I loved the show in 1965 and if it replayed again I would watch it all over again
this show in its day was very created,and really brought out science fiction and monsters we love to be scared by, vampires, werwolfs and witches and not forget traveling thru time and to the past. and the phenix truly a great show!!!!

The series was into it's second year before I even heard about it. Once I started watching, I never missed another episode! I also saw both subsequent movies. I didn't think as much of Night of Dark Shadows as I did House of Dark Shadows.

I also liked both Bela Lagosi & Christopher Lee as Dracula, and Lon Chaney Jr. as the Wolfman. Who else remembers seeing Michael Landon in "I Was a Teenage Werewolf"?
