Things go from bad to worse when she turns him into a vampire and buries him alive. Barnabas is pushing daisies until almost 200 years later in 1972, when a group of men dig him up and free him.

The over 200-year-old vampire returns to Collinwood Manor to find the Collins family, Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, played by Michelle Pfeiffer, Roger Collins, played by Jonny Lee Miller, Carolyn Stoddard, played by Chloe Moretz; and David Collins played by Gulliver McGrath.
