Magic Magic movie scene

Michael Cera terrorizes Chile in Magic Magic.

Michael Cera (Youth in Revolt),  Juno Temple (Killer Joe), Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) and Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace) star in the 2013 thriller Magic Magic from Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Silva (The Maid).

Far from home, Alicia (Temple) arrives in South America Chile to vacation with her cousin, Sarah (Browning). When Sarah is suddenly called away, Alicia is stuck on a remote island off Chile with three of Sarah’s friends, including Barbara (Moreno) and Brink (Cera), an American exchange student with a sadistic streak. Off-balance and unable to sleep, Alicia begins to spiral into a nightmarish scenario that includes ancient indigenous rites, disturbing animal behavior, hypnotic trances, and the growing threat of danger.

The R-rated film makes its commercial premiere in the U.S. on DVD following its rollout to the Cannes, Sundance and Edinburgh film festivals.

Presented in English and Spanish with English subtitles, Magic Magic is one of two 2013 collaborations between Cera and filmmaker Silva, the second being the drug-fueled adventure film Crystal Fairy, which is currently in theaters.

The DVD contains a making-of featurette as a supplement.
