Description by OLDIES.com:
With its alluring tales of Gothic mystery and supernatural intrigue, "Dark Shadows" become one of the most popular daytime series of all time. Since first airing on ABC-TV from 1966-71, "Dark Shadows" has earned the reputation as being one of the most unusual and enduring programs in television history. The character of Barnabas Collins, a guilt-ridden 175-year-old vampire, brought the show tremendous success.
Fearing for Victoria Winters' safety, Barnabas Collins forces her to reveal her nightmare resulting from Angelique's frightening dream curse, which threatens to make Barnabas once again a creature of the night. The man-made monster Adam kidnaps Victoria in an attempt to force Barnabas and Julia Hoffman to create a mate for him. Warlock Nicholas Blair causes Angelique to age and warns that he'll destroy her unless she returns the vampire curse to Barnabas. Nicholas becomes infatuated with Maggie Evans and causes her boyfriend to be the victim of a vampire attack. After ailing handyman Tom Jennings tries to warn Maggie of the danger surrounding them. Barnabas discovers fang marks on Julia's neck.
Originally a daytime soap opera, DARK SHADOWS garnered a huge cult following during its original 1966-1971 run and separated itself from its peers by dealing with increasingly bizarre and daring story lines. Covering episodes 534-574 in the series, this 4-disc set continues the saga of Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid), a 200-year-old vampire living on his family's manor estate in Collinsport, Maine.
