411Mania: DEPRAVED “Amazing performances, excellent direction, this movie is the total package”

From 411 Mania:  I actually got to see this on the big screen, in an actual movie, theatre, during the 2019 edition of the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, where it won the Best in the Fest award. Written and directed by the great Larry Fessenden, it’s a sort of modern riff on the Frankenstein story, where a battle surgeon builds his own man out of various body parts. Yes, we’ve all seen this story before, but how many times have we seen it take place in Brooklyn? Amazing performances, excellent direction, this movie is the total package and is something that you must make an effort to see. It is very, very worth your time. And it’s being released via Shout! Factory’s Scream Factory label, so you know you’ll be getting a badass awesome movie in a terrific home video presentation. See this goddamn movie.

DEPRAVED coming to DVD & Blu-ray! 7 January 2020

Loaded with over two hours of extras and a souvenir booklet,
this deluxe edition from Shout Factory is a MUST-HAVE
for fans of Frankenstein,
Fessenden and Filosophical horror.

ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR #19
“Fessenden’s trademark style of tragic horror shines through.
It’s also his angriest film to date – a natural response from a filmmaker
so concerned with societal ethics who has watched them devolve so quickly.
Joel Wicklund, Chicago Now

ONE OF THE BEST HORROR FILMS OF THE DECADE
“The film is a towering work of art and hands down my

favourite version of this story ever produced.”
— Tim Burr,  BifBoomPop

ONE OF THE 10 BEST HORROR FILMS OF THE YEAR
— Torri Danielle, Pophorror

ONE OF THE TOP 13 HORROR MOVIES OF 2019
“While ’90s American cinema tends to play up the legacies of auteur superpowers like
Tarantino and PTA, Larry Fessenden deserves just as much appreciation …
At once an indictment of technology and the quest to control the natural order,
“Depraved” makes the case that Fessenden should really make movies more often,
because these troubled times benefit from his spooky voice.”
— Eric Kohn, 
Indiewire

ONE OF THE 10 BEST INDIE HORROR FILMS OF THE YEAR
“a bat shit insane take on the story as well, so it breathes new life into an old classic.

Kudos to director and creator Larry Fessenden for pulling off an incredible feat here.” 
 —Jonas Barnes,  brokeassstuart.com

ONE OF THE TOP 19 HORROR MOVIES OF 2019
“This may be Fessesnden’s best film to date and also includes great makeup FX
by Brian Spears and Peter Gerner who are up for a Fangoria Chainsaw Award for their work. Bravo.
 —Larry Dwyer, Horror News Network

ONE OF THE BEST HORROR FILMS OF THE YEAR
“The best modern Frankenstein adaptation by the master of

independent New York horror, Larry Fessenden.”
 —Dr Zais, Geeks of Doom

ONE OF THE 10 BEST HORROR FILMS OF 2019 YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED
“a refreshing twist to a familiar story,

with surprising new depth and poignancy.”
—Megan Navarro, Bloody-Disgusting

The Pale Men talk to horror maestro ERIC RED about “LITTLE NASTIES”

Glenn McQuaid and Larry Fessenden had a few questions for Horror vet ERIC RED on the eve of the launch of his TALE FROM BEYOND THE PALE “Little Nasties” on the TALES Podcast.

PALE MEN: Prior to working on Little Nasties, What was your experience of audio drama?
 
ERIC RED: Zero.  However, my grandfather used to tell me about the suspense radio shows he listened to as a child, like Lights Out, and how they fired his imagination, so through him I saw what the medium could do.  That’s why I though it was such a brilliant idea for Larry and Glenn to bring back the format for our modern age in Tales From Beyond The Pale.

PM: I notice a fine ear for sound design and music in your film work, Body Parts has some really satisfying sound design and foley in the mix, did it feel like a natural step to let go of visuals and concentrate solely on audio?
 
ER: Thanks.  I’ve always been attentive of the storytelling use of sound in my films.  It’s part of any filmmaker’s toolbox.  Sound subliminally enhances the visuals of a movie in powerful ways that can be much more effective than music.  I often write sound effects in my screenplays and play certain scenes that way for that reason.
 
PM: Writing the script for Little Nasties was an interesting challenge because stylistically it had to be dialogue down one side of the page and sounds effects down the other—that’s it!  Those were the elements available to work with to tell the story.
 
ER: In a movie, the director gives the audience the pictures and everybody basically sees the same film.  But a radio show relies exclusively on dialogue and sound effects to create pictures for the listener, who bring his or her own personal mental images to the audio play.  This way, the audience uses their imagination and actively interfaces with the tale, rather than just sitting back and letting the story wash over them like they do in a movie.   That was what was exciting about the project for me. A lot of credit goes to Glenn McQuaid who made a big contribution to the show actually creating and executing the sound design in the script. 
 
PM: As well as film, you’ve now got seven (I believe) novels under your belt and there’s the comic book work too, do you have a preferred medium you like to work in or do you enjoy the parameters of each format?
 
ER: I’m a storyteller.   The different story delivery systems like movies, books, comics and radio shows each have their own opportunities for a storyteller.   But the older I get, the more fun it is to let the audience use their imagination where it is not how you show it, it’s how you don’t show it.

PM: Jill Zarin is an absolute hoot in Little Nasties and was great fun to work with in the studio, how did you come to know and work with her? 
 
ER: I Met Jill the same year we did the radio show, when she was cast in a small film I directed and we became friends.  She comes out of reality TV starring on TV’s Real Housewives of New York, so Jill knew how to improvise and think on her feet on camera; she was used to being spontaneous as a performer because of the requirements of reality TV, but unlike many of the people who star in those shows, Jill is a substantial person and a good human being.  She’s a natural actress with a strong, warm, funny, iconic New York personality and vocal delivery.  Because the voice was everything in the radio show, I immediately thought of her for the stage mother having just worked with her and knowing what she could do.  We all loved what Jill brought to the part, carrying the show with her energetic down-to-earth personality.  

PM: And finally, we love that you use Jack Ketchum in your piece.  How did you come to know him?
 
ER: Dallas (Jack Ketchum was his author pseudonym) was probably my oldest friend, dating back in the late 70s when we met in Greece.  We were both New Yorkers then, when he was just becoming a novelist and I was becoming a screenwriter and director.  Dallas was one of my favorite people, and I thought it would be fun for him to play the sinister beauty contest official; Dallas being Dallas, he tackled the transgressive role fearlessly and didn’t hold back.  He sadly passed a few years ago, and I was grateful we had the fun experience of this show as a capper to our relationship.
 
One of my favorite things about Little Nasties was the unusual ensemble of people who were involved.  We had a TV New York Housewife playing alongside a legendary horror author in a radio show produced by two brilliant independent filmmakers that I got to write and direct.  A unique, diverse, talented group of people became ingredients in a special cocktail that, to my creative taste buds, is absolutely delicious.  
 
Little Nasties was a fairly big, complicated little radio show production that included a large cast of children, so big props to Larry Fessenden for pulling it all together.  I’m still amazed at all we got done.
