While there are sadly no bonus features in this 3 DVD set, it does not take away from the many hours ( 10 I believe) of intense viewing of the type of vampire movie that sadly, no longer exists. I give this DVD set 5 stars and challenge anyone to watch just 1 episode, and not get hooked on it. I did, and have watched it several times, and plan on buying more copies to give as gifts to friends and family. I am currently watching 2 episodes per week with my 26 year old daughter. She is greatly enjoying it as well.
BTW, for those who can't get enough of DS, do NOT bother with that disaster of an attempt at DS made in 2012. That was a joke...and a bad one at that. Ben Cross did the original Barnabas Collins of the 1960's and 70's show very proud. I applaud the entire cast of this show, and all who worked to produce it. Amazing Revival of an amazing show.
Ben Cross as a very convincing Barnabas Collins, Barbara Steele as Dr. Hoffman, the lovely Joana Going as Victoria, Jim Fyfe as Willie Loomis and Jean Simmons as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard give very strong performances. These actors also show up in the time travel episodes (1790s).
The 1991 remake is very reasonably priced and it is one of my prized DVD collections. I will forever remember Ben Cross as Barnabas. I have just started watching the 1960s original series and I marvel at the legendary Jonathan Frid as the original Barnabas, but Ben Cross is amazing as Barnabas. The cape, ring and the mesmerizing cane fit him to a tee. I am dumbstruck that he didn't receive the recognition he so richly deserved.
I highly recommend the 1991 remake and can't praise it enough.
This was my favorite show at the time. For anyone who is unfamiliar with the original or this remake the overly simple description of the show would be a soap opera with monsters. This show has it all, horror, drama, suspense, lust, greed, etc. Pretty much every human emotion is in this show. Ben Cross was excellent as Barnabas Collins. He was the original vampire with a conscience. Once you start watching it you'll be hooked and have to see every episode. The Gulf War was going on at the time and the show got lost in the ratings shuffle and sadly got dropped. It's not as intense as newer horror shows like the Walking Dead or American Horror Story but if you start watching you'll get sucked in.
