Watch: Michael Cera Creeps Out Juno Temple in Trailer For Sebastian Silva's Thriller 'Magic Magic'

"Magic Magic." Sundance
At Sundance this year, Chilean director Sebastian Silva premiered two distinctly different films. One, "Crystal Fairy," is a drug-fueled comedy starring Michael Cera. Silva's other film, "Magic Magic," is a psychological thriller and a considerably more ominous effort, as you can tell from the just-released trailer.

The film stars Juno Temple as Alicia, an American visiting her cousin Sarah in the Chilean countryside. When Sarah suddenly has to depart, Alicia is left with her cousin's friends, consequently spiraling into insomnia and paranoia.

"Magic Magic" also features Cera, playing against-type as an immensely creepy American ex-pat. Emily Browning, Catalina Sandino Moreno, and Agustin Silva also star.

"Magic Magic" is going straight to DVD on August 6th.

    Well, it's kinda sad that this film is not going to get a theater release, i loved "the maid".

    Yeah, I don't see how this can be correct. It was even selected by one of the Cannes sidebars. There must be at least a token one-week run somewhere.
