Brothers Luciano and Nicolás Onetti have graced the pages of Modern Horrors more than once. We first came upon them with their modern giallo, Francesca, back in 2015 and again with 2017’s What the Waters Left Behind.

That said, if you bleed giallo, boy are you in for a treat. Check out the debut trailer below.
Abrakadabra will make its world premiere at the upcoming SITGES Film Festival in October where it will compete in the “Panorama Fantàstic” and “Blood Window” categories.
