Dragomir 'Gidra' Bojanic,
This was originally intended to to be a sequel to House of Dark Shadows (1970), and was to star Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid). Frid however turned down the role as he feared being typecast as Barnabas, so "Dark Shadows" creators Dan Curtis and Sam Hall made a new story which starred Quentin Collins and was based on the "Parallel Time" saga of the show (an alternate version of the story).

NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS has a bad reputation because of its plotline that strays from the vampire theme and because it is somewhat confusing. Many fans of the original series weren't fans of it in its early years before Barnabas Collins, when the plotline centered on Gothic hauntings like this movie. Thankfully, today many people (some not even fans of the original series) see the actual merit of the film. It is a very beautifully shot film, the acting is all perfect (my favorite is Kate Jackson), and even though so many scenes were cut out of the film, the film is still fun to watch and gives a few jolts here and there. The overall Gothic feel of the movie is more prevalent than its predecessor, HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS, and this movie actually is more in-depth and psychological in its plotline. The ending is sort of a let-down, but doesn't ruin the final impact of the film. Hopefully someday someone can unearth the cut 40+ minutes and release it intact on video!
