Dark Shadows mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Angelique traps Barnabas in the coffin for the second time, there is a separate lid to the coffin. But by the time Barnabas is in the cemetery, hinges have suddenly appeared on it.

01:24:05 - 01:25:45

Casual Person

Plot hole: When Elizabeth is interviewing Victoria for the first time, she mentions that Victoria had sent her an application, therefore her name had to have been on it. However, Maggie Evans didn't change her name to Victoria Winters until she was on the train en route to Collinwood for the interview, therefore Elizabeth would have been expecting Maggie Evans, not Victoria Winters.

Continuity mistake: As the Collins watch the manor burn down, two cars can be seen in front of the house. A couple of shots later, the cars have vanished.


Casual Person

Factual error: On the Amtrak train, "Vicki" sees a sign advertising downhill skiing trips to Victoria, BC. There are no downhill ski areas in Victoria, or close by, and Amtrak doesn't travel to Victoria.

Factual error: The train sequences that are supposed to be in 1972 show Amtrak cars that were not built until the 1980s, and the rear (pusher) locomotive was not built until after 2000, as was the modified locomotive/control car in the front. The Amtrak graphics are from this century also. They went to the trouble to create 1972 Maine license plates for the vintage autos, and spent millions on effects, but they can't contact a historical society for the use of a correct coach for a day and search for stock footage of a train that's not 40 years too modern?

Continuity mistake: After Angelique kisses Barnabas, the lipstick she leaves on his face disappears and reappears between shots.

Continuity mistake: In the aerial sequences of the Amtrack train near to the start of the file, most of the shots shows 2 engines (front and rear) plus 4 carriages. In two of the shots, you can see 5 carriages.

Mr Manchester

Continuity mistake: When Barnabas stops the disco ball from landing on David, he is set on fire. Willie then chucks a pail of water on him to stop him burning. The next shot shows the bucket Willie holds and there is no trace of water, nor is the bucket wet, even though he'd just used water from the pail to throw at Barnabas.


Casual Person

Continuity mistake: As Barnabas approaches Dr. Hoffman, he passes an IV bag full of blood. Quick shot to Hoffman, then back to Barnabas, and he passes the IV bag again.

Angelique Bouchard: I'm going to make an offer to you, Barnabas. My last. You can join me by my side and we can run Collinsport together as partners, and lovers... Or I'll put you back in the box.
Barnabas Collins: I have already prepared my counter-proposal. It reads thusly: You may strategically place your wonderful lips upon my posterior and kiss it repeatedly!
