Did You Know?


Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, and Michelle Pfeiffer were fans of the original Dark Shadows (1966), having watched it when they were young.


Barnabas Collins: It is said that blood is thicker than water. It is what defines us, binds us... curses us.


Barnabas attacks a television during a live performance of The Carpenters singing "Top of the World." The song was originally released in 1972, on the album "A Song For You," but it wasn't released as a single or performed before a television audience until 1973.
