45 minute drama-documentary for C5 and The History Channel
Written and Directed by Julien Benoiten
It turns out that those familiar spine-chilling nightmares from our youth all have their origins in historical fact.
Confronting the true face of horror – and combining heart stopping narrative drama with expert interviews - 'True Horror: Frankenstein' tells the story of Professor Giovanni Aldini, the real-life showman scientist who helped inspire Mary Shelly's 'Frankenstein' legend.
