Dark Shadows Opens
Dark Shadows, a 1960s Gothic soap opera set in Maine that's being adapted for the big screen by Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, is a true cult classic with a devoted fan base that thrives even forty years after the show went off the air. Camden, Maine is lucky enough to have one of its biggest fans in Willard Carroll who has been amassing an impressive collection of Dark Shadows memorabilia (Carroll is also known for owning the largest Wizard of Oz collection in the world). The collection includes the original ring and cane of Barnabas Collins, a Dark Shadows board game, original set drawings, the soundtrack of the series in 8-track and cassette, Jocette's original music box, and novels based on the series.

The Tim Burton adaptation starring Johnny Depp comes out Friday, May 11. See a trailer below.
