(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

DEPRAVED is a low-budget reframing of FRANKENSTEIN. The setting is the 21st century for a violent envisioning with a color palette of reds and yellows. The audience sees the story unfolding and then maps the pieces into the original story. For example, in this version the character of Henry is Adam's friend and Polidori is financing the project. The creature is the product of drugs and medicine. Once the viewer gets into the story he can get into seeing this as an oddly faithful retelling of the Shelley novel. It is a downer but still fairly enjoyable on another level. Rating: low +2 (-4 to +4).
