Dreaming of Dark Shadows
You may or may not know that Dark Shadows, the film starring Johnny Depp is coming out May 11.  I'm so excited about this one.  My mom was absolutely hooked on this "vampire meets 1970's soap opera."  How can it get any better when my boyfriend Johnny Depp is going to play the famed Barnabas Collins?  Here's some trivia to get you excited for the film along with a clip.  Enjoy!
