BREAKING NEWS: EROTICIDE will hold its INDIAN PREMIERE on Sunday, February 2nd at the 2014 DELHI FETISH FILM FETIVAL! This marks the fact that on that day, EROTICIDE will have officially screened on 3 different continents! 

Tickets for HORRORITCA presented by All Things Horror go on sale today!

What’s HORRORITCA you ask?

Why, it’s only the event that’s hosting the US PREMIERE of EROTICIDE!

The event takes place on Saturday, February 8th in Somerville, MA and will also feature a triple-bill of LEGITIMATE byIzzy Lee and PINUP DOLLS ON ICE.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend the event but don’t let that stop you from attending if you’re in the area.

I would greatly appreciate any recap of how the film goes over. 🙂

The verdict is in! EROTICIDE’s Swedish Premiere was a huge success! So much so that a complete retrospective on my work is being planned as well as an interview with them!

The Tildaholm Film Society posted a little write-up on their site. The review is in Swedish, mind you, but it basically translates as follows:

“Matthew Saliba from Canada send us a promo DVD of his latest film. What an awesome movie! A little erotic atmosphere with a rather provocative story. Very good acting and the story was being told provocative in a good way. Thought it was nice they spoke both French and English in the film.”

Thank you all for your incredible support. I think it’s safe to say that EROTICIDE is by far the biggest critical and commercial success I’ve ever had as a filmmaker and it’s so incredibly gratifying that something so personal is going over so well and really resonating with audiences around the world.

This is starting to become a daily habit wherein I announce yet another country hosting a premiere of my latest work, EROTICIDE. But here we go again! 🙂

EROTICIDE has been accepted into the 2014 Lisbon Fetish Film Festival and will have its Portuguese Premiere there on Friday, May 9th!

Portugal is now the 8th country to host a premiere of EROTICIDE and the 13th overall to screen a Sinema Saliba production.

Congrats to the entire cast and crew of the film and thank you all for your incredible support!

It’s a brand new year and with it comes a brand new EROTICIDE review.

This one comes to us from John Ginder over at A Horror-Fying Blog who dictated an audio review of the film and a very glowing one at that.

You can listen to the review here!

Thank you so much, John!
