Editorial Reviews

At the altar of the Leviathans, Barnabas Collins is attacked by a bat and is again a victim of the vampire curse. Dr. Julia Hoffman hopes to cure Barnabas by resuming her medical treatment of him through a series of injections. But Barnabas is unable to resist biting a new victim. Warlock Nicholas Blair returns and Angelique learns that both he and her husband, Sky Rumson, are aiding the Leviathans. Jealous of Barnabas' affection for Maggie Evans, Angelique casts a spell to make Quentin Collins and Maggie fall in love. Leviathan leader Jeb Hawkes summons an army of zombies to kidnap Julia, hoping she can make him human. Sabrina Stuart tries to protect her boyfriend Chris Jennings from the sinister Bruno, who has learned the identity of the werewolf. Barnabas is startled to discover a room in Collinwood's east which serves as a portal to a parallel universe.Bonuses: Exclusive interviews with actors Nancy Barrett, Christopher Pennock, Geoffrey Scott and soap opera journalist Michael Logan.

The 40 episodes in Dark Shadows Collection 19 includes the conclusion of the "beast" storyline, and the debut of a story arc dealing with the concept of parallel time that eventually involves the entire cast.

Dark Shadows, the only soap opera to have focused completely on gothic storylines and the supernatural, demonstrates its wide range in this boxed set with arguably one of its worst stories that will enventually transcend into one of its best. The "repertoire company" that is the cast of this remarkable show, consistently turns in memorable performances throughout.

The then young actor Christopher Pennock is introduced as Jeb Hawkes, the human form of the "beast," created to be the supernatural leader of the evil cult of the Leviathans. Pennock overplays much of this role, but eventually turns in a fairly memorable performance. Of all of the roles he would end up playing in the series, in my opinion, this was by far his best. (The actor is also interviewed in a special DVD feature, and comes off at best as egotistical and very peculiar.)

Hawkes' human half falls hopelessly in love with Carolyn Collins Stoddard, who as always, is played brilliantly by Nancy Barrett.

The Leviathan plan is to have the two wed in a dark arts ceremony performed by warlock Nicholas Blair, again played with menacing gusto by Humbert Allen Astredo. Carolyn was to become an inhuman creature like Jeb, and the two would rule over the Leviathans, whose ultimate goal was to rid the world of human beings, beginning with the residents of Collinsport.

Another great collection of 40 episodes from DARK SHADOWS (#942-981, Feb-Mar. 1970) that conclude the Jeb Hawkes story and begin the Parallel Time tale. I really enjoyed these episodes--Christopher Pennock is terrific as Jeb, making him more than just an evil jerk as his romance with Carolyn becomes far more serious. And the writers do a great job of slowly introducing the Parallel Time storyline as various characters go up to the east wing to check out the mysterious room, where their alter egos are living very different lives. It's fun to see Roger Collins watching himself and to discover dead characters suddenly returning to life in the other world. And speaking of dead characters, many bite the dust before the show switches over completely to Parallel Time. I won't give away any--that's half of the fun of the show, to see who will get bumped off. I will reveal that Barnabas' fangs return in gusto--which always makes things more interesting. But without the wonderful, talented cast--who take the campy storylines very seriously--DARK SHADOWS wouldn't be a cult classic. It's Jonathan Frid, Joan Bennett, David Selby, Grayson Hall, Louis Edmonds, Nancy Barrett, John Karlen, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker, Humbert Allen Astredo (who chews up the scenery as Nicholas Blair like nobody's business) and Marie Wallace (one of my favorite actresses on the show) who make this show such a joy to watch. So if you enjoy a good gothic mystery with a bit of supernatural intrigue--and the occasional werewolf, warlock, witch or vampire--then I recommend that you tune in to DARK SHADOWS. But beware--it's highly addictive!

I have always been a fan of Dark Shadows, ever since those days when I would run home to watch it after school in the 60's and 70's. The gothic theme, the spooky sets, and special effects set the standard for today's flicks. This show was a fun scare for teens everywhere. The show was clean (no foul language), not really violent (especially by today's standards), acting was good, and just plain fun! It is a shame that today's kids will never know the simplicity and joy of being scared in a fun way like we did.. All the blood, guts and cursing in today's shows will never endure the way the old shows do!

Yes, I was one of those young school girls who raced home to watch the latest episode, and I'm having a gas watching them all over again - surprised at how much I'd forgotten.

The bulk of this set of DVD's involves the Leviathan storyline, that of an ancient evil cult plotting to start a new race with the mating of their beast (Jeb Hawkes in human form) with Carolyn Stoddard, but there's a twist when Jeb finds himself in love with Carolyn and wants to stay human and marry her. Of course the Leviathans will have none of that and there are plenty of surprise twists, turns and returns from the past (I did not see that one coming). Nicholas Blair is back and right in the thick of things (yay!), as well as the always delightfully wicked Angelique bent on revenge - loved "The Shadow" storyline to bits, but I wouldn't let the younger kiddos watch that bit too close to bed. Nancy Barrett as Caroline Stoddard is superb as always and must be the best screamer in the business. Jonathan Frid is in top form as he's once again turned into a vampire and Julia's injections not only fail, but manage to increase his lust for blood...

And in the last DVD begins one of my favorite story-lines, that of parallel time, with a huge nod to Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca. Whilst searching the closed east wing of Collinwood, Barnabas opens a door, a door where the residents of Collinwood live very different lives. Quentin is the master of Collinwood, and after the mysterious death of his wife Angelique (who we only see via a portrait) has taken a young bride (Maggie Evans) and prepared to return after their whirlwind honeymoon.
