The Collinwood Mansion, a house built in 1795 in fictional coastal Collinsport, Maine, has been home to the Collins family—and other sometimes unwelcome supernatural visitors—since its inception. Almost every resident of the town is too scared to even drive by the house due to rumors and legends. Based on the "Dark Shadows" television series, the film expansion follows vampire Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid), who searches for a cure for vampirism so he can marry a woman who resembles his long-lost fiancée Josette (Kathryn Leigh Scott).

Screened as part of Maine in the Movies, a statewide festival of films set in Maine.
