Summary: Barnabas Collins, the most famous Vampire since Dracula, returns in this feature film adaptation of the famed television series "Dark Shadows".
On the ancient estate of Collinwood, a caretaker searching for treasure opens an old sealed coffin. Soon the residents of Collinwood are shocked by a series of gruesome attacks in which all the victims have a bizarre wound in common - two deep holes on the side of their neck. As investigators search for the strange attacker, Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid) arrives at Collinwood, claiming to be a relative from England. Convinced of his authenticity, Roger Collins (Louis Edmonds) and his sister Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Joan Bennett) welcome Barnabas to Collinwood. When he meets the beautiful Maggie (Kathryn Leigh Scott) Barnabas is struck by her similarity to his lost love Josette. His passion resurrected, Barnabas begins to woo the young Maggie with the intention of making her his wife... for eternity.
