Screen Crush Review: MAGIC MAGIC

Screen Crush logo
Silva, sadist that he is, knows that true fear comes from expectation. There are zero “jump scares” in this film, but the insufferable waiting, waiting, waiting for something terrible to happen will drive you crazy… When good actors are given room to just freak out about something that isn’t supernatural or make believe, the effect is no joke. As a result, the final 20 minutes or so of ‘Magic Magic’ may very well make you sick to your stomach. At the screening I attended, there were audible moans and even an entreaty to “make it stop.” Yeah, you’ve got to see this movie.
