David Gregory has made documentaries about a slew of films and filmmakers, most notably 2014’s terrific Lost Soul, which detailed director Richard Stanley‘s travails on his big screen adaptation of The Island of Dr. Moreau. Now, Gregory has turned his lens on Dark Shadows, the Gothic soap opera which starred the late Jonathan Frid as vampire Barnabas Collins and inspired the 2012 film of the same name.

It has been announced that Gregory has wrapped production on Master of Dark Shadows, a feature documentary about the show and its creator, Dan Curtis. The film will feature interviews with cast members as well as True Blood creator Alan Ball and actors Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Steele, among others. Master of Dark Shadows is narrated by Deadwood and John Wick star Ian McShane and is set to be released this spring.
