Heralded genre-bender Larry Fessenden returns with his brilliant reimagining of the Frankenstein myth (shot on the 200th anniversary of the novel’s publication) in which a PTSD-riddled field surgeon deep in the heart of Brooklyn decides to reconstruct an unsuspecting man out of spare body parts. A film of beauty, both creatively and performed, DEPRAVED is anything but what the title suggests. This is an incredibly thoughtful, original horror parable with a strong sense of morality and unwavering compassion that is rare these days and which truly presents a special moment in the lineage of a beloved movie monster, as Fessenden may have crafted the best take on Frankenstein since Mary Shelley herself.
Preceded by the short film:
CATERPILLARPLASTY (Directed by David Barlow-Krelina): Fusing elements of Kafka and Kubrick, this is a prescient, grotesque sci-fi satire that lifts plastic surgery to another level. South Florida Premiere!
