It's a big load of much-ado-about-nothing dressed up in writer- director Sebastian Silva's arty movements.

The Playlist

You can tell the movie is hell bent on exploring a psychological madness, but never earns its way down this road, instead choosing a series of contrived and inorganic conceits to manipulatively push her (and the audience) into a corner.

Guardian [UK]

The script unsettles, but never scares, so it doesn't work as a horror film. It's also not a convincing chronicle of deteriorating mental illness.

We Got This Covered

Magic Magic is a little too reliant on the spotlight performances of Juno Temple and Michael Cera, and is definitely too light on story.

Torpid and polarising.

Save for the above-average performances, it's all just so much trash.

Eye for Film

Worth seeing for the performances but ultimately confusion reigns.

For viewers stuck on this island for 90 minutes with three boisterous extroverts and one semi-catatonic, semi-hysteric guest, it's like coming down with a case of both schizophrenia and high cabin fever.

A misfire of epic proportions...

This is London

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

Geoffrey Macnab
Independent

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.

A shapeless mess.

Silva takes us by the hand and drags us into the madness as well, and it's an experience that is wholly uncomfortable.

HeyUGuys

Playing on fears of isolation, medication and the unknown, Magic Magic builds an unfalteringly oppressive atmosphere that is occasionally as funny as it is frightening.

Magic Magic's odd denouement is a dramatic curveball that smacks the viewer square in the face.

Little White Lies

Juno Temple is sensational in this assured psychological thriller from Sebastián Silva.

A deranged, deadpan delight.

Emma Dibdin
Digital Spy

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.

Lewis Bazley
Sky Movies

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.

The List

Juno Temple is excellent, raw and unpredictable as Alicia, while Michael Cera (who also executive produces) offers genuine surprise in a dark and unrestrained performance.
