An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection.
A 33-foot-high miniature of Collinwood Mansion was constructed, measuring 1/3 in scale to the actual set of the Mansion.
It is said that blood is thicker than water. It is what defines us, binds us... curses us.
Barry White's "You're the First, the Last, My Everything" was not released until 1974.
The opening credits feature Victoria Winters en route to Collinwood, repeating her name to herself ("My name is Victoria Winters..."), while the prologue featured a shot of waves breaking onto a cliffshore. This is a reverse of the Dark Shadows (1966) opening, where the prologue featured Victoria Winters traveling and the title sequence was of the waves breaking upon seashore scree.
