DARK SHADOWS Round Table Discussion

  Video Watchdog #169


Exclusive! (click to enter)

While editing the Round Table Discussion devoted to Dan Curtis' DARK SHADOWS teleserial for VIDEO WATCHDOG 169, I had to take the pruning shears to a slight detour we made through the series' first feature film spin-off, HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS. But the reminiscences that were prompted were simply too entertaining to lose, so we're presenting them here on our website as a VW Exclusive.
       Only four members of our larger RTD board participated, and they are: Darren Gross, an authority on Dan Curtis and his productions whose work appears in THE DARK SHADOWS MOVIE BOOK and Kathryn Leigh Scott's RETURN TO COLLINWOOD, and who now directs audio dramas featuring DARK SHADOWS alumni for Big Finish Productions; Chris Herzog, an Evansville IL-based educator who is making his VW debut; Richard Harland Smith, a longtime VW contributor now making waves as a Turner Classic Movies "Movie Morlocks" blogger; and Robert Tinnell, a multi-threat creator whose credits include film producer (SURF NAZIS MUST DIE), film director (numerous credits including FRANKENSTEIN AND ME), and award-winning comics writer (most recently the Monsterverse publication FLESH AND BLOOD, illustrated by Neil D. Vokes, now in its second volume).
      Help yourself to some of Roger Collins' personal brandy and enjoy! --Tim Lucas
