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.
