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 throws a chilling performance that draws you deeper into the the character of Corky. I enjoyed it, this isn't a slasher film so you will have to enjoy character development and a story line. If you don't like those, probably not the film for you.

Rewatched this classic psychological thriller. Anthony Hopkins is spectacular as the unhinged ventriloquist/magician. Richard Attenborough directs with plenty of atmosphere and suspense.

Good! Anthony Hopkins always deliver a stellar performance. I see traces of Hannibal. Slow story line but overall a worthwhile film. Keep in mind this is the 70s!
