Amazon Prime offering a master class on the work of Dan Curtis

Amazon Prime is offering the equivalent of a master class in the television films of Dan Curtis. is great timing, now that I think of it. There's a feature length documentary about Curtis coming to home video in April called Master of Dark Shadows, and it's sure to prompt people to seek out his lesser-know work. In recent years Kino Lorber Classics have released high-definition restorations of Trilogy of Terror, Burnt Offerings, The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler on Blu-ray and DVD ... but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

What you get with an Amazon Prime membership right now are all 1,225 episodes of Dark Shadows (split into two categories titled Dark Shadows and Dark Shadows: The Beginning) and the two Dark Shadows anthologies The Haunting of Collinwood and The Vampire Curse. You also get Dan Curtis produced or directed movies Dracula, Scream of the Wolf, Dead of Night, The Turn of the Screw, Frankenstein, The Picture of Dorian Gray and Trilogy of Terror.

Sure, there are a few things missing off that list. House of Dark Shadows, Night of Dark Shadows and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde aren't streaming, but that's still a hell of a lot of television viewing.
