Synopsis

Ghosts, witches and werewolves populated this creepy daytime serial about Maine's Collins family, which included Barnabas, a nearly 200-year-old vampire who longed to be cured. The supernatural soap shifted between the present and the 18th century to tell its gothic tale. A prime-time revival mounted in 1991 possessed more special effects, sex and gore than its bare-bones original, but it never caught on and was buried by NBC in less than two months.
