Depraved may not take you anywhere that you haven't been before, but it might leave you with a renewed appreciation for Shelley's mythic story.

"Depraved" is smart in its commentary on everything from the evils of the pharmaceuticals industry to the terrors of PTSD, but there's real heart and empathy here too.

[A] film that is serious but not pretentious, working best when it stays in the laboratory. It will be welcomed by the director's fans, and may expand that number somewhat in its limited theatrical release.

The film moves Mary Shelley's story two centuries into the future, and all it's got to add is that the guys who robbed graves and played god would, if they were alive today, be immature jerks.
