Awesome, and oh how I wanted to attend this very special DARK SHADOWS Fest 2013 Event to "see & honor" my childhood idols/Cast legends of Dark Shadows. So, to everyone, Dark Shadows fans that are able to attend have a grand time and to the legendary & Classic DS's Cast your mystical magic and how lucky for us fans to have grown up seeing one of the "best" chilly Gothic-horror TV Soap series (and movies) that ever aired. Thank you, and how so "cool" that Mr. Stiles/Actor James Storm will also be present w/his DS's colleagues. He and Quentin Collins/Actor David Selby still very much give me the chills when they breath life into these amazing ghost characters that they did and still do so well. Scary...'

I like it when Quentin (the ghost) scares everyone from the Collins Mansion and when Gerald being possessed by the evil Juda Zachery spirit. Very frightening!!
