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

What a classic! I remember watching this movie as a child and was scared of puppets. Watching back on it now and seeing Anthony Hopkins doing some of his best acting, I can see where his great acting began rising to where he is at today. GREAT ACTING, GREAT MOVIE!

Solid acting across the board but still a pretty mediocre horror movie.

Worth it to see Hopkins, I think?
