Crazy-ass movie. Ken Russell is a freak.

The poets Byron and Shelley, along with FRANKENSTEIN author Mary Shelly and other guests, spend a night drinking laudanum and holding a seance to conjure up their worst nightmares. The non-linear horror story gives Ken Russel a chance to do what he does best--produce lurid, phantasmagorical visions (including a woman with eyes in her breasts)--resulting in one of his better films.

Well this Movie has a messed up Story. A lot of Nudity guaranteed, but there is a less point in the Plot and then the clossing as "Mary Shelleys Frankenstein? I dont deny that I enjoyed it, but I still missed the main thing: what is it all about?
