Editorial Reviews

In 1795, after being convicted of witchcraft, Victoria Winters waits to be hanged at the gallows. Peter Bradford vows they'll be together again someday. In 1968, Victoria reappears during a s+ªance at Collinwood and Barnabas fears that she has learned his secret from her time in the past. After he and Victoria are hospitalized following a car accident, Barnabas is stunned when the mysterious Dr. Lang enables him to see daylight for the first time in nearly 200 years. The doctor offers Barnabas hope that he may be permanently cured through a bizarre experiment. Roger Collins surprises the family by introducing his new wife Cassandra, whom Barnabas realizes is actually Angelique, the witch who cursed him as a vampire in 1795.

I love Dark Shadows, and Collection 7 contains some of my favorite episodes from the 5 year series. Ever since it was announced that the series was coming out on DVD, I had been looking forward to this set very much.
Victoria Winters returns from her inexplicable journey into the year 1795, and from the minute she re-appears, very strange events begin to occur at Collinwood. Victoria unexplainably purchases a portrait of the evil Angelique. A man with a striking resemblence to Peter Bradford enters her life suddenly. Roger begins to think he's Joshua Collins, then disappears in the middle of the night, only to return later, horrifying his family with announcement of a new wife, Cassandra (Angelique with a black wig).
Other memorable highlights from Collection 7 include:
-- Barnabas' reaction to the portrait of Angelique and what happens when he tries to destoy it.
-- Cassandra/Angelique's dream curse which terrifies a whole string of people, most notably Maggie Evans.
-- Dr. Eric Lang exposing Barnabas to daylight for the first time in 200 years.
-- The introduction of Julia Hoffman's radical haircut, which Barnabas and Victoria both comment on.
-- And most important for John Karlen fans -- the return of Willie Loomis after a long absence!
There's some great episodes here, and some outstanding performances, especially from Jonathan Frid and Louis Edmonds. Sink your teeth in and enjoy!

The 1795 Flashback wraps up in Collection 7 (VHS Volumes 45-52). In 1795, Nathan Forbes discovers Barnbas Collins' secret and plans to kill him, however Barnabas strangles him before he does. Joshua Collins then chains him up in his coffin, thinking he will never be released. Victoria Winters is hung and she returns to the present. In 1968, Barnabas fears that she has learned his secret and he bites her. After Victoria agrees to go away with Barnabas, they are involved in a car accident that leaves them both hospitalized. Barnabas is treated by the mysterious Dr. Eric Lang, who allows him to see sunlight for the first time in almost 200 years. Lang offers to permanetly cure Barnabas through a bizarre experiment where he will transfer his life force into another body. Roger Collins returns to Collinwood after some time away and introduces his new wife Cassandra Collins, whom Barnabas and Victoria realize is actually Angelique, the witch from 1795. In a dream Cassandra vows to return the curse to Barnabas. She eventually kills Dr. Lang, but the experiment is performed and the man-made creature Adam comes to life.
Overall I thought these episodes were good, but not as good as 1795. They just don't seem "scary" enough. But still good nonetheless.
Bonuses include interviews with Nancy Barrett, Kathryn Leigh Scott, director Lela Swift, and photographer Ben Martin.

Victoria Winters returns from the past to be haunted by vague memories of the horrors sustained by the Collins family. This set introduces a "mad scientist" like doctor who promises to help Barnabus where Julia Hoffman failed, but does he also have his own evil hidden agenda?

The variation in story line provided by this set breathes a breath of freshness into the series. It is a well needed change that fans of the show will enjoy.

I do love this retro series Dark Shadows and I used to watch with my Mom when I came home from grade school! Was in love with it then, and now I am watching and loving it more. I've been purchasing this DVD Series weekly in collections. So now I am at this Collection 7 and it appears that Collinsport has gone off it's collective rocker. Even if I should happen to make a somewhat negative comment, please do not take it that I am unhappy about it. I love it, without doubt.

Seeing the series again after all of these years, many parts I do not remember and am seeing this in a new light. I appreciate the incredible acting from each character. It really is quite something to see.

I adore the Barnabus vampire storyline. I have hated him, I have loved him, I have admired him too. I love the highly animated Dr. Julia Hoffman and the ever loyal and true Vicky and the nervous wreck Maggy, the beautiful Mrs. Stoddard and the quirky Roger.

In this series we see it all. The witch Angelique comes back and is wreaking havoc in present day Collingwood. Roger has gone a "little" insane thanks to his new wife Angelique. Barnabus is a live human being and showing all of the signs of love and compassion and chivalry in taking care of Julia. He even reveals that he knows that she loves him. I love Dr. Stokes too and the Humphrey Bogart lookalike Jerry Lacy. What more can I ask for???

I think the introduction of Dr. Lang and Adam is what I disagree with, because Dark Shadows went from something supernatural to some kind of crazy Frankenstein format. Even so, I am beginning to like Adam. He has become almost like the adopted child of Julia and Barnabus. It sounds crazy, I know, but watch it and you too will love it and want more and more!

Each collection in the series can run 13 hours and I go through them easily in a few days. Love the commentaries of the actors and directors at the end of each DVD. I treasure these DVDs.

DARK SHADOWS is the cult classic soap opera, famous for the 175-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins, a sympathetic villain who becomes a dark hero. A major step in this transformation is the 1795 storyline, which presents a human Barnabas cursed by the witch Angelique. The curse now reaches the pinnacle of its cruelty. It's driven Barnabas's true love Josette to suicide; now it does the same for Barnabas's mother Naomi. Not only does Barnabas lose his mother, he knows she died because she knew what he was.

In #460, there's an attempt to resolve the discrepancies between what happened in 1795 and what we expected -- discrepancies resulting from Anthony George leaving the show. Barnabas's father Joshua resolves to expunge the horrors that have befallen the Collins family from all written histories. Alas, that doesn't cover the present-day Barnabas's accounts of his past, particularly his speech to Julia Hoffman in #345 (set 4).

Joshua promises to end Angelique's curse by shooting Barnabas with a silver bullet during the day. But Joshua breaks that promise, IMHO because of his arrogance and egotism; he can't stand to have his own legacy destroyed, regardless of where that leave Barnabas -- which is trapped in his coffin until Willie Loomis accidentally releases him 175 years later and 250 episodes earlier. After so much suffering, it's understandable that present-day Barnabas is angry, vengeful, and cruel.

BTW, it might be interesting to watch the 1795 episodes before watching DS from the beginning, so you can judge present-day Barnabas's actions in light of what he's suffered.

Vctoria Winters, who took us to the past, now returns us to the present when she's hanged for witchcraft and the gallows serves as a time machine.
