Every Family Has Its Demons
Plot: An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection.
Story: In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet-or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy...until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better...
Did you know: The time line cited in the film appears to be accurate: 1760 (at 00:35) + 1 year (construction of the Collinsport dock and the Joshua Collins Cannery) + 15 years (construction of Collinwood at 02:08) = 1776; 1776+196 (entombment at 43:20) = 1972, the year in which the bulk of the film is set. Also Barnabas' age of 6 years on leaving Liverpool (end credits) + 1 year + 15 years = 22 years when he was propositioned by Angelique. Early press releases state that the family left Liverpool in 1752.
