Trivia

Apparently producer/director Ted V. Mikels didn't have enough money to print out copies of the script, so it was up to cast and crew members to print out copies on their own in order for them to have any clue as to what the movie was about. See more »

Pointless Film That Drags On For No Reason
6 October 2016 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Cauldron: Baptism of Blood (2004)

BOMB (out of 4)

Here's another Ted V. Mikels films. I really enjoy listening to interviews with Mikels as he seems like a fun and great guy but sadly his movies are another thing. His career has been a rather amazing one and the fact that he has been able to continue making movies through all these decades is reason enough for him to be an exploitation level.

With that said, his film and especially his later days ones are pretty awful with very few of them being worth watching. This one here is certainly among the worst I've seen from the director. The story line basically seals with a coven of witches who worship a rather bizarre demon creature. Throughout a series of vignettes we see various people whose lives are destroyed because of their connection to this group.

There's about twenty-minutes worth of story here but what kills this movie and so many other Mikels films is the fact that it clocks in at 100-minutes. Why the director feels the need to drag these movies out for so long is something that I've never understood but who wants to watch an exploitation movie that drags on for no reason? Every single scene in this movie just drags on for no purpose. The scenes certainly aren't expanding on a plot. There's no exploitation being added. More times than not it's just really bland and boring dialogue that drags for no purpose.

If there was graphic violence or a ton of nudity being thrown around then I might understand the long running time but we get none of that. You've basically got a PG-rated horror film and it's quite awful. I'm sure Mikels casts his friends and other people he knows and I'm sure he makes these movies for fun. Sadly, they're not very fun to watch for the viewer and CAULDRON: BAPTISM OF BLOOD is one of the worst.
