Just out on special-edition Blu-ray from Shout! Factory, Larry Fessenden’s DEPRAVED is a fascinating and acclaimed variation on the Frankenstein theme, one he discusses in an exclusive excerpt from the disc’s bonus features that you can see after the jump.
Writer/director Chad Crawford Kinkle proves his much-lauded JUG FACE was no fluke with this harrowing sophomore effort.
For the past eight years, Glass Eye Pix topper Larry Fessenden (DEPRAVED, WENDIGO) and filmmaker Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD) have been creating fear for your ears with the horror audio anthology TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE. Today, they’ve launched the series as a free podcast, and RUE MORGUE spoke with them about the project.
In his latest feature, Fessenden gives a contemporary spin on the Frankenstein tale taking the Gothic trappings and setting to modern day Brooklyn and New York.
The release of DEPRAVED this week reminds us how long it’s been since Larry Fessenden has brought one of his own stories to the screen, how much he’s been missed and how vital his personal point of view on the genre continues to be.
