The Dark Shadows movie trailer was released earlier this week, as the promotional campaign for the new feature film begins in earnest. With nearly 150 shots in two minutes there's a lot to take in, so here's our rundown of seven hidden details you might have missed...

1. Home Sweet Home
Longtime Dark Shadows fans won't have missed the influence of original Collinwood location Seaview Terrace on the design of the big screen mansion.

Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family...
