Atmospheric Horror!
29 October 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

DARK SHADOWS is a definite "must" for any horror fans to view. I enjoyed every episode and looked forward to each one. The cast is filled with excellent performances, especially from Barbara Steele and Ben Cross. I never did see the old series, but can only say that according to my taste this was really enjoyable horror made with much style. It does not happen very often nowadays that there are given so much attention to style over gore. DARK SHADOWS has a definite "old fashion" look and some would perhaps think this outdated. I realized watching this TV-series that I was pulled into the story line and the characters as each actors pulled off the story with much believability. Vampires, demons, ghosts....they are all here....each driven by the love and passion that made them what they became. That I liked very much about this series. The set designs and customs are very detailed and atmospheric,excellent lighting. If you see all the episodes in one day, there will be definite repeats in sounds effects, dark shadows and thunder/lightning, but this is so typical of the horror genre. Too bad the series did not continue. In my view...and I have seen thousands of horror films, old and new, this is a definite 8 out of 10 stars in my book.
