It is the most famous monster in literature. The enduring creation of Mary Shelley has appeared in countless films and books since it was dreamed up by the 20 year old wife of the famed poet Percy Shelley. But is it possible that the story of the grotesque monster assembled from the parts of cadavers is rooted in the truth? FRANKENSTEIN investigates the true stories of two men who may be at the heart of the classic tale. First, travel to the castle near Frankfurt where an 18th century German doctor conducted gruesome experiments on corpses and live humans! There are startling parallels between what is known of his experiments and Shelley's tale. Another possible source is the work of amateur British scientist Andrew Crosse, who claimed to have generated life in the course of electrical experiments. He was silenced by a religious outcry against his god-like claim, but is his story at the heart of Frankenstein? FRANKENSTEIN sheds new light on an old tale, and re-awakens the horror of a monster that will be with us forever and may be closer to reality than we would like!
