‘In Search of the Real Frankenstein’ is a controversial History Channel US special which features cutting edge forensic documental analysis to uncover new information about Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Delving deep into hidden documents in Oxford University, the film reveals evidence to indicate that Shelley did not ‘dream’ of Frankenstein’s monster but was influenced by the strange medical experimenters at the time. Using high end drama reconstruction and beautiful location footage ‘In Search of the Real Frankenstein’ is representative of how Wild Dream Films produces extremely cinematic documentaries with revealing and surprising new historical research.
