was Helena Bonham Carter’s outfit at the premier. We happen to be huge fans of Helena’s eccentric and original style, and LOVED her Vivienne Westwood dress. More than we loved the movie, in fact. Bonham’s husband strong>Tim Burton’s film was definitely aimed at kids and the whole thing was just plain silly. But it was saved by the 1972 period costumes, hair, sets, and appealing music. Had this movie been set in modern times it might have been intolerable.
