Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for writer/director Sebastian Silva’s psychological horror film Magic Magic. The pic stars Juno Temple as a young girl who starts to lose her mind while vacationing with friends in Chile, with Michael Cera taking an incredibly dark turn as an acquaintance of Temple’s character who has a rather peculiar fascination with the girl. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to mostly positive reviews, and while audiences sparked to the unsettling nature of the film, it’s not exactly a highly mainstream concept. As such, Sony decided to go direct-to-DVD with the pic. Nevertheless, this trailer is certainly tantalizing and the pic looks to be worth seeing for Cera’s performance alone. Silva and Cera also have another collaboration that premiered at Sundance called Crystal Fairy, and that film is slated for a theatrical release later this year.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer for Magic Magic. The film also stars Emily Browning, Catalina Sandino Moreno, and Agustin Silva.
