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 from 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.
