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.

Hoping to free himself and the entire Collins family of Angelique with witch’s evil schemes, Barnabas hires artist Sam Evans to age her portrait, causing Angelique to rapidly age into a 200-year-old woman. The ghost of Reverend Trask appears at the Old House to seek vengeance against Barnabas for the tragedies in Collinsport of 1795. Professor Stokes questions Victoria Winters about her trip back in time and what she knows about Angelique. A mysterious stranger named Nicholas Blair arrives at Collinwood and claims to be the brother of Cassandra Collins (alias Angelique).
