IFC Midnight announced today that it has acquired the U.S. rights to Larry Fessenden‘s modern Brooklyn-set Frankenstein adaptation, Depraved.



Starring David Call (The Sinner), Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project), Alex Breaux (Bushwick), Ana Kayne (Another Earth), Chloë Levine (The Transfiguration, The Ranger), and Addison Timlin (The Town That Dreaded Sundown),  the film made its world premiered in March at the IFC Center’s WhatTheFest?! and can next be seen at The Overlook Film Festival in New Orleans, before making its international premiere at Sydney Film Festival next month.

Fessenden, who heads the celebrated indie horror production house Glass Eye Pix, wrote the film as well as produced alongside Jenn Wexler and Chadd Harbold. Joe Swanberg, Edwin Linker, and Peter Gilbert served as executive producers for Forager Film Company and Andrew Mer was co-executive producer. No stranger to genre fans, Larry Fessenden has been a producer and actor on many break-out genre films from the past decade that have premiered at SXSW, Tribeca, Fantastic Fest and Sundance. Depraved marks his bold return to the director’s seat.

I am truly jazzed to partner up again with IFC; they handle my whole canon of films and it feels like home. I look forward to getting this very personal monster movie out to the public in time for the Halloween season. Let’s do this!” said Fessenden.

The deal for the film was negotiated by Adam Koehler, Acquisitions Coordinator at IFC Films/Sundance Selects/IFC Midnight and Hugues Barbier, Justin Timms, and Joe Yanick of Yellow Veil Pictures on behalf of the filmmakers.

Depraved is set to be released this Fall from IFC Midnight.
