It’s finally happened: a major site update! Welcome to the new Frightenstein.com, updated to HTML5 which should be easier to read and use for everyone on all kinds of devices (the .wav files won't work in Internet Explorer, but that's you, not me).

To those involved in the making of the show, this site is dedicated. For the rest, lean back and let your mouse take you for a trip back to that mysterious place, overlooking the sleepy village of Frankenstone, somewhere far away from the Count’s beloved homeland of Transylvania; the place known as Castle Frightenstein…
