Every Family Has Its Demons

Vampire Barnabas Collins 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 and family have fallen into ruin.

Germany German (Deutsch)

Im Jahr 1752 stechen Joshua und Naomi Collins mit ihrem kleinen Sohn Barnabas im englischen Liverpool in See, um in Amerika ein neues Leben zu beginnen. Doch selbst auf den Weiten des Ozeans gelingt es ihnen nicht, dem geheimnisvollen Fluch der Familie zu entkommen. Zwei Jahrzehnte später: Barnabas erobert die Welt oder doch zumindest das Städtchen Collinsport/Maine. Als Herr von Collinwood Manor verfügt Barnabas über Reichtum und Macht - bis der unverbesserliche Frauenheld den gravierenden Fehler begeht, Angelique Bouchards Herz zu brechen. Angelique ist eine Hexe im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes und beschert ihm ein Schicksal, das schlimmer ist als der Tod: Sie verwandelt ihn in einen Vampir, um ihn dann lebendig zu begraben.

France French (Français)

En 1752, Joshua et Naomi Collins quittent Liverpool, en Angleterre, pour prendre la mer avec leur jeune fils Barnabas, et commencer une nouvelle vie en Amérique. Mais même un océan ne parvient pas à les éloigner de la terrible malédiction qui s’est abattue sur leur famille. Vingt années passent et Barnabas a le monde à ses pieds, ou du moins la ville de Collinsport, dans le Maine. Riche et puissant, c’est un séducteur invétéré… jusqu’à ce qu’il commette la grave erreur de briser le cœur d’Angelique Bouchard. C’est une sorcière, dans tous les sens du terme, qui lui jette un sort bien plus maléfique que la mort : celui d’être transformé en vampire et enterré vivant. Deux siècles plus tard, Barnabas est libéré de sa tombe par inadvertance et débarque en 1972 dans un monde totalement transformé…

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Nel 1752 Joshua e Naomi Collins, insieme al figlioletto Barnabas, salpano da Liverpool, in Inghilterra, in cerca di una nuova vita negli Stati Uniti. Ma neppure l'oceano è sufficiente a sfuggire alla maledizione che ha colpito la loro famiglia. Due decenni dopo Barnabas (Johnny Depp) si è sistemato nella cittadina di Collinsport, Maine. Signore della tenuta Collinwood Manor, Barnabas è ricco, potente ed è un vero playboy, ma compie l'errore fatale di spezzare il cuore di Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). Angelique è una strega e gli assegna un destino peggiore della morte: lo trasforma in vampiro e lo fa seppellire vivo. Dopo duecento anni la tomba di Barnabas viene inavvertitamente aperta liberando il vampiro nel 1972, in un mondo molto diverso da quello di cui aveva memoria. Barnabas fa ritorno a Collinwood Manor per scoprire che la sua casa è andata in rovina, ma che gli eredi della sua eccentrica famiglia vi risiedono ancora, ognuno con i propri segreti oscuri.
