Based on the 1973 novel by Brian Aldiss. Low-budget horror king Roger Corman's final directorial effort, and his first film after a hiatus of nearly 20 years, about a scientist from future Los Angeles who accidentally travels back to 1817 Switzerland, where he meets both Mary Shelley and, confusingly, her fictional creation Victor Frankenstein. INXS frontman Michael Hutchence makes a humorous appearance as Shelley's husband Percy as well.

Set in Los Angeles and Switzerland, shot on location in Italy.

10 x 8 inches. Near Fine.
