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.

Only scary if you have automatonophobia (fear of human-like figures). Excellent acting from a young Anthony Hopkins. I'm convinced Burgess Meredith has always been old.

Wanted to like it but it was really slow and boring, non of the characters were captivating. A dread to watch.

My first time seeing this I thought it was great Anthony Hopkins was amazing in it , this movie is a classic. It had a better story than I anticipated but it was well done with good characters, the entire movie had alot of build up to get to a very sad ending that broke my heart , fats is awesome too. Five skulls.
