House of Dark Shadows (1970) Poster



The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Character error 

Despite the fact Barnabas has been imprisoned in a bound coffin for almost 200 years and has no knowledge of modern technology, he has no difficulty in operating a car door handle to get to his second victim (after Willy), ringing a doorbell without hesitation, and so on. This gaffe, which carried over from the TV series, was long a source of consternation among fans and was specifically addressed in the 2012 feature version by having Barnabas constantly react to the strangeness of life in the year 1972.
