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 »

Ted Mikels is one of the worst living directors. Among the supremely awful films Mr. Mikels has made are "Astro Zombies", "Girl in Gold Boots" (in the IMDb Bottom 100 but perhaps his best film!), "Corpse Grinders" and "Blood Orgy of the She-Devils". It's odd, though, that his horrible films of the 1960s and 70s are actually MUCH better than his recent productions. You would think that he would have been bound to improve with practice, but this is not the case. In recent years, Mikels has made some direct to DVD films that feature even worse production values than his older films--films that don't even seem to attempt to be watchable or professional. I've recently watched two of them, "Cauldron: Baptism of Blood" (2004) and "Apartheid Slave-Women's Justice" (1997). They don't appear to have much in the way of scripts, the dialog seems unrehearsed and random and the production values are WORSE than most YouTube videos--and to save costs, Mikels himself appears in the films.

"Cauldron: Baptism of Blood" doesn't have a clear plot. Instead, it seems like a lot of related vignettes shoved together about some sort of devil cult and a woman who wins a talent contest. A witch leads not only a group of scantily clad women in human sacrifices but uses black magic to kill and predict the future. Some of these black magic ceremonies are absolutely hilarious and look more like interviews for "Solid Gold" dancers than devil shenanigans! And, in the middle of all this, a women fire eater randomly performs! This goes on and on and on--as if it will never end and as if Mikels never heard the term 'editing'. This silly dance routine is repeated several times throughout the film and probably accounts for about 50% of the film!! During many of these scenes the most ludicrous computerized devil appears--one you just have to see to believe!

As for the talent show plot, it's supposed to be something like "American Idol"--this is, if all the guests were as talented as William Hung. When a particularly talentless woman wins, she is aided by Satan--who then wants her soul in exchange. So, it's up for the cult of "Solid Gold" dancing witches to capture her and initiate her into their weird little dance troop. Can she be saved? And, more importantly, does anyone care?!

Obviously by my description I think this is a terrible film. But is it worth seeing? After all, many bad films are so stupid that they are fun to watch in order to laugh at the ineptitude. Unfortunately, while "Cauldron: Baptism of Blood" is stupid and laughable, it's also not very watchable because of its glacial pace. While the film is over 100 minutes long, it could have easily been trimmed to 55 or 60 minutes. Incessant shots of relatively unattractive ladies in skimpy clothes writhing about isn't my idea of entertainment! Plus, you'd THINK that a film about a devil cult would be entertaining yet Mikels managed to keep this one from having any excitement about it whatsoever....none. Dull and stupid--that's a bad combination.

By the way, IMDb indicates this one is rated R and has nudity. Nope...no nudity in this one, as this could have only improved the film and Mikels appears to have done everything he could to prevent this one from being entertaining!
