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.
While driving in the Collinsport village, Barnabas Collins accidentally hits a stranger in the road. He recognizes that the man is identical to Quentin Collins from 1897. Paul Stoddard becomes frantic when he realizes that the Leviathans want to claim the soul of his daughter Carolyn due to an agreement he made when she was a child. He discovers that the young boy living at the antique shop is a member of the other-worldly race. Dr. Julia Hoffman's investigations to find a cure for Chris Jennings' werewolf curse lead her to the elderly artist Charles Delaware Tate. After revealing that she is really Amanda Harris from 1897, Olivia Corey tries to help Quentin regain his memory. While searching for Quentin's mystical portrait, Julia meets art collector Sky Rumson and learns he is married to Angelique the witch. Barnabas begs Angelique for her supernatural help to overthrow the Leviathans.

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. The central figure was the tortured vampire Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid), who was part of a family around which strange events seemed to circulate. VOLUME 18 of the series, which ran for a half-hour every day from 1971 to 1975, contains 840 minutes worth of episodes. Plot lines include everything from amnesia, werewolves, and witchcraft, to the supernatural and extraterrestrials!
