Dark Shadows DVD Updates


MPI Home Video have released cover art for the new budget-price reissues of their Dark Shadows episode DVD sets. As previously reported, the revised editions feature identical content to the original volumes in slimline cases with revised cover artwork. Some examples of the new designs can be seen above, and the whole range can be viewed via the links below. The sets are out in April and can be pre-ordered now.


Elsewhere, the much-anticipated Dark Shadows: The Complete Series DVD box set is now available to order again, with a new release date of April 10 listed. Amazon are offering the set at a discount price, saving nearly $180.00 on the retail price. To pre-order now, click here.

I wanted to let you guys know that many of the people on the Amazon Reviews and Forums found out that the Complete Series Limited Editon will be a Deluxe Edition unlimited in July... Think of it as a second run for the series... Because it was such a high demand... The Deluxe Edition will not have the signed card nor will it be numbered...

Thank you MagicalWingLT for that vital information. YES, a very big yes keep the MPI DARK SHADOWS Deluxe DVD(s) coming!! Their spectacular Epic contents and new (and the older designs) are awesome and a treasure keepsake. For the longest time I only owned two DS's Collection DVD's #11 & #13 (the old design) and just recently my sister pre-order/bought for us the whole DARK SHADOWS: Origional Complete Series w/Barnabas Collins laying in his Casket Casing Set!! I can't wait for it's arrival & release date of April 10th, 2012. It was a great buy, thank you MPI for keeping our DARK SHADOWS safe in your care! And thanks for the great bargain. Now I hear their coming out with a Super Deluxe DS Edition expanded more from the Limited Edition (which we've bought)...'that's just fine, AND am thrilled/happy that finally we have the total Classic orgional DARK SHADOWS in it's entirety. Big smile! I love the individual new DS's cover designs with it's bold framing look..'I got all misty eyes looking at the legends acting-talents that breath Life into DARK SHADOWS. Peace!

I still feel that MPI could throw a bone to those of us who shelled out more than $2,000 over the past few years to buy every DVD set in their big, thick, shelf-space-hogging cases! I've asked them to make some "empty" Barnabas casket for us to purchase at a reduced price so we can transfer all our DVDs into them, and free up much needed shelf space. Asked twice. No answer the first time....we shall see about the second time. Anyone agree that MPI should do this, or is it just me?

I think that's a excellent idea! Wish I thought of it first lol

I, like Queequeg from Melville's Moby Dick, have decided to have a coffin container fashioned for myself and my videos. They were so costly in this world; perhaps, I shall enjoy them in the next.
