In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a pair of horror movies of slightly different sizes.

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was set to be the second in a loose trilogy of films. But producer Francis Ford Coppola and director/star Kenneth Branagh wouldn’t quite see eye to eye.

Frank Darabont’s third big screen Stephen King adaptation meanwhile – The Mist – was uncompromising and took around 15 years to get made. But not for expected reasons.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
