FRANKENSTEIN REC challenges anything you know about the Monster, Mary Shelley and Victor Frankenstein!

FRANKENSTEIN REC challenges anything you know about the Monster, Mary Shelley and Victor Frankenstein! | Frankenstein Rec | Scoop.it
Mary Shelley, Lord Byron and Victor Frankenstein in a galvanizing conspiracy for the creation of the new living deaths in a just published book and upcoming movie give a new take on the infamous Monster and its creator.
Frankenstein Rec's insight:

Convinced that Mary Shelley’s novel is not fiction but reality, the young reporter with the gothic outfit has made it her quest to find the real Victor Frankenstein and his fellow alchemists, who in 1817 discovered the secret of eternal life and are still living among us.
For this reason, when a touring theatre company comes to her town, putting on a production of "Frankenstein", it immediately catches her attention. Obsessed with the famous tale, and beset by visions and nightmares of monsters during the narcoleptic fits she suffers, the young girl starts interviewing members of the troupe for an exclusive in her ghostly TV program and blog.
As a result she comes face to face with Mary Shelley’s heroes, who appear in the town - and consequently in her life - more alive and alarming than ever, and apparently concealing secrets of eternal life. The more she becomes entwined in their world, the more she loses touch with her own.
“Frankenstein REC” is an amazing new take on the 19th century gothic horror classic that renews the story of Victor Frankenstein in an unforeseen way. More than one year before 20th Century Fox’s upcoming motion picture “Frankenstein” release with James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe and with Universal’s still rumoured Frankenstein project hoping to be realized soon too, this astonishing young-adult fiction book on the famous tale is a welcomed surprise. Written by author and film director Costas Zapas the book is already in development for a feature film according to Screen Daily and Hollywood Reporter.

In 1817, they managed to defeat mortality and return from the dead. Interviewing the theatre troupe members, the reporter is confronted with the dark heroes of the novel, who appear in the city more alive than ever.

But what is real and what is just her imagination? Who are these “actors”? Why have they come to her town? And who even it this young reporter?

Amazing vintage covers

The cultural significance of Shelley's novel shown through book cover art & design. It is interesting to note again, how influential James Whale's film has been on the public imagination. It is hard to get away from those neck bolts!
