Summary
On 16 June 1816, trapped inside a villa by insatiable thunderstorms erupting across Lake Geneva in Switzerland, Lord Byron challenged his party of young bohemians to a ghost story competition. Their confinement was to change their destiny, and the course of literary history, forever. That night, Byron's challenge gave birth to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, the gothic masterpiece of Romantic fiction, and Polidori's The Vampyre, the first great vampire novel. Combining drama with the opinions of a stellar cast of gothic, horror and science fiction writers, including Neil Gaiman and Margaret Atwood, this fascinating documentary explores of one of the most significant moments in gothic history and considers its lasting effect on modern literature
