Dark Shadows

Kodak Moment #61

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is of me with the Dark Shadows standee at the movie Theater.

Movie Review: Dark Shadows

In 1966 a new kind of soap opera hit the TV, one about vampires, witches, ghost, and mystery.  This series followed a young lady named Victoria Winters, who moved to a house which was known throughout the town as being haunted.  The show was finding its footing for the first 200 episodes, as they gave us a few mystery storylines along with the normal soap drama.

For the last 8months I’ve been getting to watch a lot of an old 1960s soap opera called “Dark Shadows”, about a vampire and his family.  The series started in 1966 and lasted into the 70s.  There was even a remake of the series in the 1990s.  And now, Tim Burton is doing a movie based on this series.  I’m really excited about the movie, and trying to watch as much as I can of the original series.
