JOHNNY DEPP as Barnabas Collins in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ “DARK SHADOWS,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Johnny Depp stars in “Dark Shadows,” which comes to theaters this Friday. Depp reunites with his frequent collaborator, Tim Burton, to try their hand at bringing a cult TV show to the big screen.

Never one to shy from a challenging role, Depp plays Barnabas Collins, a vampire who finally escapes captivity and meets his descendants who somehow make a vampire seem normal.

Today’s “Film Flashback” looks at another pasty-faced role Depp assumed while working with Burton — “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber on Fleet Street.”
