Nickname: "DCP"

Logo: Scrolling up in the credits of Dark Shadows, we see a superimposed logo with stylized text (the first letters of each word are in boxes) as follows:



Dan


Curtis



Productions, inc.


copyright © (year)


ALL RIGHTS RESERVED



Variants:

 • On some 1970-71 episodes, a text-only version was used as follows:

DAN CURTIS PRODUCTIONS, INC. copyright © year

 • Another variation, seen on the 1969 TV movie Dead of Night: A Darkness at Blaisedon, is like the stylized-text version used on Dark Shadows, except this copyright disclaimer is used:



© MCMLXIX DONNYBROOK PRODUCTIONS, INC.

All rights reserved

FX/SFX: Scrolls up in the credits.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of Dark Shadows, and/or a deep voice-over with a echo/stutter-like effect saying, "Dark Shadows is a Dan Curtis Production."

Availability: Found on all episodes of the original Dark Shadows TV series, which ran on ABC from 1966 to 1971.

Scare Factor: Low to nightmare, depending on what you think of the spooky Dark Shadows theme song or the sudden echoing deep voice-over catching you off-guard. It only got worse with the follow-up...


2nd Logo (1973)


Logo: An in-credit text that reads:

Dan Curtis Productions (1973)


A

DAN

CURTIS

PRODUCTION


IN ASSOCIATION WITH


The logo would then cut to a Metromedia Producers Corporation logo that would be superimposed on the same background.


FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The end-title theme, which is that of The Norliss Tapes.

Availability: Seen on the 1973 TV movie The Norliss Tapes.

Scare Factor: High to nightmare. The man's scary-looking face, as well as the scary-sounding music, may scare you.


3rd Logo (1991-1992)

Logo: An in-credit text that reads as "DAN CURTIS PRODUCTIONS, INC." with the text "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" in a smaller font below.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The end-title theme.

Availability: Rare. It was only seen on the short-lived 1991 revival Dark Shadows on Chiller.

Scare Factor: Medium to nightmare. It depends on how you feel of the thunderstorm on the end-credits of Dark Shadows.
