    ‘NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS,’ originally released in 1971, is the second film incarnation of the ‘Dark Shadows’ TV series. Produced and Directed by series creator Dan Curtis, ‘NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS’ stars series regulars, David Selby, Kate Jackson, Lara Parker, Nancy Barrett, Grayson Hall, John Karlen, Diana Millay and Chris Pennock in a tale of haunted houses and ghostly possession in New England. The screenplay is by Sam Hall. The legendary daytime drama ‘Dark Shadows’ (1966-1971) was the only soap opera to ever spawn a feature film series.
    Last year, the Vista Theatre celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the first ‘Dark Shadows’ spin-off film, “House of Dark Shadows” with a highly successful, sold-out charity event. Featuring state-of-the-art projection and sound, the Vista Theatre is a Hollywood landmark that has been an integral part of the Hollywood landscape since 1923. It was restored in 1999 and has hosted several revival and ‘event screenings.’

    Damn I wish I was in LA! I feel Night Of Dark Shadows pales in comparison to House Of Dark Shadows. Regardless, I would love both on DVD. [​IMG]
