4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating shadow of what might have been 1 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's well known that Night Of Dark Shadows suffered extensively from pre-release cutting, and those cuts severely compromised the film. The storyline became confusing, and the editing looked choppy in places. However in spite of these drawbacks, this follow on from House Of Dark Shadows - it's not really a sequel in the conventional sense - remains worthwhile, both for fans of director Dan Curtis' original Dark Shadows TV series, and casual viewers.

One obvious aspect that causes disappointment is the absence of Barnabas Collins. Actor Jonathan Frid had refused to play the vampire again through fears of typecasting, so Curtis was forced to take a different tack. Night focuses on Quentin Collins and his wife Tracy as they inherit the Collinwood estate. Slowly, the couple become aware of the malevolent spirit of Angelique, a witch hanged 200 years ago, and Quentin is posessed by the spirit of his own ancestor, Angelique's lover. The films lacks the blood and thunder of it's predecessor, opting instead for a slow, brooding build up of menace and a surprisingly dark tone of sexual violence in some scenes.

Hopefully, one day the cut footage will be restored, but in the meantime this flawed gem is more deserving of it's place on your shelf next to House Of Dark Shadows than Tim Burton's new movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars night of the dark shadows review 8 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
new blood comes home to Collinwood house. it stars David Selby as Quentin Collins and Kate Jackson as his bride her first staring role. When Quentin and his bride move into his ancestral home he begins to have strange and violent visions of the past in his dreams he sees one of his family member being hanged for being a witch. The witch comes to him in his dreams because Quentin looks like her lost long love. more of supernatural tale .than full blooded horror

3.0 out of 5 stars what the heck is this? 27 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not having seen the othjer episodes of the dark shadows adventures i found this a little boring,not up to the standared of the previous motion picture presentation "The house of dark shadows"and a little slow for this type of movie,i still do not know or in fact really care about the plot line what ever that is,i felt like an outsider to a big franchise that we did not have here in old blighty,yeh we had "Emerdale farm" as a soap they had "Dark shadows".
If you are a fan you will like it im sure,if not avoid,go watch The original movie,yeh folks even has vampires in it,or best of all retry the old Hammer classics,old blighty knew how to do Vampires,werewolfs,and all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Back To Creepy Collinwood! 5 Jun 2004
By Joe - Published on
Verified Purchase
'Night of Dark Shadows' is the second of the two Dark Shadows motion pictures. At the time of it's release, this one didn't do quite as well as the first, but over the years, it has developed a strong cult following, and looks very good on repeated viewings.
What always impressed me about 'Night of Dark Shadows' was it's subtlety. 'House of Dark Shadows' was fast, loud and very "in your face." 'Night of Dark Shadows' is quiet in comparison -- the music is lush and softer, and the pace is quite relaxed at times. However, what emerges is an underlying sense of dread which intensifies throughout the course of the film (similar to Dan Curtis' 'Burnt Offerings' from 1976). This makes the shocks and scares even more jarring, and by the end of the film, the audience is left feeling bewitched, bothered and bewildered!
It's also important to mention David Selby, who turns in an excellent performance as Quentin Collins. His moodswings and erratic behavior (sensitive one minute and vicious the next), leave us as confused as Kate Jackson's character is.
Hopefully, both 'Night of Dark Shadows' and 'House of Dark Shadows' will be released on DVD soon, with the additional footage that was removed from the films before their respective theatrical releases. As for now, both films are highly recommended to anyone who enjoyed the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as House of Dark Shadows, but still creepy! 9 Jan 2003
By David Waters - Published on
In this, the second of two Dark Shadows movies spawned from the cult classic immortal TV series, storylines and character traits from the show are forgotten and a completely original story unravels. Whereas the original, House of Dark Shadows, capitalized on the popularity of the character of Barnabas Collins, this movie showcases the characters of Quentin Collins and Angelique. Unlike the original, this movie is NOT a vampire story, but rather a ghost story of mystery and intrigue. The result is an eery haunting tale of betrayal, murder, reincarnation, and ghostly possession.
Note to all fans of Barnabas or vampires in general, Jonathan Frid is NO WHERE to be seen here, as he declined to appear in any more Dark Shadows movies due to his being typecast. However, David Selby is back from the show as Quentin and gives a great performance. The beautiful ladies Kate Jackson (Tracy Collins) and Lara Parker (Angelique) are also great here. John Karlen and Nancy Barrett, fan favorites from the show, make appearances as well. Its a great ensemble cast that Dark Shadows fans will love.

It is important to bear in mind though, that Dan Curtis was forced at the last minute by the studio to edit the film from over 2 hours to 90 minutes in just 24 hours' time. Thus the rough cut film may be confusing, as several key scenes were forced out of the movie. However, the film is currently being restored to its original director's cut and will be coming to DVD in a few years. Till then, enjoy the film as it is. Dark Shadows lives on!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Liked It..... 9 Aug 2001
By Tome Raider - Published on
I'm actually quite suprised to see all the criticisms of this movie. I feel obligated to briefly respond in its defense. I've been going through a phase (for reasons unknown) where my wife and I are almost exclusively renting horror videos. We saw this movie last night and I found it very scary and filled with a particular atmospheric that seems to only come from movies from the 60's and early 70's. There's something dated about the style, but it is also classic.
In this genre my favorites would be: "The Haunting" (the original); "The Legend of Hell House"; "Burnt Offerings" (starring Karen Black); "Phantasm" (albeit that's from 1978). I supppose the common denominator is that they are all of the haunted house motif. I mention these movies because I thought the "Night of the Dark Shadows" fit in with them quite well. I do agree that the editing was a little rough, but I didn't find it to detract in any major way. The atmosphere, however, was a very seductive and bizarre mix of gothic/mod sexuality and occult mysticism. There wasn't a tremendous amount of explicit violence, but the overall vibe was heavy enough that I didn't want my two year-old daughter in the room while it was playing. The music was effectively corresponding to the developments in the movie--I'd buy the avant-garde soundtrack in a heartbeat. And, I agree that actress Lara Parker was enchanting. I'd like to find that painting of her which so captivated Kate Jackson's husband! The rest of the cast was also excellent; I even overcame my prejudice against Kate Jackson for her later Charlie's Angels contribution as she was sweetness personified in this and very compelling.
Overall, I definitely got the "buzz" I was seeking from this and any "horror" movie. It's true supernatural macabre without any innocent explanations. The feeling of the movie has stayed with me since I watched it 20 hours ago. I will follow the recommendations of others and seek out the "House of the Dark Shadows."

5.0 out of 5 stars Angelique is in the house! 29 April 2003
By James McDonald - Published on
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars AS good a sequel as the filmmakers could have done. 13 Sep 2000
By chad edwards - Published on
In this creepy, atmospheric sequel to "House of Dark Shadows", Quentin Collins(David Selby), the last of the surviving Collins clan, moves into the Gothic Collinwood estate with his beautiful young bride, Tracy(Kate Jackson) only to discover that the place is a breeding-ground for the supernatural. This leads to several encounters with a captivating 18th-century witch, Angelique(Lara Parker) who makes married life very difficult for the frightened duo to say the least. Admittedly, the film can't hold a candle to its predecessor(any technical problems the film has is due to the fact that it was cut to ribbons before finally being released), but this is probably as good a sequel as the filmmakers could have come up with after the stunning "House of Dark Shadows". Like the original, the film features a number of the series players, including Selby and Jackson in their film debuts, and boasts some truly striking Gothic atmosphere. Rumor has it that the missing footage from "Night of Dark Shadows" is in the process of being restored, and should be released, hopefully, by the end of next year.
