« DARK LOTUS by Matthew Saliba
Matthew Saliba's DARK LOTUS is the third and final entry in the "Sado-Erotic Trilogy", a series of films characterized by their unique use of still images to tell a story.
After the death of his wife, Dr. Orlof (John M. Thomas) attempts to grow himself a new lover (Kayden Rose) in the womb of his deceased beloved. Midway through the process, however, he is confronted by a mob of morally outraged villagers, who along with their leader (Martin Plouffe) brutally attack and murder the doctor. Satisfied with their efforts, the mob leaves without realizing that while they may have been successful in dispatching the good doctor, they failed to kill his experiment and as such, will learn the hard way that Hell hath no fury as a lover scorned!
DARK LOTUS is a sado-surreal film noir shot in sumptuous black-and-white and tinted blue to create a 1920s silent film aesthetic. The film stars Kayden Rose (the stunningly beautiful actress who played Morpho in VAMPYROS LESBOS), Martin Plouffe (legendary star of Izabel Grondin films such as CAVIAR and ASPIRALUX) and John M. Thomas (the iconic star of Saliba's earlier shorts, THE MANIPULATOR AND THE SUBSERVIENT and PANDORA'S PARADOX).»http://www.myspace.com/frankensteinunlimited
