Niteman Speaks ... About Dark Shadows

If you had not been born yet in 1966, you may have never heard of Dark Shadows. I am lucky enough to have been around long enough to enjoy this Gothic soap opera when it was first run on ABC from 1966 to 1971. Every afternoon, if possible, I was in front of the TV set to watch this favorite of mine.

The show had many supernatural elements which were very daring for a daytime soap of the time. Not only was the subject of vampirism pretty much the main theme, but you also got stories of werewolves, ghosts, zombies, witches and warlocks, man-made monsters and even time travel.

The show had a large following at the time, and even to this day, the show remains a cult classic and still has quite a number of fans.

If you have yet to be introduced to this awesome piece of TV "horror" history, borrow it from a friend or relative, or better yet, start your own DVD collection.

Enjoy the info below ... until next time!
