Description[edit | edit source]

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.

In 1897, Quentin Collins and servant Beth Chavez attempt to rescue Barnabas Collins from a chained coffin where he has been imprisoned by the devious Count Petofi. King Johnny Romano arrives in Collinsport with a gang of gypsies, seeking revenge against Magda for stealing the magical hand of Petofi. Artist Charles Delaware Tate sees Amanda Harris and is suprised to recognize her as the fantasy woman he has painted. Quentin is shocked to discover from a possessed Jamison Collins that Quentin's ghost is menacing Collinwood in the 20th century, causing David Collins to hover near death. Hoping to save Barnabas, Julia Hoffman conducts an I-Ching ceremony in 1969 and is transported back in time to 1897.

Starring: Jonathan Frid, David Selby, Lara Parker, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Louis Edmonds, David Henesy, Grayson Hall, Thayer David, Nancy Barrett, Roger Davis, Jerry Lacy, Denise Nickerson, Don Briscoe, Terry Crawford, Michael Stroka, Donna McKechnie, Henry Baker, Karen Lynn, Deborah Loomis and Paul Michael.
