New York Times - 04/10/1987
"...As ghoulishly funny and frenzied as a carnival ride....[Richardson is] an original..."

"...A poetic masterpiece....Ken Russell has made an unrelenting nightmare that is both uncomfortable and compulsive to watch..."

Plot Synopsis:

A richly detailed, delightfully chilling horror tale, centering around romanticism's poetic elite.
When Lord Byron, Percy and Mary Shelley, and other assorted artistic guests gather at a secluded mansion, they enjoy a frightfully scary drug-induced evening that ultimately inspires the writing of both Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" and Polidori's "The Vampyre."
