Michael Gough , Vickery Turner in The Need for Nightmare
Where did the great 19th-century writers of horror-Mary Shelley, Robert Louis Stevenson , Bram Stoker , and Edgar Allan Poe find the inspiration for their horrifying stories? In almost every case it was in a nightmare. From these nightmares came: Frankenstein, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Dracula, and the many gruesome tales of Poe.
This Omnibus drama/documentary examines the moment of inspiration for these great works and asks why these stories of man-made monsters, vampires, alter egos and ghastly events have such a powerful attraction.
