Brace yourself for the toe-curling psychological horror of the year, MAGIC MAGIC, released in cinemas across the UK and On Demand on 18th April 2014, and on DVD from 28th April 2014.
BAFTA rising star Juno Temple gives an astonishing lead performance alongside a chilling Michael Cera in a film that will play with your mind and assault your senses.
MAGIC MAGIC, written and directed by Sundance Grand Jury Prize winning filmmaker Sebastián Silva (The Maid), stars Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises, Lovelace), who won Best Actress for her performance at Sitges – Catalonian International Film Festival 2013. The film also stars Michael Cera (“Arrested Development”, Juno), Emily Browning (Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Sucker Punch), Agustin Silva (Crystal Fairy) and Catalina Sandino Moreno (Fast Food Nation, Maria Full of Grace).
MAGIC MAGIC tells the story of a shy young girl, Alicia (Juno Temple), who embarks on the trip of a lifetime to a remote part of Chilé with her cousin Sarah (Emily Browning) and Sarah’s friends. However, the holiday does not go as planned as Sarah suddenly has to return to school leaving Alicia alone in an unfamiliar place with unfamiliar people. Alicia desperately tries to settle into her new surroundings but finds it difficult; entering a world of disturbing landscapes where she begins to mentally unravel. Her friends see her increasingly erratic behaviour as irrational, but they remain blissfully unaware of how much darker things will become for them. As their lack of sympathy – and the language barrier – pushes Alicia further into isolation and closer to the edge, things begin to take a rapidly downwards spiral for the group; forcing them into a situation that proves both terrifying and life-threatening…
MAGIC MAGIC will be available in cinemas and to own or rent On Demand in high and standard definition from digital retailers including but not limited to iTunes, Blinkbox, FilmFlex, Sky Store, Xbox Video and more, from 18th April 2014.
