The film Abrakadabra, directed by brothers Luciano and Nicolás Onetti, will world premiere at the upcoming SITGES Film Festival in October where it will compete in the “Panorama Fantàstic” and “Blood Window” categories. It was one of the 7 films selected to participate in “Upcoming Fantastic Films” at Cannes Film Festival this year.
Abrakadabra is the fourth film by the Onetti brothers and closes the “giallo” trilogy that began with Sonno Profondo (2013) and Francesca (2015). I absolutely loved the first two films in the trilogy and look forward to the final entry. You can check out the film's trailer below.
In the film, “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 and why seeks to involve him before it is too late…
