Depraved Trailer: Larry Fessenden creates a 21st century Frankenstein
Glass Eye Pix has released the trailer for Depraved, the latest thinking man’s horror movie from cult filmmaker Larry Fessenden (The Last Winter, Wendigo, Habit). Check out the Depraved trailer below, along with new stills in the gallery!!
Shot on the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, veteran genre writer-director Larry Fessenden brings his unique vision of the literary classic in Depraved, 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.
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.
The film is written and directed by Larry Fessenden and produced by Fessenden alongside Chadd Harbold and Jenn Wexler.
Depraved will have its World Premiere as the opening night film of What the Fest!? at the IFC Center in New York City this coming Wednesday, March 20 at 7pm.
