After changing titles multiple times, Sony Pictures took Sebastian Silva’s thriller to the Sundance Film Festival as Magic Magic. The pic received quite a bit of buzz, having starred Michael Cera, Juno Temple, Emily Browning and Catalina Sandino Moreno. It takes place in remote Chile, where a vacationing young woman begins to mentally unravel; meanwhile, her friends ignore her claim until it’s too late.
Ryan Daley caught the film’s world premiere, and says it’s “strongly recommended for the half-crazy horror junkie,” adding, “Ranking alongside similarly horrific depictions of mental breakdown like Repulsion, The Tenant, and Let’s Scare Jessica to Death, Silva’s passion piece is visceral, thoughtful, and terrific.”
