    Jonathan Frid, who played vampire Barnabas Collins on the cult classic TV show "Dark Shadows," has died. He was 87.


    Frid died just weeks before the release of a feature film adaptation of the show starring Johnny Depp and directed by Tim Burton. His "Dark Shadows" co-star, Kathryn Leigh Scott, told TheWrap he died Friday -- Friday the 13th, she wryly noted -- and said his family had not wanted to release the news earlier.

    Speaking of Dark Shadows, I'm not sure what to think about the new movie coming out.

    It was the awful Dark Shadows trailer that killed him.

    :laugh2: ...sorry, but that was funny ....

    Yeah, I grew up with Dark Shadows too. And the remake looks to me to be just horrible.

    I am guessing that the movie is a spoof. Similar to the "Brady Bunch" movies.

    I'm not so sure, Dep has said he grew up a fan of Dark Shadows as well and always wanted to play the part of Barnabus Collins. I have seen the trailers and it does look much different but I'm not sure it is a spoof

    I haven't seen the trailer but just the commercial & it seemed it was being played for a laugh but that is based on a 30 second commercial. I like Depp so I am sure he is at least good in the role.

    I guess the only way to know for sure is to see it.
