“GORGEOUS … a master class in DIY horror filmmaking.” – Meagan Navarro, Bloody-Disgusting
The legend of Frankenstein gets a provocative modern update in this stylishly disturbing film from indie horror master Larry Fessenden (Beneath). Suffering from PTSD following his stint as an army medic, Henry (David Call, The Sinner) now works feverishly in his Brooklyn laboratory to forget the death he witnessed overseas … by creating life in the form of a man cobbled together from body parts. After he procures a brain from an unwitting victim, his creation — Adam (Alex Breaux, When They See Us) — is born. Soon, it becomes apparent that giving life to Adam was the easy part, and teaching him how to live in a dark and troubled world may be perilous. A complex, emotionally shattering tale about what it means to be human, Depraved re-imagines Mary Shelley’s immortal fable as a modern-day tale of terror.
