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.

Had me on the edge of my seat, fantastic actors, and just plain unnerving. I cant see myself forgetting this gem.
love this movie highly recomend this movie anthony hopkins was brillent would watch this movie again
First saw this on the big screen. I was just a kid and it scared the hell out of me. Pleasantly surprised to find that it still chills after all these years. In my opinion, this role was Hopkin’s best role, far more complex and interesting than Lecter, which began a superhuman cartoon character. Highly recommended.
Anthony Hopkins is absolutely perfect. I've never seen his old movies, I've only ever seen movies where hes older, so it was so fun to see a 40ish year old Anthony, and even then he was sooooo good. I enjoyed this very much and the ending was so heart wrenching.
