Dark Shadows DVD Collection 12

When Barnabas sees a mysterious photograph with a silhouette of Victoria Winters hanging from the gallows, he decides he must go back in time to the year 1796 to save her. He attempts to change the course of history, but his efforts are threatened with the appearance of Angelique, the witch. Once again, Barnabas finds himself a victim of the vampire curse.

In 1969, Carolyn Stoddard invites Chris Jennings to move into the caretaker’s cottage on the Collinwood estate, unaware that he is harboring a dark and deadly secret. Soon afterwards, a werewolf attacks Carolyn in the woods. Meanwhile, Maggie Evans searches for David Collins in the abandoned west wing of Collinwood and is terrified to discover the ghost of Quentin Collins. Professor Stokes is summoned to exorcise the haunted mansion and the Collins family is forced to abandon the estate.

Bonuses: Exclusive interviews with actors Jonathan Frid, Denise Nickerson, cameraman Stuart Goodman and former network publicist Les Schecter.

With the 12th DVD set, things start to heat up. The story arc leading to the 1897 tale is underway, but in the meantime, Barnabas takes a short detour to 1795 to try to save Victoria from the hangman. A lot of the re-telling is the same script as earlier in the series, however, the production values are MUCH better. The sets are dimly lit with candles lending flavor to what we have seen before. Jonathan Frid is allowed to stretch his performance and the few episodes back in time are classic. Even with a substitute Victoria, the shows are excellent. Thayer David is a personal favorite as Ben Stokes.
Also, David Henesy is surprisingly evil, being controlled by the ghost of Quentin. Can't wait for the next set!

Yes they are corney, yes they have some really bad acting (along with some good stuff), but who cares? Its Dark Shadows. The show we used to run home from school to watch every afternoon. For some of us, it was quite a run. Maybe if our kids today did the same running, they wouldn't be so rotund and glued to their video games. There is Barnabus, the vampire with a guilt complex. Quentin, the werewolf who was and is scarrier than Jack Nicholson having a bad hair day. Sister Sarah as a 8 year old ghost stuck in a void between life and death. Then you have the abnormal family members (the above mentioned ones were the normal ones), whose various characters lend a good chuckle as props fall around them. They frequently flub their lines and are often seen reading directly from the teleprompter. Doors would be heard slamming in the background and the child actors frequently forgot their lines alltogether. Sometimes I wonder about the sobriety of some of the camera operators back then. But what the heck, it scared the beejeebers out of us as kids. The best part, is, it's alot better than 90% of the crap they have on today (i.e. reality shows), and given how many episodes there are, you can never run out of something different to watch. Plus the best extra bonus, our kids hate this stuff, and we can finally have some time alone to ourselves if front of our beloved boxes. I recommend starting at the beginning (vol 1) and only watching 2-3 episodes at a time. I only hope that MCI can one day find the copies of the first year (pre-Barnabus) to complete the set. I also hope that one day, the movies House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows will be released on DVD (right now they are only out on VHS). Besides, there are over 40 episodes and special features per set. This is only about $1.00 per episode to own and enjoy forever (alike the eternal Barnabus).

Format: DVD
As someone who is watching the show for the first time, I've felt it's been in something of a slump ever since Victoria returned from 1795 and the Adam storyline began. Robert Rodan did what he could with the Adam character but the Frankenstein plot bordered on the ridiculous at times. This sequence was rescued primarily by the performance of Humbert Allen Astredo, one of the better actors to appear on the show, as Nicholas Blair.

Now things are picking up again, with the journey back to 1897 just around the corner and the surprisingly complex Quentin Collins plot. I have mixed feelings about Don Briscoe, who plays Chris Jennings, and the less we see of Roger Davis the better... but the show is finally getting back to that "can't put it down" pace that keeps me watching three to six episodes at a sitting.

And it gets even better in the next set!

Not only does this show take me back to being a kid again, it holds up well against the so-called horror genre of today - faulty camera work and blown lines aside. I hardly finish watching one DVD set before I start getting anxious for the next. And no, I don't go to conventions nor dress like a vampire. But it can be greatly enjoyed as the "guilty pleasure" portion of a balanced life. And since Quentin was introduced in the storyline last set, this one is poised to really heat up. They just keep getting better.

I watched this series after school every day when I was a kid and it was my "fun time" then. It is still just as fun and brings back great memories of my childhood. The videos have some damage but the studio tells you right up front that they decided not to cut any of the original film and the damage was in the original. So, it's worth the glitches to have the whole series, just as it was broadcast, without commercials!!

I must say for the record that the creators of these DVD sets have done an excellent job of it...
This set No. 11, and, all the sets I'ver purchased of Dark Shadows-the original series was well thought out, well made, and, copies are clean. I like the fact that they did not edit out the original mistakes inherent when the show was originally broadcast between 1966, and, 1971.

I also enjoyed the interviews with the different actors, and, producers of this gothic horror classic. Dan Curtis, and, all the fine actors, and, actresses should be proud of the excellent job they did.
From the time the show first started through the time that Johnathan Frid joined as Barnabas, on to others who later joined the series, this classic soap opera of horror, ghosts, witches, vampires, demons, and, just plain evil doers keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I really enjoy the original story of Quentin Collins's ghost.
I just can't speak highly enough of the series. I used to really enjoy it.
I am pleased to see they retainned all the original mistakes, mis-cues, etc...
I just can't say enough of my reccommendation of Dark Shadows to both original, and, new fans....
