      An absolute necessity for the Dark Shadows geek fan like myself While I ve read about the series in other books penned by Ms Scott, I was pleasantly surprised to read the behind the scenes type stories for the many off springs of the original series Plus, there is a section on the new upcoming Tim Burton movie So, many things I already knew, but a whole lot I didn t plus awesome pictures throughout Time very well spent, as far as I m concerned

      A 3.5 a fun read I remember watching Dark Shadows sometimes when it was on during the late 1960s and early 1970s I did not watch every episode I was a kid at the time Kathryn Leigh Scott wrote of her memories acting in Dark Shadows.She also gave memories of the Dark Shadow movies they filmed during that time She had some very helpful memories of her time on the show I can see she has fond memories I really liked the pictures she included a very generous amount of pictures of her and the cast The [...]

      First off I loved this book I have fond memories of rushing home from school in the afternoon to watch Dark Shadows on television I remember telling the other guys I knew that we HAD to watch this show It may have been part soap opera, but I had many of the neighborhood boys gathered in my home each weekday watching it faithfully before going outside to play ball, cops and robbers, or whatever.I d been away from Dark Shadows for many years, but after seeing the recent Tim Burton Johnny Depp Dark [...]

      Kathryn Leigh Scott does such a great job with the Dark Shadows books I think it s because she s from Minnesota I thoroughly enjoyed this one, in addition to both the Dark Shadows Almanac and the Dark Shadows Companion, all by Pomegranate Press Return to Collinwood has some great essays by former cast members as they interact with the 2012 movie cast I think my favorite was Leigh s The Mansion on the Hill where she describes her visits to the Seaview Terrace Mansion in Newport, RI where the tele [...]

      Deceptively slim with lots of photos, Return to Collinwood is crammed full of interesting stories and an overview of every incarnation of Dark Shadows It s easy to view what we see on the screen as a fait accompli and part of an overall plan, but this book easily dispels that illusion Even if you have no interest in the fantasy horror genres you will find the extensive descriptions of the behind the scenes detailing many of the challenges faced in bringing Dark Shadows to life to be genuinely il [...]

      The author played Maggie Evans and Josette Dupres on the original Dark Shadows This book is a collection of articles written by her and other DS alumni about their experiences both on the series and original films, and the Tim Burton remake Fans will enjoy others, probably not The big surprise to me Ms Scott didn t care for actor Roger Davis back in the day, and she apparently wasn t alone.

    16. TrumanCoyote on said:

      The best part of this book were the reminiscences by Ms Kringstad with the article about the two early movies Oh yes, and all the pictures were a lot of fun I mainly just skipped the stuff about the 1991 show and the Tim Burton movie I wasn t able to last than 10 15 minutes trying to watch either of those ventures.

      My sweetheart gave me a Dark Shadows and Addams Family Christmas, with DVDs, books, bobble heads, jewelry, and This book was just one of the many things I received from him, and I am thoroughly enjoying it AND it just occurred to me that this can count as my 2015 popsugar reading challenge as A memoir.

    18. Denise on said:

      Best of all Ms Scott s Dark Shadows books, since it covers all the various incarnations of Dark Shadows, though it was a little lacking on Night of Dark Shadows, and had the account of the last hurrah of their cameos for the 2012 movie The one drawback is that it is not hardcoverch a beautiful book was worthy of that treatment.
