In collaboration with Dark Shadows Fest and Lyndhurst, Sleepy Hollow Cemetery presents The feature film House of Dark Shadows. Released from his crypt by an errant groundskeeper, the undead Barnabas falls for a family governess who bears an uncanny resemblance to his long-lost love. Fangs flash and blood flows as the Collins family’s darkest secret are exposed in this 1970s cult classic based on the popular gothic soap opera Dark Shadows.
The movie was filmed on location in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow. The Lyndhurst estate served as the fictional Collinwood mansion, ancestral home of the Collins family and its supernatural intruders. Sleepy Hollow Cemetery’s receiving vault appeared as the crypt of Barnabas Collins.
