About Cauldron Films….
Along with ABRAKADABRA and AMERICAN RICKSHAW, Cauldron plans to release several films on Blu-ray this year, including many that have never had a proper home video release in the US, some of which have only ever been released on VHS if at all! Cauldron has a full slate of 70s and 80s Cult Films in the works using the best available materials to showcase films from Spaghetti Westerns, Giallo, Horror, Action, and more, ALL with the collector in mind!
Thirty-Five years after his father is tragically killed during a magic trick gone wrong, Lorenzo’s own magic act is suddenly derailed by a series of gruesome magic themed murders. Struggling to prove his innocence, he begins to unravel the mystery that leads him through an intricate, bloody trail all the way back to his father’s demise.
Filled with a pulsing Goblin-esque soundtrack, 70’s atmosphere and all the earmarks of a classic Giallo, ABRAKADABRA at once pays homage to the bloody films of Dario Argento and Sergio Martino, while firmly taking its own place in the genre alongside its companion films in the Onetti Brothers’s Giallo Trilogy: FRANCESCA and SONNO PROFONDO

The way that is the way is not the ordinary way…
After a stripper tricks him into filming a sex tape, Scott Edwards (Olympic Gold Medalist Mitch Gaylord), a Miami rickshaw runner, becomes embroiled in the murder of an evangelist’s son when he inadvertently takes the wrong video tape. With the help of the stripper and an Asian witch, Edwards sets out to clear his name while avoiding the assassin dead set on retrieving the video tape.
Directed by Italian genre legend Sergio Martino (All the Colors of the Dark) and Written by Sauro Scavolini (A Man Called Blade) with a story by Roberto Leone (Santa Sangre) this late 80’s Miami-lensed Action/Horror hybrid has only ever been available on VHS in the US in a muddy full screen presentation.
