Passed 201 year since published "Frankenstein". Many filmmakers have tried to adapt the basics of the novel trying to maintain respect for the original work, at the same time using as workarounds, so adding something innovative, matching the mood and atmosphere of any new project. "Perverse" is not is something entirely new, choosing a low-budget way of modern understanding of a nightmare Mary Shelley. Gothic Thriller filmed with limited resources and, perhaps, the efforts are commendable, given that the Director clearly has something to say about humanity in General. The however, alas, the "Perverse" weak and boring — project gets the cinematic acumen.

"Depraved" tells the story of the military doctor who wants to raise a man. This surgeon Henry teams up with Dr. Polidori (Oh, these tselochki!), heir to a pharmaceutical Empire, and just a nice guy. Friend Henry a Elizabeth skeptical, but still helps the couple. Departing from tradition, this version of "Frankenstein" is told not from the point of view of mad scientists. The story focuses on "the monster" Adam, is made of different kinds of bodies. From walking corpse creation is gradually turning into the person, let and defective, aware of the horror of his own existence.

The film, alas, is not is visually stunning or clever adaptation of "Frankenstein". There are no or something conceptually interesting or graceful. It seems that it was one — to convey the story of Shelley in a modern world where the super-science way to exist on the attic in drunken apartments. However, the human quality stepped forward. In contrast the original works of Henry stays with its offspring. Not because he loves it, and because the way of the modern world. Necromancy has its consequences. Everyone in this incident to Adam plays a role: Henry — the father who never really wants to be burdened with such a fate, and Polidori — cool uncle who loves to have fun. Henry and Polidori, according to the authors of the film, not genius. Maybe they and great scientists, but psychologically, they are immature, immature people can only educate immature creation. "Perverse" sucked out of "Frankenstein" so the whole of romance replaces disappointment pity existential emptiness. Alas, to step movie for the limit of the inadequacy of the knights of the modern science is not found.

Otherwise, "Perverse" is a weak alloy of science fiction and horror. The filmmakers tried to give the film a special modern look with superimposed digital effects, focusing on the ordinariness of the situation, so as not to challenge the point of view on material. Very few of the facts in the "Wicked" methods of influence on the emotional state of the viewer. To the end of the film, the script generally repeats the classics of the genre and, hell, it's very sad, because if the characters in the film have learned from the same "Frankenstein" at least some lessons, then observe the tape would be interesting.

It is possible that "Wicked" should be considered portable — stories parenthood how young people ready to real responsibility. Hardly need to bring this attention — metaphor is simple and boring, but when the characters speculate about this final act, it becomes clear that the film simply has nothing to offer. Probably, this story of "Frankenstein" is not follow the traditions blindly, but it is not enough nuances: where James Whale in the film adaptation of 1931 was theatricality, and Kenneth Branagh in 1994 — drama, from Fessenden in "Wicked" only the immaturity and replays.
