Fils du fondateur d'une poissonnerie ayant donné naissance à une petite ville du Maine, Barnabus Collins refuse les avances d'Angelique Bouchard, issue d'un rang inférieur. Férue de sorcellerie, celle-ci provoque la mort des parents de Barnabus, puis celle de la tendre Josette, à qui ce dernier venait de déclarer sa flamme. Pour compléter sa vengeance, la sorcière transforme l'élu de son coeur en vampire, que la populace enterre vivant dans un cercueil ceinturé de chaînes. En 1972, sur un chantier de construction, Barnabus est libéré par des ouvriers d'Angelique, devenue la propriétaire d'une poissonnerie très prospère, sur le point d'acculer à la faillite celle des Collins. De retour au manoir familial, le vampire fait alliance avec sa descendante, à la tête d'un clan formé de son frère voleur, de sa fille adolescente indifférente, de son jeune neveu mal remis de la mort de sa mère, et d'une psychiatre venue soigner l'enfant, mais qui a oublié de repartir. Tout en remettant l'entreprise familiale sur les rails grâce à un trésor caché, le revenant s'amourache de la gouvernante du garçon, qui ressemble étrangement à Josette. [(c) Médiafilm] [SDM]
