1968. A suburb outside of Tacoma, Washington. I'm an 8th Grader at Lochburn Junior High School. Each morning I take a shortcut and walk to school through an abandoned graveyard across the street from our house. Many times it is foggy (it's Washington) Each afternoon, I run home (through the same graveyard) to watch Dark Shadows. OOOOHHHH! Yes!! I think this is the time that I get my pyschic... well, let's just say I "tune into" my Other Side.
I was sooo thrilled to see all the ads about the new movie starring Johnny Depp. A) I love him as an actor B) it's Dark Shadows and C) it's funny!!!!
Sadly, Jonathan Frid (the original Barnabas) passed away last month. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Frid But, luckily he made a cameo appearance in the new movie!
I've watched the trailer to the new movie many times and I can't wait to go see it in the theater for myself!
