Larry Fessenden has been writing, producing, and directing genre films for years, but his upcoming retelling of Mary Shelley’s literary classic, Frankenstein, might be his most anticipated yet.
In Depraved, Alex (Owen Campbell) leaves his girlfriend Lucy (Chloë Levine) after an emotional night; walking the streets alone to get home. From out of nowhere, he is stabbed in a frenzied attack. With the life draining out of him, he awakes to find he is the brain in a body he does not recognize. This creature has been brought into consciousness by Henry (David Call); a brilliant field surgeon suffering from PTSD after two tours in the Mideast. Henry is increasingly consumed with remorse over what he’s done, and when the creature finally discovers a video documenting his own origin, he goes on a rampage that reverberates through the group and tragedy befalls them all.
Depraved is set to have its world premiere on Wednesday, March 20th at What the Fest!? 2019. We’ll have a full review for you in the near future, but until then, have a look at the debut teaser below.
A disillusioned field surgeon suffering from PTSD makes a man out of body parts and brings him to life in a Brooklyn loft.
