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.
Kathryn Leigh Scott reported at the Dark Shadows Festival in Brooklyn (August 19-21, 2011) that she, Lara Parker, David Selby, and Jonathan Frid were treated "like royalty" when they arrived on-set for their cameos during the first week of July 2011, and that Johnny Depp walked up to Jonathan Frid and said, "None of this would be possible had it not been for you" referring to Frid's original portrayal of the Barnabas Collins role and its impact on the success of Dark Shadows (1966).
It is said that blood is thicker than water. It is what defines us, binds us... curses us.
When the police and townspeople rush to the Collins mansion, the crowd arrives seconds behind the police cars, even though they were all on foot.
There is a dedication in the closing credits: "To the memory of Dan Curtis".
