  • Houston, TX (1888PressRelease) April 22, 2015 - Her stellar cast includes not only Vannessa Vasquez, star of Hulu Network's original series "East Los High" and Eric Martinez of AMC's "Breaking Bad" but also indie film sweetheart Melissa Mars.

    Mars got her start in the entertainment industry in her home country of France as a pop singer. Since then, Mars has become a part of the independent film scene in the United States filming roles in movies like The Cabining and Curse of Mesopotamia. Her love for independent films comes from what she calls the "human element" of production.

    "We obviously don't make these movies for the money but for the sake of the story that we feel we absolutely need to tell and share," Mars said. "Most of the time, the director and producers invest all of their money and time to make that story come out on the big screen, and I respect that devotion so much; it makes me also want to give everything I can."

    Mars plays Detective Salinas, one of the investigators of a grisly crime scene. She soon finds out that Mila Sweeney, a forensic psychologist, was kidnapped and tortured by two deranged serial killers, Dale Rogers and Hersey Igor. However, Mila escaped to exact revenge against her captors.

    Loredo personally asked Mars to send a tape in auditioning for the role of Salinas, which she taped herself and sent in after getting back to Los Angeles after filming her role in the upcoming film Assassin's Game with Tom Sizemore and Vivica A. Fox. Two days later, Loredo called Mars to welcome her onboard.

    Sorrow premieres in Houston, Texas and will be screened in Atlanta, Georgia; Charlotte, North Carolina; and twice in New York, New York (at the Quad Cinema and the Anthology Film Archives). Loredo and members of the cast will be in attendance to participate in Q&A sessions after each screening. Mars is optimistic horror film fans will enjoy Sorrow.

    "I feel positive that audiences will be receptive to Loredo's movie and all the hard work that has been put into it," Mars said. "This story is not only based on true events but also generates so much horror, fright and discomfort. I think horror fans will love it."
