Synopsis: 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, each harboring their own dark secrets. (Source)

The staple of the teen-centric films of the 1980s was the role of the bullying douche. These guys always seemed to be good looking or rich or with the prettiest girl or popular or sometimes all of the above. And despite being blessed with so much they all were totally horrible human beings whose only goals in life were to make the already crappy existences of the social misfits in their circle suffer even more than they already were.
