The National Trust property Waddesdon Manor features in the latest Frankenstein horror movie starring Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy.

Several scenes from the spooky movie, which will be called Victor Frankenstein and scheduled to be out on the cinema circuit on December 4, were shot at Waddesdon and you can see the Manor 52 seconds into the trailer.
