Monique GATA Dupree joins the cast of Epitaph: Bread and Salt


Epitaph for a Scream Queen: Super Sexy Scream Siren Joins Epitaph: Bread and Salt

Chicago, Illinois – December 08, 2010 – Monique Dupree, the first black scream queen and easily the sexiest, has signed on to play Lilith in the comic-based action horror movie “Epitaph: Bread and Salt” ( ).

Nathyn Brendan Masters new movie “Epitaph: Bread and Salt” a prequel to the “Epitaph” and “Victor Locke: Demon Hunter” comic books has added a new face to the the film’s list of horror hotties. Scream queen Monique Dupree has signed on to play Lilith, the succubus and demoness of Jewish mythology.

The “Sisterhood of Lilith” is just one of the evil cults seeking to dominate the world in the Night Phoenix Press Universe and Chicago is one of the bigger battlegrounds. The Sisterhood plans to set things in motion for the demoness Lilith to come back to earth, but Lilith herself was never written into the current movie and had only been slated for appearances in dream sequences in the upcoming “Victor Locke: Demon Hunter” and “Night Phoenix” comics.

“It’s crazy because Lilth isn’t an ordinary woman and ordinary women certainly don’t have the kind of body Lilith has, but Monique does. It’s so weird.” says Masters. Dupree is the biggest name on the project which boast a bevy Chicago based screaming beauties including “Afraid of Sunrise” actress and “Comic Book Divas” model Kelsey Zukowski, “Trick or Eat’s” Heather Dorff and Leena Kurishingal of “Fast Zombies with Guns” and “The Long December” fame.

Masters considered Dupree for the character of Atraria, a.k.a Nightevil, the role that went to actress Anita Nicole Brown. “We spoke early on about the film, but just in passing. I knew she had the body for the Lilith, but the character hadn’t been written into the script. The only role she could play was Nightevil, but the logistics just didn’t work for a project at this budget and honestly she really would’ve been overkill for it, so I never her made the offer as there really was no place for her save for a bit part or featured extra, but now everything has fallen into place.”

A scene from a future comic book, where Lilith appears to Victor in a dream and tries to seduce and kill him, will be rewritten as a sequence for the film. “Epitaph: Bread and Salt” is currently shooting in Chicago’s Edgewater and Old Town Neighborhoods. The Dupree scene is currently slated to shoot early next 2011.

Currently Master’s film has been accepted to crowd funding site Kickstarter which Master’s plans to use the funds for up keep of the post-production pipelines.
