AKA Tim Burton the director vs. Tim Burton the producer. These two flicks have the same screenwriter (Seth Grahame-Smith) and the same weirdly awesome retro-horror-action vibe that is typically of so many of Burton’s films. But Dark Shadows has what’s now become known as Burton’s signature cast: the dynamic duo of Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter, with several other big names as backup (Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Jonny Lee Miller, just to name a few). And Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has a wacky, quirky premise based on the well-selling novel of the same name and by the same screenwriter. Fans of the dark, Burtonesque stuff are just as likely to enjoy either flick--but even though Dark Shadows is quintessentially Burton, people might be tired of that formula. We’re betting on the one that’s a little fresher, a little different, and definitely kooky--bring on the vampire hunters.
