PG-13 | | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror
An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection.
The opening credits "follow" the Amtrak train.
It is said that blood is thicker than water. It is what defines us, binds us... curses us.
The architectural style, detailing and furnishing (e.g. a piano) of Collinswood - which Barnabas and Angelique recognize from c. 1776 - are wildly out of character for that period, and characteristic of the mid- to late-19th century, rather than the 18th.
There is a dedication in the closing credits: "To the memory of Dan Curtis".
