Pimp Daddy Vamp Cane?
Jonathan Frid as the original Barnabas Collins, or
Ben Cross in the 90s version of Dark Shadows?
And RIP Jonathan Frid - it seems whenever a famous vampire dies we're tempted to make undead jokes... and let this be no different. I mean he died on Friday the 13th! Somebody man that coffin, stat.
I've never seen any of the original Dark Shadows - my mother was a huge fan, though. So when the 90s version with Cross came on we watched that together and I remember enjoying it but I haven't seen it since then. Which brings us to the upcoming Tim Burton version - I've admitted this before but I'm like one of five people on the internet that actually really loved the trailer. Which was unexpected! I was all set to hate it based off of pictures. I'm not including Johnny Depp in this poll though because we haven't seen the movie yet, it could be a cinematic abortion a la everything else Burton's made for the past decade or so. We'll have to see if he's worthy of that pimp cane or not.
