Description

For a century Bram Stoker's Dracula has reigned supreme as the undisputed masterpiece of horror writing. We have all grown up under the shadow of the elegant Count, at once an attractive, brutal and erotic creature of the night.

Bram Stoker's 1897 classic horror story expressing the most persistent nightmare of the human condition is brought to life by a skilled and imaginative cast, including Brian Cox as Van Helsing and Heathcote Williams as Dracula.

Authentic 'monster music', from the golden age of 1940s horror movies, is combined with a 'Dracula' ballet score and various sound effects to crate a gripping aural experience. Take this opportunity to dream again...

The gothic tale of Frankenstein and his construction of a human being which runs amok, has, with the help of numerous films, become one of the most vivid horror stories.

But Mary Shelley's original novel, written in 1816, dealt more sympathetically with 'the daemon', showing how an initially beneficent creature is hammered into a daemon by the way he is treated.

Her ideas, and her dramatic but poignant story, are brought to life in this sound dramatization.
