Horror specialists the Onetti Brothers close out their giallo trilogy that began with SONNO PROFONDO and FRANCESCA with a movie that will soon be visible in two venues.
Directed by Luciano and Nicolás Onetti from a script they wrote with Carlos Goitia, ABRAKADABRA will have its exclusive North American premiere this Saturday, April 25 on YouTube’s “Watch Movies Now!” channel; you’ll be able to see it at this link. The actors and crew will be answering questions live while the film plays out. ABRAKADABRA will also be out around May 12 on a limited-edition (1,000 copies) Blu-ray from Cauldron Films that includes a behind-the-scenes featurette, postcards with promotional artwork, a CD soundtrack of Luciano Onetti’s score and more; it can be pre-ordered here.
ABRAKADABRA stars Germán Baudino, María Eugenia Rigón, Clara Kovacic, Ivi Brickell, Gustavo D´Alessandro, Raúl Gederlini and Pablo Vilela. The synopsis: “ ‘Dante the Great,’ a prestigious magician, accidentally dies during a risky magic trick. Thirty-five years later his son Lorenzo, also a magician, presents a magic show in one of the most important theaters in the city. From then on, a series of murders will begin to take place and will attempt to incriminate him. Lorenzo must discover who seeks to involve him and why before it is too late.”
