Editorial Reviews

Barnabas locks the kidnapped Maggie Evans in an Old House basement cell, hoping she will submit to becoming the recreation of his lost love, Josette. A strange young girl in old-fashioned clothing appears to Maggie and, later, to handyman Willie Loomis, who informs Barnabas she claims to live at the Old House. As Elizabeth Collins Stoddard prepares to marry blackmailer Jason McGuire, she reveals a dark secret to governess Victoria Winters. Posing as an historian, Dr. Julia Hoffman arrives at Collinwood to investigate Maggie's disappearance.

I've been squinting and attempting to watch Dark Shadows on Netflix for the past couple of weeks. I thought the show was just normally really dark because of its age. Whenever you catch it by chance on the chiller channel its also very dark. To my amazement, this DVD set has extraordinary quality. Everything seems to be remastered and wow, it makes such a huge difference. The detail of the rooms in the houses is completely amazing, everything is lightened up which brings out all the great detail! This is a super nice set. I am sure all of the collection sections are just as good. I have ordered several now and have not watched them all yet, but my first impression of Dark Shadows on DVD from this collection is that it is just great and I am enjoying it so much more compared to Netflix or TV.

This set begins as Maggie is still being held captive by Barnabus who has tried to turn her into his long lost Josette. Meanwhile, Elizabeth is planning to marry the conniving Jason and her daughter, Carolyn is totally not happy with that arrangement because she smells a rat, so she is going off the deep end by becoming engaged to a biker named Buzz who begins to hang around Collinwood. Things progress from there and get really dicey. Maggie, who is being kept in the dungeon is seeing the ghost of a little girl from the past as she tries to figure out a way out of the dungeon in the old house. Willie as usual, is trying to keep the peace and keep everyone out of harms way. There are lots of great twists and turns throughout-some of them even Shocking!

If you are a Dark Shadows fan and have a renewed interest in watching the show with the new Dark Shadows in the theaters, or if you are a new fan, this remastered version is first rate and makes watching the show a delight.

Dr. Julia Hoffman: "Our mistake is thinking there are limits as to what can take place on this planet"

According to the Gothic Ethos of First and Last and Always, Beware: this is not Downton Abbey plus a decorous little vampire! "Dark Shadows" is something else altogether, for those with a taste for vintage gothic/horror. "Dark Shadows," celebrates distinct, goofy, macabre elements. It's a subversive phenomenon, a wonderfully campy, gothic epic, not a "soap." Rather, the series delves in a darkness flavored by film director Val Lewton's artistic sensibilities. "Dark Shadows" has a proclivity for Celtic darkness; after all, the Celts invented Samhain/Halloween, and gave us the Irish writer Bram Stoker, of the classic Dracula, as well as Scotland's Robert Louis Stevenson, of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, who inspired later DS plots. Perhaps DS's creator Dan Curtis was of that particular strain of Irish/Scottish heritage that favors long, dark nights enriched by spooky tales. Noir film director Fritz Lang was also an avid fan, having worked with the marvelous Joan Bennett; Dan Curtis was inspired in "Dark Shadows" by Lang's film, starring Bennett, Secret Beyond the Door.

I never missed one single episode back in the days when this was new. I worked as a bartender then and told my customers I was not serving for the time the show was on....somehow I got away with that. Purchasing the entire set for $400.00 is not an option for me, but buying one collection at a time works for me. This collection was in perfect shape and I loved it. Looking forward to the next one.

I had heard of DS for years. I recently watched the Johnny Depp movie of the same name. I didn't like it much, but it did inspire me to see if the original was available on DVD. I'm glad it did. I love it.

I wasn't a soap opera watcher until this.

Having to broadcast each day and with a limited amount of time with the equipment, the series had only one take to produce for every scene. There are slip-ups therefore, but you get used to that. I love the black and white.

When I try to describe why I like this so much, I can't figure out how.

This DVD includes scary moments, lots of suspense. Barnabus eventually begins to show some compassion. Dr. Julia Hoffman is introduced.

In Amazon, it is confusing which collection contains which episodes. Sometimes you can find the answers in the reviews. I look at the copies in the library. The episodes are listed on the back. This one contains episodes 251-290. Barnabus shows up in Episode 210, Collection One. There is a whole "The Beginning Series" with its own numbering. I think I watched #6, which is right before Collection One and 210. As I said, it's very confusing.
