It's refreshing to see something with a dramatic heart beating beneath its discomfiting exterior.

The plaudits rest with [Juno] Temple, whose white-faced panic carries her over plot weaknesses through sheer force of will.

It's a big load of much-ado-about-nothing dressed up in writer- director Sebastian Silva's arty movements.
April 21, 2014
Magic Magic's odd denouement is a dramatic curveball that smacks the viewer square in the face.

A shapeless mess.

Silva, like all good film-makers, is a magician. But thanks to the last-minute fumbling, we're left with a broken spell.

Magic Magic is skewered on the horns of a dilemma, uncertain whether it's a horror film or a psychological drama -- and it doesn't work especially well as either.

April 17, 2014
Juno Temple is sensational in this assured psychological thriller from Sebastián Silva.

April 17, 2014
Another satisfyingly nasty and well-controlled work from Silva.

April 17, 2014
With some haunting imagery and an unusual, throbbing sense of dread throughout, this is a trippy twist on the horror trope about sadists and innocents.
April 17, 2014
Sebastián Silva's troubling psychological thriller largely eschews cabin-in-the-woods convention, and cements Juno Temple as one of the most compelling young actresses working today.

The first half of Magic Magic is greatly enjoyable: the performances are strong, the photography is crisp and immersive, and the mood is ripe and ominous.

It ebbs away at the climax, but there's 45 minutes where it sings loud and strange.

Torpid and polarising.

The by-the-numbers plotting is a little clunky but there's fun to be had in the cast's easy chemistry.

If you're like me and enjoy horror films that make you feel odd, unsettled and generally unpleasant, then this is one of the best feel-bad experiences you could have.

A misfire of epic proportions...

January 30, 2014
A disturbing, Polanski-esque psychological horror with stunning sound design and a pair of terrific performances from Juno Temple and Michael Cera.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 28, 2013
Plenty of creepy atmosphere and counter-cliche left turns don't quite make up for the odd, slightly unsatisfying finale, but it's certainly an unusual ride.

Silva's skill is allowing us to experience everything through the point of view of his protagonist, although things become tedious in the final reel
