Spellcaster is a 1992 American film starring Adam Ant.

Plot[edit]

Winning a trip to Italy through a contest, Jackie (O'Grady) and her brother Tom (Pruett) join other winners Myrna (Demson), Yvette (Lind), Terri (Ulrich), Harlan (Zorek) and Tony (Modugno). They settle into the rooms of an old castle, together with Cassandra (Bailey), a rock star playing along in the contest. Wanting to get a leg up on each other, they all try to sneak out and find the prize before it starts, to no avail. When the contest begins, they start to die one-by-one from a mysterious source within the castle. Figuring that evil forces are at work, the remaining members race to stop the assailant from finishing their work.

Production[edit]

The film was originally made in 1987 but due to the studio's financial shortcomings, release was held back until 1992. Also, Dennis Paoli replaced Ed Naha as a writer at the last minute.

Release[edit]

The movie was released on VHS and Laserdisc in the spring of 1992 by Columbia TriStar Home Video. The movie has never been released on DVD, but in 2007, MGM aired a widescreen version of the film on Showtime and renewed the copyrights to the film, fueling speculation that a DVD release may be possible in the near future.
