Pay attention vampire lovers, a new documentary focused on Barnabas Collins himself, Jonathan Frid, will be headed your way this Halloween season.

MPI Home Video has revealed that their latest feature, Dark Shadows & Beyond: The Jonathan Frid Story will showcase rare performance footage; archival material from Frid’s?private collection; a PBS-TV discussion with Frid; promotional pieces with the actor; Frid reading an excerpt of Washington Irving’s classic tale The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and the compilation video, The Best of Barnabas.

The documentary is from producer Mary O’Leary, a multi Daytime Emmy winner for General Hospital and The Young and the Restless.  O’Leary says, “Jonathan’s years on Dark Shadows have been well covered in print interviews. To gain insight, I chose to interview people who were close to him, ranging from his years at Yale, to his work in regional theater, to those involved in his one-man shows, which he toured across the country in his later years.”

The documentary is set to arrive on digital platforms, on MPI Home Video DVD and Blu-ray on October 5, 2021.  Have a look at the official trailer below and keep it locked to Horror News Network for more on Dark Shadows & Beyond: The Jonathan Frid Story.
