i have yet to see this. i was trying to watch them all in order [well starting with the introduction of barnabas], which as you know is a huge undertaking. it sort of all fell apart a few months back. need to start it up again.

...but you can never go wrong with dark shadows.

rebecca you've been missed as well. hope to be back up to speed soon myself.

Thank you! Ive been watching the series for a second time these days since the first time I watched it I mostly listened to it while I worked. I have a vhs copy of the Night of the Dark Shadows film and have been looking for House of the DS for awhile and finally saw it online via Amazon on demand here for 2.99 rental http://www.amazon.com/House-of-Dark-Shadows/dp/B0012DP6L2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1248713552&sr=1-2
This one stands on its own so if you have never seen the series though it is a bit different.
We miss you Rebecca! xo!

Did the images come from the Amazon rental? They look terrific, much better than my dupey DVD-R.

Have you seen The Norliss Tapes? It's another Dan Curtis production, very similar to the Kolchak movies and TV show. Only the pilot episode got made, but they have it on Amazon and it's worth a watch.

I just posted a review of House of Dark Shadows on my website. You got better screen grabs. Mine look horrible.

I'm guessing that this still isn't on DVD anywhere, but why?
