The Dark Shadows Movie Book is the first publication to examine and commemorate the two M-G-M theatrical motion pictures (“House of Dark Shadows” and “Night of Dark Shadows”) based on the successful ‘60s Gothic television series “Dark Shadows.” The Dark Shadows Movie Book features reproductions of the uncut original scripts to both films (which offer numerous rare scenes deleted from the film’s release prints), complete with producer-director Dan Curtis’ extensive script notes--offering unique insights to the filming process. The four female stars of the films--Kate Jackson, Lara Parker, Nancy Barrett and Kathryn Leigh Scott--contribute their recollections of the productions. The book also contains dozens of previously unpublished publicity photographs and behind-the-scenes shots, including many in full color. “House of Dark Shadows,” released in 1970, involves the story of reluctant vampire Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid) and his attempt to make Collinwood governess Maggie Evans (Kathryn Leigh Scott) his eternal bride. The film also starred veteran Hollywood screen actress Joan Bennett.

Catherine's last job ended badly. Corporate bullying at a top TV network saw her fired and forced to leave London, but she was determined to get her life back. A new job and a few therapists later, things look much brighter. Especially when a challenging new project presents itself — to catalogue the late M. H. Mason's wildly eccentric cache of antique dolls and puppets. Rarest of all, she'll get to examine his elaborate displays of posed, costumed and preserved animals, depicting bloody scenes from the Great War. Catherine can't believe her luck when Mason's elderly niece invites her to stay at Red House itself, where she maintains the collection until his niece exposes her to the dark message behind her uncle's "Art." Catherine tries to concentrate on the job, but Mason's damaged visions begin to raise dark shadows from her own past. Shadows she'd hoped therapy had finally erased. Soon the barriers between reality, sanity and memory start to merge and some truths seem too terrible to be real... in The House of Small Shadows by Adam Nevill.
