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.

Great movie surprised I never seen it till now
Damn. That movie was creepy.....I loved it! 👌🏼
Proof that Anthony Hopkins can make any movie great. He gave a chilling, excellent performance. Ann-Margaret and Burgess Meredith were also very good. The movie itself, however, was very boring. If there hadn't been solid actors in those roles I would have stopped watching halfway through.
Fantastic acting with a goofy premise but still creepy. Great find.
I am rarely bored by horror, no matter the era in which it was made, but it was really a chore for me to get through this.
