ANOTHER DARK SHADOWS REVIEW - PART 2


Despite the occasional mistakes, or maybe because of them, DS is highly enjoyable. The entire cast has been able and often better than the material, and the directors frequently work out some stylish effects and nice touches.
The writers have borrowed liberally from DRACULA, FRANKENSTEIN, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, THE WOLF MAN, THE PREMATURE BURIAL, THE UNDEAD, and THE INNOCENTS, among others, giving the an affecting sub—classical Old/New quality. All concerned seem to be having a time, even when confused, and the fun is contagious. Maybe not to Cleveland Amory, but to your COF reviewer at least. And, these days, who else can you trust?
