Dark Shadows

Today is the anniversary of the 1966 premier of the tv show Dark Shadows. I planned my after-school schedule around this show once I discovered it. I found it after Jonathan Frid joined the cast (episode 211) as everybody's favorite tormented vampire Barnabas Collins.

This is the opening theme:

There is talk of a 2011 film with Johnny Depp in the role Frid created.

  1. I loved Dark Shadows as a kid. I remember they even had collector cards of all the creepy characters. I don't know about casting Depp as Barnabas. He doesn't have mature enough features for my vision of the character. Of course the teen girls aren't going to swoon over a guy like Frid.
