Quotes Edit

  • Barnabas Collins: I know why Angelique sent me. He must be given this medicine... because it will kill him. Why must I do this? I must do it 'cause... it is her command.



  • Julia Hoffman: Barnabas you can't fall asleep. You must wake up. He must be watched every minute until morning.


  • Julia Hoffman: Before you go, Barnabas, may I ask you a question?
  • Barnabas Collins: What is it?
  • Julia Hoffman: Why were you trying to give him the medicine just as I walked in?

  • Maggie Evans: Are you feeling better?
  • Joe Haskell: Yes... yes, I feel much better. I'm going to live. I'm not going to die.

Opening narration Edit

The hour of dawn lingers far out at sea beyond cliffs of Collinwood, as though reluctant to bring the light of day to the land around the ancient house, sensing perhaps that an endless dark is more suited to the evil deeds that could be done this day, when two men trapped by the same unearthly force become tangled in a plot that could mean the destruction of one or the other.
