006: Sitting On The Wrong Side Of Darkness

This month we wade into the murky world of monsters, starting with a story about some familiar names that were very misunderstood.

This episode kicks off our four-part monster month. Monsters have a special place in storytelling. They're the cornerstone of how we tell stories. This episode we look at a time when things didn't go quite their way when Universal Pictures dropped the ball trying to adapt them all into their Dark Universe.

On Pathfinder this week you'll find out why Count Dracula, Dr Jekyll, and The Mummy lost their way only to become action film stars, when they needed something far smaller and intimate to win over audiences.

Come back next week for part two of Monster Month.
