The successful television horror soap opera "Dark Shadows" was the basis for this film featuring the same television cast aboard for some scary action. Frid is 150-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins, who is accidentally released from his coffin by the handyman of the Collinswood mansion.

Frid introduces himself as a cousin from England and gains access to the mansion and the people who live there. When Frid sucks the blood from Bennett, two doctors, Hall and David, determine the cause of death to be vampirism, which is confirmed when Bennett returns from the dead. They dispatch

her permanently with a stake in the heart and discover Frid is the vampire. Hall falls in love with Frid and tries to find a medical cure for him, but soon both she and David fall prey to his blood lust. Frid loves Scott, the beautiful governess who looks exactly like his long-lost love. He seeks

to make her his vampire bride, but Scott's fiance, Davis, kills Frid by shooting a wooden arrow through his heart. The old-age makeup was done by Dick Smith, who made-up Dustin Hoffman for LITTLE BIG MAN. A sequel, NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS, was awful.
