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...

This is another attempt to make an arty psychological horror which doesn't quite come off. The characters are less than engaging and the overuse of darkness in an attempt to create some kind of eerie atmosphere leaves the viewer feeling both irritated and confused. Nothing much actually happens - the lead character has a breakdown over an hour and a half but even that is not well portrayed. The description on Amazon and on the cover is completely misleading - this is simply an art-house drama with no redeeming features. Avoid.

Format: DVD
This film is marketed as a horror film, which is entirely misleading. It's a psychological drama, and not a good one. Alicia is a young American lady, who goes to visit her cousin Sarah in a remote farmhouse in Chile. Soon after Alicia arrives, Sarah departs to go and sit an exam somewhere, leaving Alicia alone with three of Sarah's mates.
The three mates are immature and largely charmless. One of them, played by Michael Cera, is lewd, sneering, creepy, tactless and misogynistic. Another is a Chilean guy, who's an amateur hypnotist. The third mate is a dour, selfish, dull and anti-social Chilean woman.
Alicia starts to have a nervous breakdown, which is very gradual and portrayed in a cliche ridden fashion. It's never actually explained why she has a nervous breakdown. The film asks you to assume it's a combination of lack of sleep, and being hypnotized, and little else. It entirely fails to convince.
The film moves at a leaden pace, but I stuck with it determinedly, thinking that one of two things might happen. Firstly, that the movie would be like The Wicker Man, i.e. a very slow and slightly creepy build up, with a young, virginal, central character, who endures a horrific fate at the hands of the homicidal locals. No such luck.
Secondly, that Alicia would turn into a deranged, maniacal killer, and slay her annoying housemates. No such luck. As Alicia goes into meltdown, Sarah, who's come back from sitting her exam, and her odious pals, take the ranting Alicia to a neighbour, who's some sort of witch doctor.
A black magic ritual then takes place, involving a goat, and Alicia stops breathing. The end credits started. I just couldn't believe it. I felt utterly cheated, that the film couldn't justify the slow, very long build up, with a stunning end sequence.

This is a confusing film that is trying very hard to be arty and interesting. It's supposed to be a psychological thriller, but it's rubbish, with a bunch of actors who look as confused to be in it as I was watching it. As far as the plot is concerned it goes nowhere. All in all it was a waste of time.

A poorly constructed film with a mixture of Spanish and English langage. Its confusing at times with the actors and actresses telling each other to switch back to English. Cant give this film any more then one star even I think it deserves none.

Despite largely negative reviews I thought I'd give this a spin - sadly I've got to add my name to the list of people left underwhelmed by Magic Magic.

Juno Temples probably the best thing in it - she gives a pretty decent performance I thought as Alicia, a young lady who journeys to stay with a friend on a remote island off Chile. Here she meets some other friends of her friend who she doesn't get on especially well with despite the fact none of them do anything particularly horrendous to her.

For reasons I'm not entirely sure of, Alicia starts to fall apart - she has a breakdown of sorts. This may be due to the location, a feeling of loneliness, an inability to cope with the strangers she meets or possibly there are problems in her past (there's the odd hint to this end). There are no real answers offered and this is a theme of the film. A promising opening hour slowly builds up a bit of tension and a certain sense of dread but the last act unravels into one of those frustrating non-endings that crop up often these days.

Michael Cera plays his role admirably against type and the actings generally decent throughout but overall I felt the film just didn't really add up to much. A wasted opportunity.

Format: DVD
Alicia (Juno Temple) visits her cousin Sarah (Emily Browning) in Chile. Sarah is suddenly called back to Santiago to take exams (weak plot point) while Alicia remains isolated with Sarah's inhospitable friends. Brink (Michael Cera) is a tag-a-long who keeps hitting on Alicia who does not like him. In fact I didn't like him. He was immature, prissy, dorky, and creepy all rolled up into one. Barbara (Catalina Sandino Moreno), the host, was cold while Agustin (Agustín Silva) an amateur hypnotist and Sarah's BF lacked personality.

The film was boring for the first hour as sleepless, jet lagged, Alicia didn't want to be on the island anymore than the other people wanted her there. We get clues early on that there are issues. After the first hour, the film turns weird, but I found it lacking in entertainment value because the characters and dialogue had been dead for too long.

This film is not a horror film, nor is it an action-thriller. It is a drama which teases you into thinking it is a thriller. Not something I will own, and regretted the rental.
