28 stills from Dark Shadows prove Tim Burton has not yet tired of pancake makeup

We're not sure what to think about Tim Burton's Dark Shadows. The trailer was screamingly silly, and yet Burton has said over and over that he doesn't view this movie as a comedy.

So what is it? A hor-com? We're not sure — but what we do know is that the costumes in this newly released collection of stills are goddamned gorgeous, and there's hardly a stripped pair of tights in the bunch. So is this a new side of Burton, or more of the same?

Dark Shadows will hit theaters on May 11th.
