Dark Shadows: DVD Collection 5
With its alluring tales of Gothic mystery and supernatural intrigue, Dark Shadows became 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.
In 1795, the beautiful and jealous witch Angelique attempts to destroy Baranabas' romance with his fiancÃ©, Josette DuPress. She enslaves Collins family servant Ben Stokes to assist her evil plans. Abigail Collins and Natalie DuPress find evidence they believe proves Victoria Winters is a witch. The family moves into the newly-built Collinwood mansion and the fanatical witch-hunting Reverend Trask is summoned to exorcise the Old House. A vengeful Angelique places a vampire curse on Barnabas.
