Barnabas Collins is a vampire who was chained in his coffin 200 years ago - now he's free and returns to Collinwood, the ancestral home. Here he meets a young lady called Maggie Evans, who he believes to be a reincarnation of his lost love, Josette. Barnabas' undead nature is suspected by a couple of scientists, one of whom falls in love with him and tries to cure his vampirism. She succeeds, but when she realises that Barnabas is only interested in Maggie, she betrays him - with horrific consequences.
Faithful to the series, but expanding his canvas with widescreen photography, lavish sets and exteriors, and the kind of bloody violence (for it's time) that was out of the question on the TV show, Curtis has fashioned a most entertaining modern day vampire movie.
Incidentally, the product details on Amazon say it's 4:3 and 1.33:1, but happily this is incorrect. It's a solid 16:9 anamorphic transfer.
It's pretty dated, so don't expect modern effects or production values, but it's a lot of fun.
However, as a stand alone movie in its own right 'House of Dark Shadows' works very well and keeps its finger on the pulse in all the right places with some memorable imagery too. A nice edition to any Blu-ray horror collection and yes I can confirm that this American Blu-ray disc will play on your Region B coded player. Snap it up whilst you can. Rejoice, night creatures!
