Dark Shadows

Not sure about you but my mom banned us from watching this show because we would get horrid nightmares. Of course that didn't stop us from watching at our friend's houses. We always got caught when we did because the nightmares would give us away. Knowing that they filmed parts of it here in town just made it seem more real.
