The FRANKENSTEIN: THE REAL STORY collection from HISTORY® examines how the tale of a brilliant but deranged scientist who builds a grotesque monster from the body parts of fresh corpses has its roots in reality. IN SEARCH OF THE REAL FRANSKENSTEIN looks at scientists throughout history who experimented with reviving animal and human corpses to find the secret force of life. FRANKENSTEIN explores the fact-or-fiction origins of the tale that became the first science fiction novel. IT’S ALIVE! THE TRUE STORY OF FRANKENSTEIN further traces the story through all its artistic renditions, from 19th-century stage adaptations to 1930s silent films to Mel Brooks’s satirical YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN and Kenneth Branagh’s faithful horror interpretation. This spectacular set features interviews with actors including Gene Wilder and experts on Mary Shelley, the 19th-century novel, the horror genre, cinema makeup and much more.
