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 1841 parallel time, Daphne Harridge becomes suicidal at the thought of losing Bramwell Collins to her sister [[Catherine Harridge|Catherine]. James Forsythe's spirit reveals why he cursed the Collinses in 1680. The ghost of Brutus Collins traps Morgan Collins and Julia Collins in a secret corridor at Collinwood where they find two mummified bodies. After marrying Kendrick Young, Melanie Collins becomes insane. Morgan is enraged to learn Catherine and Bramwell have resumed their romance. As crises continue to surround them, the Collins family struggle to survive, hoping to finally end the curse that has brought so much sorrow.

This DVD set presents the final episodes of the series plus many hours of bonus material.

Starring: Jonathan Frid, Joan Bennett, David Selby, Lara Parker, John Karlen, Grayson Hall, Louis Edmonds, Nancy Barrett, Keith Prentice, Kate Jackson, Christopher Pennock, Kathy Cody and Thayer David.
