New York Times - 04/10/1987
"...As ghoulishly funny and frenzied as a carnival ride....[Richardson is] an original..."
Variety - 12/10/1986
"...A poetic masterpiece....Ken Russell has made an unrelenting nightmare that is both uncomfortable and compulsive to watch..."

Product Description:

Bringing together historic fact, fiction and modern horror, this film tells the story of Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley and Lord Byron's experimentations with love, sex and drugs that purportedly inspired Mary Shelley to write the novel FRANKENSTEIN. See HAUNTED SUMMER for an interesting comparison.

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."
