Synopsis

Johnny Depp is Barnabas Collins, a reluctant vampire who seeks to avenge a witch’s curse. The witch, Angelique, has turned him into a vampire, and buried him alive. Two centuries later he is inadvertently freed from his tomb and Barnabas emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to his home, Collinwood Manor, to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harbouring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family troubles. Directed by Tim Burton.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
