Theories on what the Frankenstein story 'means' are everywhere. In this episode I explore two. First up it's the controversy the film and book caused amongst Christians as they felt it was an affront to God. And I also look into the often discussed idea that films like Bride of Frankenstein are really just allegory's exploring homosexuality.

Part three in a four part exploration of the Frankenstein Myth.

Fire up the Tesla coils! It's time to revisit a horror icon that to be frank with you, I've found kind of boring up until recently. But when I recently re-discovered these two Universal classics it reminded me of the horror and heartbreak of Frankenstein.

Oh, it's fun watching all these spooky ghost stories and creepy movies about hauntings but there's one fundamental question that creeps behind it all: do ghosts actually exist? And if so, in what way do they fit into a Christian worldview? Join me as I unpack the ghosts of the Bible, and look at the different views on ghosts from Catholics to Evangelical Protestants.

What should we make of the bizarre claims of somereligious believers that they have experienced the spontaneous wounds of Christ in their bodies? Are they legit, are they liars, or is this little more than spiritual psychoplasmics?

(This is Part Two in a two part episode. To hear the review of David Cronenberg's The Brood, listen to the previous episode).

"Witchcraft" by Alan Hawkshaw
