Background information and notes Edit

  • The Deluxe Edition (the second printing) is not serialized and does not include a signed postcard by Jonathan Frid, but it is identical to the Limited Editon pressing in all other respects.
  • Released in 2012 in part to coincide with the release of Tim Burton's feature film remake of Dark Shadows.
  • The opportunity was taken to reinstate some footage accidentally left off of the original DVD releases: Episode 451, which featured the infamous blooper of actress Anita Bolster as Bathia Mapes being prompted offscreen, features as originally aired; and episode 695, which lost a scene between Barnabas and Maggie, includes that cut sequence. Since these edits were originally made without the knowledge of both MPI Home Video and Dan Curtis Productions, they were not known at the time of manufacture.
