From the back of the case:

With its alluring tales of Gothic mystery and supernatural intrigue, Dark Shadows became one of the most popular daytime series of all time. Since first airing on ABC-TV from 1966-71, Dark Shadows has earned the reputation of being one of the most unusual and enduring programs in television history. The character of Barnabas Collins, a guilt-ridden, 175-year-old vampire, brought the show tremendous success.

In 1970, Daphne Harridge pleads with the evil ghost of Gerard Stiles, begging him to spare the children of Collinwood from harm. Dr. Julia Hoffman and Willie Loomis discover the identity of the vampire that has been attacking Maggie Evans. Sebastian Shaw declares that Gerard's ghost will take over Collinwood. Using the stairway through time, Julia escapes to the year 1840 and anxiously awaits Barnabas Collins to join her, posing as his sister. Desmond Collins shows servant Ben Stokes the mysterious and magical head of Judah Zachery. Lamar Trask enlists psychic Leticia Faye to use her powers to find out the fate of his father, Reverend Trask, who disappeared in 1795. Using the name Valerie as an alias, Angelique the witch returns and learns that Barnabas has been released from his coffin. She warns him that unless they live together as man and wife, she will cause his true love, Roxanne Drew, to become a vampire.
