While composing her famous novel Frankenstein, Mary Shelley plunges into an opium fever dream while having a hot love affair with Percy Shelley. As she writes, the characters in her novel come to life and begin to plague her relationship with Percy. Soon she will have to choose between true love and her literary masterpiece.

“Mary Shelley helped create two of the most popular genres in cinema, horror and science fiction,” said Craig Engler, Shudder general manager, in a statement. “But her story has too often fallen into the shadow of the legendary monster that created her. With A nightmare awakensNora Unkel gives us the opportunity to see Maria in a new light and to appreciate her achievements again. “

“With her creature and creator, Mary Shelley created science fiction as a whole genre and fixed nineteenth-century Europe in a way that was never thought possible,” said writer / director Nora Unkel in a statement. “Shelley’s struggle with love, loss, abandonment by society and family, and her own sanity had yet to be fully captured on screen. She lived a colorful life full of love, drugs and freedom together with some of the most famous artists of her time. With A nightmare awakensI hope to keep Shudder members excited by Shelley’s creepy, intimate, and dark narrative, inspired by how much their story is actually our own. “

Actor Alix Wilton Regan (The woman), Giullian Yao Gem (Scream: The TV Series, Marvel’s Iron Fist), Philippe Bowgen (Mick) and Lee Garrett, Claire Glassford, and Shannon Spangler. While the filmmakers went to great lengths to make the lighting and design of the film as historically accurate as possible, they decided to cast racially diverse actors and produce A Nightmare Wakes with a predominantly female production team.
