This is probably why I so enjoyed seeing Michael Banks' interpretation, "Shadows of the Night," right. Inspired by the work of Margaret Keane, it manages to capture the damp melancholia of DARK SHADOWS without mocking its melodramatic trappings. It's a clever, sweet image.
Banks goes by the handle of Sugar Fueled online. If you want to grab a copy of "Shadows of the Night" for yourself, he has giclee canvas prints of this image available at his website.
(* I was going to go with ..."a nude portrait of Thayer David as "Matthew Morgan,"but decided against it.)
