Movie Review: Dark Shadows

I will admit that I entered the cinema with slight hesitation after reading the Dorchester Plaza’s own review of Dark Shadows – we were tied between seeing a new film or going to see Avengers for the second time! As many people know and would expect from Tim Burton, this […]
