HISTORY® presents all the raw details and facts on the most famous science fiction character of all time in Frankenstein: The Real Story arriving on DVD January 14thfrom Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The story has both haunted and entertained the world for close to two centuries.  Timed to the highly anticipated release of I, Frankenstein, this fascinating collection tells of a brilliant but deranged scientist who builds a grotesque monster from the body parts of fresh corpses. Featuring three engrossing documentaries that explore the story from various angles, the Frankenstein: The Real Story DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of just $14.98.


In Search of the Real Frankenstein looks at scientists throughout history who experimented with reviving dead animals and human corpses in attempts to find the secret force of life. Frankenstein explores the origins of the tale that became the first science fiction novel.  Did it spring from Mary Shelley's imagination or did she base it on an 18th-century German doctor who conducted gruesome experiments on live humans?  It's Alive: The True Story of Frankenstein, Part 1 further traces the story through all its artistic renditions: 19th-century stage adaptations, silent film versions including the 1931 film starring Boris Karloff, its superb 1935 sequel Bride of Frankenstein, Mel Brooks' hilarious satire Young Frankenstein and the 1994 Kenneth Branagh film starring Robert De Niro. This spectacular set includes interviews with actors, including Gene Wilder, as well as experts on Mary Shelley, the 19th century novel, the horror genre, cinema makeup and much more.[font="Arial;font-size:11pt;"] [/font]
