The film is based on the parody novel of the same name, which of course was written by Seth Grahame-Smith, major screenwriter of the DS movie.

A fan (Keith Dunmire) shared this sad news on the Official Fan Group page on Facebook:

"It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Rhonda Foster. She was a devoted Dark Shadows fan. For those who remember her, please continue to do so..."

She will also be remembered as a lawyer, writer, poet, collector, crafter and dear friend.  Rho, you'll be missed!  Here's a photo from my collection taken at the 1999 Festival; Rhonda/PostCool1 is front, right:

**** 1991 DS TV SERIES ON DVD – REISSUE IN FULL-SCREEN FORMAT
 
Dan Curtis Productions: “This past summer, the complete 12 episodes of the 1991 DS primetime NBC series starring Ben Cross were reissued on DVD by TGG Direct, which has licensed the program from MGM.
 
“Unlike previous DVD releases of DS '91, this TGG version for the first time offers the episodes in their original broadcast ratio of 4:3, as they aired on NBC and, later, the Sci-Fi Channel, in reruns. Previous DVDs of the series were formatted only in a widescreen aspect ratio that cropped the top and bottom of the screen. DS creator Dan Curtis actually directed the pilot movie and initial episodes with an eye towards framing what he shot in wide screen and he therefore did not object to the widescreen DVDs. However, subsequent episode directors did not follow the same visual template, so it is nice for fans and purists to have the entire DS '91 series in the full screen format as it was broadcast.”
 
--- PLEASE NOTE: “This is a standard definition DVD release. The episodes are not available on BluRay high definition. Additionally, the TGG set utilizes the same transfers from the earlier DVD sets. That means the scenes shot ‘day for night’ in the pilot are not properly ‘color timed,’ so it appears Barnabas is lurking in partial daylight.
 
“Even more disappointing is the fact that the deleted scenes and other bonus material issued on VHS tape by MPI are not included and have yet to find their way to DVD. Hopefully at some point a Blu Ray set might offer those elusive extras.
 
The TGG set has a $49.98 list price and can be purchased at Amazon.com and other online and retail outlets.
Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Shadows-Complete-Ben-Cross/dp/B001PXYH9G/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1447560301&sr=1-1&keywords=dark+shadows+1991
 
The NBC primetime revival DS originally was a midseason replacement series that ran 1-13/3-22-1991.

---- CHRIS PENNOCK IN NEW ONLINE FILM TRIBUTE TO EDGAR ALLEN POE
 
Chris (Jeb, Cyrus/John, Sebastian, Gabriel) portrays “Death” in the 12+-minute short “A POEM OF POE,” a “Halloween Tribute to the writings of Edgar Allen Poe.”
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5O2GQDV3IYI
 
Written and directed by Ansel Faraj and “adapted liberally from Poe’s writings,” the “play within a play” mostly interprets the poem “Annabel Lee.” which some consider to be based on a lost love in Poe’s own life. In the film, Poe himself, taunted by grim Death, seems to actually become and experience the “tragedy called Man” tale.

**** “MENTAL FLOSS” WEBSITE FEATURES “14 DS FACTS WITH BITE”
 
Based in the inquisitive and perceptive “Mental Floss” magazine, its online website 10-15-15 features “14 ‘Dark Shadows’ Facts With Bite.” The article is a look at “Popular Culture, Television, Vampires, Witchcraft.”
 
The article’s tone varies: factual, blunt, curious/puzzled, somewhat condescending, impressed with what DS did and represented for its time and technology, etc.  It describes DS as “a charmingly under-budgeted Gothic melodrama about a spooky seaside town in Maine that blended the supernatural (werewolves, witchcraft, and zombies) with parallel universes and time travel.”

**** DS EPISODES IN HALLOWEEN MARATHONS – DECADES TV CHANNEL
 
This past May, the new nationwide Decades TV channel, a collaboration between CBS Television and Weigel Broadcasting, aired 130 consecutive DS episodes as part of special pre-launch programming for Decades’ gradual roll-out in various markets across the country. ((Please see ShadowGram Updates #342 on 1-25-15 & #357 on 5-31-15. Also see the still-available Triple SG #124-#126 print issue.))
 
SG here shares details about the Halloween marathon. “Decades has now settled into its format of weekday themed blocks with a wide variety of vintage entertainment shows such as ‘I Love Lucy,’ ‘The Fugitive,’ and ‘The Brady Bunch,’ mixed in with documentary segments derived from the CBS News and Entertainment Tonight archives. On weekends, Decades continues showing marathons of classic series.”
 
Decades will be offering DS episodes over 2 weekends as part of its Halloween-theme marathons. Schedule follows.

PLEASE NOTE: Standard Time returns Sun., Nov. 1, at 2:00:00 AM. Clocks are turned backward 1 hour to be Sun., Nov. 1, at 1:00:00 AM local Standard Time (with some location exceptions).
 
The marathon will include the same early Barnabas episodes from 1967 that were shown during Decades’ DS marathon last May. This is NOT a continuation from that May block.
