Fessenden’s film joins eclectic list of hidden gems from the last year.
From Bloody-Disgusting’s Meagan Navarro: In the digital age, we’re inundated with content constantly. Between endless streaming services and VOD, there’s a wealth of horror available at our fingertips at all times. So much so that it’s tough to keep up. It doesn’t help that the marketing for VOD, limited theatrical, and straight-to-streaming titles don’t have the same budget as major theatrical releases, if at all.
In other words, some of the year’s best offerings can slip through the cracks with ease.
If you’re looking for great horror releases that you might have missed this year, these ten horror movies are among the best of 2019.
A PTSD-suffering field surgeon harvests body parts and uses them to create an entirely new man in his Brooklyn apartment. If that sounds like a modern-day retelling of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, that’s because it is. Only this time, it’s through the lens of indie horror master Larry Fessenden, in his first spin back in the director’s seat in years. The result is a refreshing twist to a familiar story, with surprising new depth and poignancy. Moreover, it continues Fessenden’s penchant for maximizing a minuscule budget to create something far more luxurious in style.
