Remake of 

Dark Shadows (1966) (TV Series)


Nosferatu (1922)
Barnabas rises out of the coffin like Nosferatu's iconic rising scene.
Dracula (1931)
Barnabas copies Dracula's style of persuading people to talk
A Summer Place (1959)
Theme music used in harbour-scene at Collinport
The Omega Man (1971)
'Theme from a Summer Place' is played whilst Robert Neville is driving a red convertible. Same music is playing whilst Angelique Bouchard is driving her red convertible through Collinsport.
Dracula A.D. 1972 (1972)
Poster featured outside the movie theater
Deliverance (1972)
Title seen on cinema marquee
Super Fly (1972)
Title seen on movie theatre marquee.
The Exorcist (1973)
Angelique vomits green pea soup all over Barnabas.
Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985)
Maggie creates her alias the way the fortune teller created the "Alamo in the basement" excuse.
Batman (1989)
In both Tim Burton films, the guy screams: "What are you?" at the title character.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
When the evil witch is being shot at by the mom she moves in the same way as the T-1000 does when it gets shot by Sarah Connor.
Batman Returns (1992)
Carolyn sarcastically "woofs" at Elizabeth (Michelle Pfeiffer) in much the same way Pfeiffer sarcastically "meows" in the earlier Tim Burton film.
Dracula (1992)
The shot in the intro where the doors to the castle are opened and we see the people is identical to a shot in "Bram Stoker's Dracula"'s intro. The whole motif and subplot of a vampire meeting a reincarnation of a former lover that jumped to her death, is identical.
Big Fish (2003)
Angelique mentions a "big fish", another Tim Burton title.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
Barnabas wears a purple coat much like Willy Wonka
