Doubt of a Shadows

I've been keenly anticipating the new Dark Shadows movie ever since the Tim Burton project was first rumored, but now that the film's trailer has been released, I'm starting to wonder if I'm setting myself up for disappointment.  Judging from the clips, the new DS seems to favor drollery over melodrama, the comic over the Gothic.  And as much as I love the macabre oeuvre of Johnny Depp, I'm not sure the actor is the right choice for the role of Barnabas Collins (the urbane vampire immortalized by Jonathan Frid in the original TV series).  Still, I'm not giving up hope yet, and will be scurrying to the the local multiplex when the film premieres this May.
