12 June 2005 | by chsteineckeSee all my reviews

A stunning remake of the original series, this was considerably more sensual & more fully realized the erotic power of the vampire figure. (This is understandable when you consider the years that the original was taped, & that it was a daytime series.) I had waited for this remake for years & was never let down by it. Still have a bit of a grudge against NBC for canceling it before it really had a chance. Ben Cross & Joanna Going were wonderfully cast as Barnabas & Victoria/Josette, w/ a strong contribution by Lysette Anthony as Angelique. I wish that they would make a movie version, but realize that the time may have passed for same. Strongly urge any Gothic fans to purchase the video or DVDs of this series.
