Dark Shadows


Back in 2010 I bought a big, bumper box set of Dark Shadows, watched about 3 episodes then slung it in the bin. 11 years on I’m asked to do it as a Dark Side cover so I buy it again and, after another dull decade of CGI perfection, I realise just how superb and gloriously inept it is. Fluffed lines, sets crashing down….man, it’s just brilliant. Go pick up the Blu Ray ‘cos believe me you haven’t lived till you’ve seen Dark Shadows!
