'Night of Dark Shadows' is the second of the two Dark Shadows motion pictures. At the time of it's release, this one didn't do quite as well as the first, but over the years, it has developed a strong cult following, and looks very good on repeated viewings.
What always impressed me about 'Night of Dark Shadows' was it's subtlety. 'House of Dark Shadows' was fast, loud and very "in your face." 'Night of Dark Shadows' is quiet in comparison -- the music is lush and softer, and the pace is quite relaxed at times. However, what emerges is an underlying sense of dread which intensifies throughout the course of the film (similar to Dan Curtis' 'Burnt Offerings' from 1976). This makes the shocks and scares even more jarring, and by the end of the film, the audience is left feeling bewitched, bothered and bewildered!
It's also important to mention David Selby, who turns in an excellent performance as Quentin Collins. His moodswings and erratic behavior (sensitive one minute and vicious the next), leave us as confused as Kate Jackson's character is.
Hopefully, both 'Night of Dark Shadows' and 'House of Dark Shadows' will be released on DVD soon, with the additional footage that was removed from the films before their respective theatrical releases. As for now, both films are highly recommended to anyone who enjoyed the series.

Not as good as House of Dark Shadows but only because this film had been butchered before it was even shown in the theatres. If this film does not quite make sense, it is most likely because about 45 minutes or more had been "trimmed" from the original film. In spite of this hatchet job, this is still an good film. Yes, I bought one and I liked it but I wish they would release the restored version of this film. According to The Night of Dark Shadows Restoration Site, they have already found about 35 minutes of missing footage. The rest appears to be lost forever. There are a lot of really good horror movies that are still not available on video, yet there is so much poorly done stuff and stupid slasher stuff that is out there. Truly a shame.

in this 1971 sequel to "house of dark shadows'" night of dark shadows" is a creepy film about the ghost of angelique who comes back to claim charles well actually quentin collins who is the reincarnation of charles collins who was a painter like quentin is in the present time. the reason i gave "night " a 5 stars even though there was a lot of the film butchered out by a creep from mgm studio how dare he do that to grayson hall. but grayson was great in it and the 3 cast that was most memorable were kate jackson, david selby.and lara parker,as the bewitching angelique collins. when this film gets a restoration it will make sense and the most awaited scence is the seance according to nancy barrett who plays claire jenkins said it was her best scene maybe it will be the scenes that will be shown at the festival this summer if so i will be there. "night" isnt a bad movie at all . it is just missing some things to read about it get the dark shadows movie book the scripts to both films are in it hopefully "night of dark shadows" will come out on dvd with the missing scenes intact we need to fight cenorship because if we dont jerks like abery from mgm could ruin a great film i personally loved this movie even though the first film "house of dark shadows" was a better film but hopefully the missing scenes will allow the fans to love "night' a little more lara paker is the perfect angelique rather in the flesh or sprit . if you havent read her book about angelique read its a great read a s well.john karlen was great as well as nancy barrett,they made a good husband and wife team.Read more ›

Format: VHS Tape
In its current state, "Night of Dark Shadows" is a film which demands apologies from its fans. For anyone aware of its ludicrous 11th hour recutting and lost storyline, the knee-jerk response is to look upon it with pity, mumbling explanations and sympathy to any onlookers. For "Dark Shadows" fans, the film was initially an embarassment, a slipshod mess overlooked in favour of its less mutilated sibling "House of Dark Shadows": As the reasons for its incoherency became more commonly known, fans learned to enjoy it for what it might have been: Finally, with the publication of its complete scripts, they learned to apologise for it blindly, to such an extent that they often fail to acknowledge anything of value in the existing version, which is a great pity.
Sad and lopsided as it plays, shorn of a conclusion, with exposition torn away in jagged strips, "Night of Dark Shadows" astonishingly still contains a quality that begs to be enjoyed. Boasting a more polished production than the previous film, it seizes upon the first film's strengths in style and narrative, honing them for marriage with a far superior script and markedly more mature style. Whereas "House of Dark Shadows" replays as a succession of loud shouting set pieces, "Night" utlises its creative peaks to punctuate a highly charged and atmospheric narrative, which is eloquently conveyed throughout by the cast, dialogue and production.
Weaving deftly through classic literary achetypes and familiar "Dark Shadows" storylines, the script impresses throughout, with its wistful themes of eternal love and ghostly reincarnation, along with a deeply human side that inspires sympathy.
