The creation of legendary producer Dan Curtis, Dark Shadows tells the tragic tale of the Collins family, a seemingly white lace patriarchal DYNASTY that ran a dark New England town out of their family estate, appropriately called Collinwood. Into this world enters young nanny Victoria (Alexandra Moltke), who soon learns there is a lot more to this family than initially meets the eye. Mysterious relative Barnabas (Jonathan Frid), moves into the dilapidated estate next door. Soon the household is beset with all manners of classic monsters, including werewolves, witches and ghosts.Since first airing on ABC-TV from 1966-71, the soap opera found its own unique place in TV immortality that had fans running home from school to catch each episode. With its alluring tales of Gothic mystery and supernatural intrigue, Dark Shadowsearned the reputation as being one of the most unusual and enduring programs in broadcasting history. Now, viewers can relive the thrills and chills every weeknight on DECADES.Mixing together high camp and gothic horror into the moribund soap formula, Dark Shadows quickly gathered a fanatical audience so large that TV Guide called the series one of the 25 greatest cult shows of all time (5/26/2014).
