Mary and Percy Shelley go to visit Byron on a dark and rainy night. During a night of drinking, drugs and debauchery, the idea for Mary Shelley's Frankenstein are born. It includes some major British stars and is definitely interesting.

"This DVD version (Pro-Active Entertainment) is complete garbage. The video transfer is so horrible it looks like it was taken right off a VHS tape. Also, the audio is not in Dolby Surround, but MPEG-2 (which simply means its in two speaker stereo). Avoid this version at all costs. If you want to purchase this movie, buy the version from Lionsgate/Fox which has a superior audio and video transfer. You won't be disappointed!"
