It's a real treat to see the original scripts to both HOUSE and NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS, since both (especially the latter) suffered significant cuts before audiences got to see them way back when.

Nice package with great photos. Definitely recommended to fans of the movies and the TV series.

I picked this up mainly to read the screenplay, and better understand what should have been going on in the movie. That's good, because the screenplays take up the vast majority of the book. That said, Kathryn Scott's diary entries from the shooting of the first film was probably the best part. I found myself laughing out loud more than once at her rather ...more

GREAT!!!! I loved both movies even though Night of Dark Shadows had been edited to shreds...Warner Bros. is supposed to release both movies on DVD and Night of Dark Shadows is going to be restored to the original director's cut (YAY Dan Curtis!)..
