Finished watching “Dark Shadows,” Collection 4. 📺 👻 In an interview on one of the discs, Sam Hall, a writer on the show, said that they stole a lot from – “Who was that American writer?” – Lovecraft. Loved hearing this, but haven’t seen direct examples of it yet beyond general atmosphere. The change that takes place toward the end of this grouping of episodes is well done. And the candles in the now younger-than-old house are white. So, a-ha, the blue ones are purposeful and serve the set and atmosphere.
