Matthew Saliba Returns to Motion Pictures with Amy's in the Attic

After solidifying his reputation as an award-winning filmmaker specializing in sado-erotic horror with his trilogy of She Was Asking For It, Vampyros Lesbos and Dark Lotus, Montreal filmmaker, Matthew Saliba is putting the "stop-motion photography" technique that has come to define his work as of late on hold and is returning to the "motion picture" roots of his earlier films The Manipulator and the Subservient and Pandora's Paradox.

Saliba, a long-time fan of Italian horror films has written and directed, Amy's in the Attic, a loving homage to the films he admires so dearly complete with plenty of zooms, a psychedelic soundtrack and gratuitous close-ups of J&B scotch bottles! "Amy's in the Attic" stars Kayden Rose (of Vampyros Lesbos and Dark Lotus fame), Lisa Di Capa, Matt Lacas, Chastity Castro, Sebastien Fournier and director Saliba himself. The film tells the story of a group of friends, Amy (Kayden Rose), Barbara (Lisa Di Capa), Shawn (Matt Lacas), Suzy (Chastity Castro) and Mitch (Sebastien Fournier) who gather at their ringleader Alucard's (Matthew Saliba) place one evening for an old fashioned swinger's party. Unfortunately, the party isn't living up to expectations, so Alucard suggests that they play a game. Everyone must write their name down on a piece of paper and place it in his hat. Whomever's name is selected from the hat must be the others' slave for the evening. Needless to say, Amy's name is selected. What starts off as an innocent game of testing one's limits ends in a horrific tragedy involving rape, violence and female degradation.

Amy's in the Attic is Matthew Saliba's sixth film and is tentatively slated for a May 2010 release. For more information on the film, follow Saliba on Facebook at:

In the meantime, feast your eyes on the stunning poster for the film, lovingly hand-painted in the style of '70s Italian horror films. The poster was painted by Montreal artist extraordinaire, Nadim Zaidi whose other work can be seen online at:
