This film began as a short for the Frankenstein 200 initiative with the help of several Radford University students and evolved into a 30 minute documentary on the creation, development and evolution of the Frankenstein monster as most people envision it. Since its inception in 1931, the Boris Karloff Universal version of the creature has become the most easily recognized character in the world . . . despite the fact that story's writer, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, would not recognize it at all. Thoroughly researched and supported with rare images, articles and accounts, the documentary is alive!  And . . . it may soon have a feature version on for television. 

The film premiered for Radford University audiences on October 29, 2018 (just in time for Halloween) but the public version be coming in spring 2019.  Stay tuned!
