Spellcaster is part of the Vinegar Syndrome Archive collection, celebrating forgotten cinematic oddities from the video store era. This collection was inspired by our own video store, The Archive in Bridgeport, CT.
Unique to this line, each hand numbered limited edition release will come fitted in a specially designed, bottom loading VHS inspired slipcase, while also including a double-sided poster.
These releases will ONLY be available on our website and at participating brick and mortar retailers. Absolutely no other online stores will be stocking them. This release is strictly limited to 4,000 units and will never be re-released in another version.
A group of strangers have been invited to partake in a promotional, televised treasure hunt at a remote Italian castle, with the winner walking away with a million dollar fortune. But the old gothic building has some diabolical tricks up its sleeve and it’s not long before the guests begin to fall victim to its demonic secrets, all while the surviving guests begin to come up with creative - and deadly - ways to try and locate the hidden treasure…
One of the series of ‘castle’ films made in the mid 80s by notorious exploitation producer Charles Band (Puppet Master), Rafal Zielinski’s SPELLCASTER is a creature effect filled supernatural horror film starring 80s new wave music icon, Adam Ant (Lead Singer: Adam and the Ants), legendary 80s radio personality, Richard Blade, alongside Gail O’Grady (TV’s NYPD BLUE). Photographed by Fulci’s regular DP, Sergio Salvati (The Beyond, Zombie), Vinegar Syndrome Archive presents SPELLCASTER newly restored in 2K and on Blu-ray for the first time.
