[Teaser] Larry Fessenden Builds His Own Frankenstein in ‘Depraved’



Just in time for the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”, veteran genre writer-director Larry Fessenden brings his own unique vision of the literary classic to the operating table in Depraved, which is set to open this year’s What the Fest?! on March 20.

Set in modern Brooklyn, this meditative reimagining of the novel explores the crisis of masculinity and ideas about loneliness, memory and the subtle psychological shocks that shape us as individuals. It’s also executive produced by Joe Swanberg (V/H/S) and produced by Jenn Wexler (The Ranger).

In the film…

“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, Adam (Alex Breaux), has been brought into consciousness by Henry (David Call), a brilliant field surgeon suffering from PTSD after two tours in the Mideast, and his accomplice Polidori (Joshua Leonard), a predator determined to cash in on the experiment that brought Adam to life. Henry is increasingly consumed with remorse over what he’s done and when Adam finally discovers a video documenting his own origin, he goes on a rampage that reverberates through the group and tragedy befalls them all.”
