March 19, 2020

Written by DanXIII

Daniel XIII; the result of an arcane ritual involving a King Diamond album, a box of Count Chocula, and a copy of Swank magazine, is a screenwriter, director, producer, actor, artist, and reviewer of fright flicks…Who hates ya baby?

Hey boils n’ ghouls! Yours cruelly has received wicked word that there is a new kid on the beastly block… namely Cauldron films, and these cats n creeps are poised to come out of the ghoulish gate screamin’ like a banshee!

Check out the skinny on their deadly duo of inaugural releases soon to play out before your eerie eyeballs!



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. Featuring all of the action, nudity and bizarre practical effects you can handle, Cauldron Films is proud to present American Rickshaw (aka American Tiger / American risciò),  in all of its sun drenched glory, with a brand new 2k scan sourced from the original camera negative as their inaugural release!
