DVD Verdict
16 November 2012
  • Excerpt: When the Collins family groundskeeper accidentally unearths the body of centuries-old vampire Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid), everything in the Collins family goes up for grabs. Barnabas becomes infatuated with Maggie (Kathryn Leigh Scott, The Great Gatsby ), the family tutor who resembles a lost love, but he's also being threatened by Carolyn (Nancy Barrett), who has been turned into a vampire herself and is mad with jealousy.

House of Dark Shadows

High-Def Digest
8 November 2012
  • Conclusion: As a fan of the original television series, the original film version of 'Dark Shadows' is a poorly constructed attempt to capitalize on the gothic soap opera's popularity. With bad editing and directing which becomes cumbersome after some time, the story of vampire Barnabas search for a cure to his eternal curse turns into a bit of a chore towards the end of the second act, but decently saved by a grandiose finish.
