That is how Roger Grimes should have come back!Oh my God, how it is possible that Richard Shapiro never thought of including vampires in "Dynasty" ? "The Colbys" had an UFO and the only thing as ridiculous could have been to have a vampire ! I can picture Emma Samms as the victim.
In the season 4 cliffhanger she spots Count Peter De Vilbis in front of her bedroom window, floating, and beckoning her.That is how Roger Grimes should have come back!
To be fair, I still don't know what his official name is: Van Dien or Van Diem?Starring Casper Van Dan. The DVD release was so bargain basement, they couldn't even be arsed to proofread the cover.
I would love to watch this obvious Dark Shadows meets Dynasty rip off but the picture quality is so terrible. It sounds to me that the music scoring is rehashed from The Colbys only with slight variation.
Yes. There was definitely music used that I thought was very similar to / or had been used again in The Colbys. Particularly the bit at the end of this scene.I just checked IMDb and Dark Mansions was indeed scored by Ken Harrison who scored lots of The Colbys and some season 8 and 9 of Dynasty. He most definitely has a style and I like it. It's very sweeping and grand but also very ominous.
It was also part produced by Robert McCullough who produced early Falcon Crest. Dark Mansions does have a wee bit of that Falcon Crest vibe about it, a bit gothic, the extended intermingled families, the old house etc. I would have loved if this show had have been picked up it's actually right up my street. It would have been better than Hotel.
The music in this promo is also quite Colbys-esque
This is undoubtedly the same composer, and actually a variation on a theme.Yes. There was definitely music used that I thought was very similar to / or had been used again in The Colbys. Particularly the bit at the end of this scene.
I just watched this movie.As it turns out, they had a viewer screening to gauge the response to it and the assembled audience howled with laughter at what was supposed to be a straight drama
The Shapiros also did a Vampire show in the 90s I think.
There was also Spelling TV's Kindred: The Embraced, which was basically a vampiric Melrose Place with elements of of The X-Files and Beauty And The Beast (with Kelly Rutherford as both Scully and Catherine).Blood Ties could have been the first True Blood!
Gosh I had no idea. He also played millionaire Simon Bolt in Sisters.I can still remember my shock when lead actor Mark Frankel's death was announced over the closing credits of one of the episodes mid-season.
