Default American Rickshaw (1989) [Cauldron Films]

The way that is the way is not the ordinary way…

After a stripper tricks him into filming a sex tape, Scott Edwards (Olympic Gold Medalist Mitch Gaylord), a Miami rickshaw runner,* becomes embroiled in the murder of an evangelist’s son when he inadvertently takes the wrong video tape. With the help of the stripper and an Asian witch, Edwards sets out to clear his name while avoiding the assassin dead set on retrieving the video tape.

Directed by Italian genre legend Sergio Martino (All the Colors of the Dark) and Written by Sauro Scavolini (A Man Called Blade) with a story by Roberto Leone (Santa Sangre) this late 80’s Miami-lensed Action/Horror hybrid has only ever been available on VHS in the US in a muddy full screen presentation.*Featuring all of the action, nudity and bizarre practical effects you can handle, Cauldron Films is proud to present American Rickshaw (aka American Tiger / American risciò),* in all of its sun drenched glory, with a brand new 2k scan sourced from the original camera negative as their inaugural release!* *

Starring*Mitchell Gaylord, Daniel Greene (Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Me, Myself and Irene, Hands of Steel), Victoria Prouty, and Donald Pleasance (Halloween, *Freakmaker)

Sergio Martino.......thought it could use it's own thread.

Blind buy despite hearing that it's not Martino's best. But I couldn't pass up the opportunity to be one of the 1,000 owners of this first-time release by a "new" horror boutique(?). Interested to see how their restoration looks with all of their exclusive extras.

Hopefully Cauldron ends up being good in their blu-ray releases. Don't want another Blue Underground -- limited releases that are getting better re-distributions (i.e. Deep Red by Arrow, Gates of Hell by Scorpion Releasing, etc.) or just upgrading the format on the same 5-6 movies or so.
