This is Mary Shelley, Mother of Popular Scary Stories

Early in the age of modern storytelling, one creative and tenacious author made her mark in the horror genre, Mary Shelley. Even if the name is unfamiliar, her creation is something everyone will recognize: Frankenstein and his monster.

Mary Shelley revolutionized writing because she was a woman writing horror. Prior to Shelley, women were poets or wrote romantic stories like Jane Austen. There was such an uproar about her manuscript, many thought it wasn’t her writing at all.

In this complex and compelling film, the tale of how Mary Shelley put pen to paper leaps from paper to screen. Let her story give all storytellers inspiration to dream big and never let anyone drag you down.
