Dark Shadows Just A Classic

"Even after 40 years you can't kill Dark Shadows and its wonder why It hold a true hold over every one of us that would run home after school and see it on ABC TV at 4PM.So popular was the show that stores could not keep there bubblegum trading cards packs in stock.Right next to Bingham School here in Runnemede there was a little store named Chris's and the store owner would hold packs for My Friend Linda Difranco and Myself and we would spend all our money and buy up every pack.I'm so glad MPI has kept this fantastic series alive with new retrospectives like these and new interviews.Because we lived in New Jersey we could not go up like kids that lived in NY and stand outside the studios during the original filming of the Dark Shadows TV Series,But in retrospect I wish Linda and I could have went up there and met the actors in the day,what classic pictures they would have been.When I see shows like True Blood on HBO I cringe as they cant hold a candle to the original Dark Shadows.The actors Jonathan Frid,Kathreen Lee Scott,Lara Parker and others they might have messed up there lines among other goofs on the show but boy are they forever in our minds and hearts,something kids today with never no about.

DARK SHADOWS THE VAMPIRE CURSE by Dan Silvio

"DARK SHADOWS:THE VAMPIRE CURSE released from MPI on Sept 15,2009.
This DVD is an edited edition of episodes from the 1795 storyline. If you have the unedited VHS or DVD's this is hardly worth the money. Bonus material is the complete episode #221 in which Maggie Evans meets Barnabas Collins at the Collinsport Inn restaurant. The program originally aired 5/2/1967 written by Ron Sproat directed by John Sedwick, a PBS promo from Kathryn Leigh Scott and an interview with Jonathan Frid. (210 minutes)

"I purchased this video and was very pleased. They have condensed the entire 1700's Barnabas becomes a Vampire story line with Josette and Angelique quite well. This video is worth a look.
Quality was very good in these transfers. Too bad the second DVD in this series wasn't as good. (The Quentin Collins Ghost Story).
I look foward to future condensed story lines if they are released."
