I've followed Darren Gross's NoDS restoration work with great interest for the better part of 10 yrs. In 2002, when I began buying the 4-disc MPI sets, I immediately took an interest in NoDS, but decided not to watch it until the restoration of the 129 minute cut was complete, and it was given the proper release it deserves. I was rooting for the DS pilot rejected by WB in 2004, primarily because I believed we'd finally see the finishing touches on Gross's work. I was excited about the Burton/Depp film for exactly, and only, the same reason: I want NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS properly restored and released. I'm deeply disappointed by WB's treatment of the title, and by extension, it's fans. I'm thankful that we have been given a visually superior version of the inferior 94 minute cut. I bought it and watch it, but it's a bittersweet treat. It's incomplete, carelessly released, and only increases one's longing for 129 minute cut. DS fans are a resilient lot. We've been asking for the completion of this restoration for more than a decade. I will not give up hope that WB will someday produce a NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS release that they can be proud of, one that fans can buy and buy again without feeling frustrated and deeply slighted.
