Magic

Magic

Directed by Richard Attenborough

Anthony Hopkins plays a ventriloquist whose dummy has a murderous mind of its own in this chilling psychological horror film written by legendary Hollywood scribe William Goldman (MISERY, MARATHON MAN) and directed by future Oscar-winner Richard Attenborough (GANDHI). Famous for its trailer ("Magic is fun. When you're dead!") which supposedly was removed from TV for being too scary, MAGIC still holds up as a terrifying trip to the Twilight Zone. Fans of Hopkins' iconic turn as Hannibal Lecter in THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS should be sure to experience MAGIC.

A ventriloquist's (Anthony Hopkins) dummy has a murderous mind of its own.

Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Ann-Margret, Burgess Meredith

Anthony Hopkins is a legend, so you know you can't go wrong. The movie is ahead of it's time in many ways.

Excellent flick. Really stays with you! Hopkins is masterful in his slow burn breakdown. And how...

Hitchcockian style thriller, not for gore hounds. Anthony Hopkins is at his best. Excellent movie with phenomenal actors.

An interesting take on mental disorders and how a psychological issue can affect one's life and relationships, without having to overtly state such a message.
