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.

really good movie. my grandfather did the special effects for this movie.
Hopkins' manifestation of "Corky" was remarkable. A classic by definition. Highly recommend this slow-ride into maddness.
Even though I was able to predict most of the movie, Anthony Hopkins was great. The end threw me for a loop. One of those endings that makes me go straight to youtube to look into it further. Awesome movie!
Creeeeeeeepy!!! Classic film and super creepy. I bet this happens more than people know!!!
