Product Description

Woe unto young Victoria Winters, the new governess at Collinwood, the Collins family estate in (where else?) Collinsport, Maine. Her employers are a strange lot, and the arrival of cousin Barnabas from England, who just happens to be a guilt-ridden 175-year-old vampire, ratchets up the weirdness. These creepy, campy contrivances made this gothic mystery one of television's most popular daytime series from 1966 to 1971. DVD bonuses include new interviews with the actors and program creator, Dan Curtis. 14 hours on 8 cassettes or 4 DVDs; b&w.

From the Back Cover

With its alluring tales of Gothic mystery and supernatural intrigue, Dark Shadows became one of the most popular daytime series of all time. Since first airing on ABC-TV from 1966-71, Dark Shadows has earned the reputation of being one of the most unusual and enduring programs in television history. The character of Barnabas Collins, a guilt-ridden, 175-year-old vampire, brought the show tremendous success.

Released from his chained coffin after nearly 200 years, Barnabas Collins arrives at the Collinwood estate claiming to be a relative from England. Although noticing Barnabas's resemblance to his "ancestor" in the foyer portrait, the Collins family does not realize he is the same Barnabas who lived at Collinwood in the 18th century. As Barnabas moves into the Old House on the property, those around him are unaware of the horrors that will soon follow.

Contains: 40 complete, spine-tingling episodes. Bonuses: Special introductory Dark Shadows featurette and exclusive interviews with the actors. Starring: Joan Bennett, Jonathan Frid, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Louis Edmonds, Nancy Barrett, David Henesy, Clarice Blackburn, John Karlen, Mitchell Ryan, Dennis Patrick, Joel Crothers, David Ford, Dana Elcar, Robert Gerringer, and Alexandra Moltke. Black and white, approx. 15 hours.
