Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0861366069, Hardcover)Dracula
We have all grown up under the shadow of the elegant Count, at once an attractive, brutal and erotic creature of the night. This classic horror story expressing the most persistent nightmare of the human condition, is brought to life by a skilled and imaginative cast, coupled with authentic 'monster music', from the golden age of 1940s horror movies, a 'Dracula' ballet score and various sound effects, to create 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 the 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. Shelley's ideas, and her dramatic but poignant story, is brought to life in this sound dramatization.

The monster was supposed to be man's benefactor, but, scorned for his ugliness, he swears revenge on his creator and the human race.
