Night of Dark Shadows will be released on DVD and Blu-ray, October 30, 2012.
This is a follow-up movie filmed after House of Dark Shadows (1970) and filmed while the original ABC Network soap opera "Dark Shadows" (1966-1971) was still on television. This film was released during the last year of the original Dark Shadows serial. This film is my personal "Dark Shadows" favorite. It is the best and is more engrossing. Kate Jackson's performance is unforgettable.
Lara Parker is so memorable in her role as "Angelique" as she was on the original tv serial. Dark Shadows DVD Collection 1 As a child, I simply could not watch "Angelique". She gave me the willies and her eyes were perhaps hypnotizing. However, now I am an adult. I can sit and watch these "Dark Shadows" episodes with no problem. I think Miss Lara Parker is lovely.
All the main cast in this movie was also in the ABC Network "Dark Shadows" serial. David Selby, Kate Jackson, Grayson Hall, John Karlen, Lara Parker, Nancy Barrett, Jim Storm, Thayer David, Christopher Pennock, Diana Millay and Clarice Blackburn. I will not explain the plot of the film. This one should be a surprise to all gothic movie lovers. Quite sexy though. And you'll like Grayson Hall's 1960's dresses. Location: Lyndhurst Estate, Tarrytown, New York overlooking the Hudson River.
