I just wanted you to know that any person/persons that have sent out a subscription to the site the past few months I cannot except due to needing upgrading site, they were not denied for any other reason. I will update when I have been able to upgrade the site and will welcome all DS Fans to please send or resend your subscriptions again, as they expire after 30 days being sent to me. Thank you for wanting to join, again until I upgrade the site...

The site is still free to public whether subscribed or not, I can be followed on twitter @candicecollins_, I can be followed on Google+, and I can be followed on my fb group page at Dark Shadows News and Updates.

CHRIS PENNOCK: BUSY FILMING AND EVACUATING

CHRIS PENNOCK: BUSY FILMING AND EVACUATING

Chris (Jeb Hawkes) filmed "Dr. Mabuse 2 - Etiopomar" in June and July, joining 3 DS colleagues in the independent psychological thriller. Jerry Lacy (Trask), Lara Parker, and Kathryn Leigh Scott reprised their roles from DM1. Jerry again plays the sinister title character. Writer/director Ansel Faraj plans a Summer 2014 release. Chris says DM2 has "a new ending climax that will blow your mind!"
The first "Doctor Mabuse" film world-premiered at the DS Festival's "DS Island Weekend" in Coronado, CA, in April. Plans call for its DVD release this fall.

Chris then shot the independent film "The Forest Fire" in Los Angeles. Publicity: It is "an ensemble piece of individual tragedies intertwined into a personal and beautiful apocalypse." http://indiegogo.com/projects/the-forest-fire
Chris lives in Idyllwild, in the mountains of the San Bernadino National Forest, southeast of Los Angeles, about 50 miles from Palm Springs. In mid-July, a real fire threatened: A serious, lightning-strike wildfire ravaged the vicinity, ripping through dry, rugged terrain. For over a week it spread rapidly, destroying some structures and forcing evacuations. Chris, his wife Lynn, their dog Boris, and some of their cats were evacuated for 5 days but thankfully returned home safely on July 21. The ashy, burned landscape not far from their home will heal in Nature's way.

JOHN KARLEN RECOVERING IN REHAB CENTER SEND GET WELL CARDS

JOHN KARLEN RECOVERING IN REHAB CENTER


John (Willie, Carl, William H. Loomis, Desmond, Kendrick, NODS' Alex) has been convalescing in a Los Angeles rehabilitation facility for the past several weeks, dealing with various health and mobility issues related to
diabetes.


A number of DS cast members have paid visits to John....
Kathryn Leigh Scott (Maggie) reports he was upbeat and looks good.

Jim Storm (Gerard) had a nice long visit and felt his humor and will are intact.

Lara Parker (Angelique) told shadowgram, "He's 80 years old and appreciated"
that she came. "He was glad to see me and was very
sweet. He was in good spirits."


David Selby (Quentin) and Jim Pierson (DS Festival director/Dan Curtis Productions rep) spent time with John late last week and said, that his attitude was good and positive. John told them he's "missed seeing the fans
the past couple of years" at the DS Festival events.
John's been a regular Festival guest, most recently in Burbank,CA, in 2010.

He says he hopes "to be well enough to
attend" the Festival next summer at Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, NY (where he and other DS TV cast members filmed the 1971 movie, "Night of Dark Shadows"). (SG will announce event details as we finalize plans.)


He's thinner and walks cautiously, but indications are he
is improved, and it is hoped he'll soon be released from
the rehabilitation center.
John is a beloved and longtime participant at DS events;
in fact, he was the first DS person to attend a fan
convention. He was our only guest at the first
ShadowCon, held as a part of the larger StarCon
convention in San Diego in 1977. ShadowCon was created
and organized by Jean (Peacock) Graham, Kathy Resch,
and Marcy Robin.


John says he greatly appreciates hearing from fans while he's in rehab.

You are invited and encouraged to send John get-well cards and letters. He has no computer or internet access, so postal-mail messages are most welcome.
You can write to John at:
