House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows Finally Hitting Blu-ray and DVD





Never mind the mind-numbing weirdness of Tim Burton's Johnny Depp flick, we're talking about the original goodies right here, kids. Read on for the first look at the DVD and Blu-ray releases of House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows!

Warner Home Video has announced DVD ($14.96 each) and Blu-ray ($19.98 each) releases of House of Dark Shadows (1970) and Night of Dark Shadows (1971) for October 30th. The only extra features will be the theatrical trailers.

In this film expansion, vampire Barnabas Collins searches for a cure so he can marry the lovely woman who resembles his long-lost fiancée, Josette.

Night of Dark Shadows, the sequel to House of Dark Shadows, centers on the story of Quentin Collins and his bride, Tracy, at the Collinwood Mansion in Collinsport, Maine. David Selby ("Dark Shadows", The Social Network, Inhale), Lara Parker (“Dark Shadows,” Race with the Devil), John Karlen (“Dark Shadows,” TV's “Cagney & Lacey”), Kate Jackson (TV’s “Scarecrow and Mrs. King,” “Charlie's Angels”), Grayson Hall (TV’s “One Life to Live,” “All My Children”), and Nancy Barrett (“Dark Shadows,” TV's “Ryan’s Hope”) star.

NEXT STORY

Nice covers, and good to see them finally making it onto DVD, but such a shame Warners have decided against releasing a restored version of Night of Dark Shadows with the scenes so hastily removed before the original release.
