Lara Parker and Kathryn Leigh Scott

This pic is from October 18 when both House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows played at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. Rarely has the Castro had such a large turnout of fans on a beautifully, summer-like Saturday night. Left in photo is Lara Parker who played Angelique on "Dark Shadows" and Kathryn Leigh Scott was famous for playing Josette and Maggie Evans.

They told some really great stories about the mishaps and low-budget filming techniques they endured. Like the time that Lara Parker's eyebrows were burned off from the excess lighter fluid when she lit the house of cards, which she built for an incantation. instead of a slow fire, there was a tiny burst of fire and it was gone. They patiently took questions and were kind to spend the best part of the weekend with us.

We were very excited to see rare footage being restored of Night of Dark Shadows.

Fans are waiting for the day that Johnny Depp brings Barnabas Collins "back to life."
