Fessenden’s Depraved: Making Frankenstein in a Brooklyn Loft (2019)
NAME OF FILM: FESSENDEN‚ÄÔS DEPRAVED: MAKING FRANKENSTEIN IN A BROOKLYN LOFT (2019)
DIRECTOR(S): Larry Fessenden
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: With the release of Larry Fessenden’s DEPRAVED, horror fans have finally seen a new film from one of New York City’s, let alone that of the horror genre as a whole, most influential indie filmmaking legends, his first since 2013’s BENEATH. But for Fessenden himself, the journey to get his audacious and Brooklyn-set modernization of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN made has taken much longer and proven the values of both dedication and determination. In this feature-length documentary, Fessenden offers an intimate look at bringing his most ambitious passion project yet to life. It’s an all-access dive into one of 2019’s best horror films, and BHFF will have Fessenden himself on hand to break DEPRAVED’s production story down even further. Frankly, it doesn’t get more authentically “Brooklyn Horror” than this.
