Editorial Reviews

In the year 1897, Magda, the gypsy, hopes to end the werewolf curse she placed on Quentin Collins. She reveals to Barnabas Collins that she has gained possession of the magical hand of Count Petofi. After the Collins family learns that Barnabas is a vampire, he is forced into hiding. Scheming to gain control of the Collins wealth, Gregory Trask and Evan Hanley plot to drive matriarch Judith Collins insane by taunting her with the spirit of Minerva Trask.

Quentin enlists the aid of Angelique, the witch, to retrieve Petofi's hand from a mysterious stranger named Aristede. Once his identity is discovered, Petofi brings artist Charles Delaware Tate to Collinsport to paint a portrait of Quentin. During a full moon, Charity Trask witnesses the painting take on the appearance of the werewolf.

When Jamison Collins is possessed with the spirit of the dying David Collins from 1969, Count Petofi promises to save the boy if Barnabas reveals how to travel to the future.

Bonuses: Includes exclusive interviews with actors David Selby, Michael Stroka, Louis Edmonds and Donna McKechnie.

Starring: Jonathan Frid, Joan Bennett, David Selby, Nancy Barrett, Louis Edmonds, Kathryn Leigh Scott, David Henesy, Grayson Hall, Thayer David, Lara Parker, John Karlen, Clarice Blackburn, Jerry Lacy, Terry Crawford, Roger Davis, Don Briscoe, Denise Nickerson, Humbert Allen Astredo, Donna McKechnie, Michael Stroka, Kay Frye, Alex Stevens and Diana Davilla

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Storyline for a Tim Burton Sequel, IMO!! May 21, 2012
Format:DVD
The storyline shifts again for another interesting journey back through time... 1895 Collinwood. Here are the plot-lines where you learn Barnabus is actually a very caring, conscientious vampire! (Jonathan Frid, as Barnabus, became a prototype for Anne Rice's stories.) He manages to get beyond his own psychosis long enough to see the impact of his condition on his family.

Barnabus achieves time-travel through meditation on an I-Ching Hexagram; a very interesting technique! After the intrinsic possessions of the children (Collections 13-14) Barnabus decides he must decipher the history of the family and track Quentin Collins down. His intention is to learn how Quentin died and prevent the consequent illness of little David, in present-time... David, who is Jamieson, David's counterpart in the 1800's.

Even when the story seems obscure, the acting remains excellent and David Henesy is at his best and most cunning for such a young actor! Barnabus also looks great! It's in this storyline you will see how Frid became the study for Johnny Depp's Barnabus in the new 2012 movie. This would be a great area for Tim Burton to pick up a sequel, IMO!!

Quentin comes through as a sympathetic, sexual man. He is subject to manipulation because of his desire to claim his inheritance and be happy. Surrounded by forces he doesn't quite understand without the help of Barnabus, we get to know Quentin as a person here. With his struggle comes the inception of Magda, the gypsy, and the very occult (and disgusting) Hand of Petrofi... Which later takes "hold" of little Jamieson! (Super-funny acting by Henesy!) New, exotic personalities are attracted to Collinwood... A place which seems to bring out the worst in everyone!! Of course you have to wonder if they are all losing their minds.

It's amazing I'm the only one that seems to be displeased with MPI's shoddy packaging of the Dark Shadows series. I have had to send for replacements of my DVD sets countless times throughout the past couple of months. I don't like the way they cram the DVDs in frail holders which constantly has resulted in the tabs coming loose & falling in the case. The tabs which contain the DVDs are NOT secure & I've been discovering more & more that there are usually a couple of tabs missing.

I LOVE Dark Shadows & have been very pleased with the packaging & care put into collections 1-14. Unfortunately MPI seems to have laxed since then & have shown little regard for how they package & market these sets. The trouble had began with volume 15 onwards & I've been having trouble ever since. DVDs become dislodged & slide back & forth within the case due to their ever-broken holder tabs. I can't tell you how many discs have been badly scratched on account of this! This is NOT a result of the DVDs journey to me, it's most certainly due to MPI.

I read that Amazon had discontinued their line of volumes 1-8 from (Dark Shadows) *The Beginning* series for awhile (they've since started issuing them again) as customers complaints were very similar to mine of the inferior care put in to their DVD sets.

I'm very upset that MPI is cheap in their care of marketing these sets & felt compelled to pass my experience with this matter along to others who may be experiencing the same trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing villainy February 17, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
l cant speak for the previous critics, but the entrance of Count Petofi was mind blowing. Thayer David plays him with malicious intent. Seeing him square off with Barnabas, Angelique and Quentin is a pure treat. David Hennesy gets to showcase his talent as a possessed boy under Petofi's control. Definitely worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 1897 drama continues June 25, 2011
Format:DVD
Now widowed, Reverend Trask decides he's well suited to be master of Collinwood, and plots to drive the mistress nutty so he can have it all to himself. Barbabas is exposed as a vampire, and goes on the run. And in a last ditch attempt to find a cure to Quentin's curse, Magda the gypsy steals the Hand of Count Petofi - the hand not only doesn't cure Quentin, it begins causing havoc all over Collinwood, especially when the Count himself comes back to claim his hand. I'm not going to spoil by going further, but there's plenty of back stabbing, dirty deals, possessions along with a couple of forays into nuttiness, delightfully played by Louis Edmonds (Edward Collins) and Nancy Barrett (Charity Trask). Be warned, this set ends with a serious cliffhanger, so it might be wise to have the next set on hand and ready to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Shadows Collection 15 October 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have not watched this yet, only because I am watching the series in order from netflix, waiting on the disks from netflix, I will be watching this shortly. I am loving the entire series, and these are new and sealed, so I am sure they will be great. I am having to order the ones netflix does not have, which is the reason I bought this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! January 4, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched Dark Shadows as a kid and was intrigued with the series. There were many things on the show I didn't understand, but I continued to watch. One day my child-care provider introduced the series to me and I was hooked ever since. Never, had I known or seen the ending, so this is my chance to see it all over again with a more understanding of the series. Because of these DVDs, I was able to attend my first Dark Shadow Festival in Brooklyn, NY, the year before Jonathan Frid past. I got to meet Lara Parker, David Selby, Jerry Lacy, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Roger Davis, and many others because of these DVD's. Thanks Amazon.
