Adapted by Louis DiPilla III
This adaptation of the classic Frankenstein finds Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe-Shelly, Mary Godwin (soon to become Shelly), and an aspiring author, Dr. John Polidori, sharing a dreadfully stormy vacation in Switzerland. In order to keep themselves entertained they read horror stories and macabre poetry to themselves by candlelight. To break the monotony, Lord Byron gives all a challenge to write a ghost story better than the ones they had been reading. What happens next sends Mary into a world of death, horror and pain as the group all take a role in telling her story.
