Frankenstein: 10 Movies With An Original Twist On The Horror Classic

The most recent release on the list is independent horror darling Larry Fessenden’s 2019 take on the monster. In his 1991 debut feature No Telling, Fessenden dances with the idea of a Frankenstein-like scientist, and now almost 30 years later, he tackles the subject matter head-on. Depraved follows a man stricken with PTSD as he tries to cope by working in a laboratory and sewing a human together. Possibly the lowest budgeted film on the list, there is a meta-layer to the filmmaking with it being a do-it-yourself sort of effort. It’s a strange, and interesting film that can be seen streaming on Hulu right now.

Other Horror Movie Remakes Rob Zombie Should Direct

… his appreciation for that era of cinema might lend him to be an excellent choice for another Dark Universe movie like Frankenstein, which was originally directed by James Whale in 1931 and starred Boris Karloff as The Monster.Though there have been modern interpretations, such as Larry Fessenden’s Depraved in 2019, Zombie would certainly bring more horror (and blood) to the Monster’s tale. It would be even more fascinating if he cast someone like Ken Foree, with whom he’s collaborated previously in The Lords of Salem. The actor’s 6’5″ stature would be imposing and bring some smart social commentary, as Frankenstein’s monster is traditionally played by white actors.

Beyond The Void Podcast: DEPRAVED “Top 15 Horror Films Of 2019”

15. DEPRAVED

A veteran suffering from PTSD assembles a monster from various body parts and brings it back to life. Larry Fessenden is a classic name in the horror genre and created one of my all time favorite vampire movies in Habit. This is his take on the Frankenstein legend and has that same real world drama and horror mesh that made Habit so good. It’s nice to see him back and doing his thing in really the way that only he can. Great movie.

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.

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

favourite version of this story ever produced.”

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
