It’s time for some Magic… but beware, the demonic dummy will have you screaming for mummy.
To celebrate the Blu-Ray release of classic horror movie Magic - directed by Richard Attenborough and written by William Goldman - we are giving 3 lucky WhatCulture readers the chance to win a copy on Blu-Ray.
With the continuing popularity of creepy dolls on screen from Hugo to Annabel via the many incarnations of Chucky, we meet one of the original devilish dummies: Fats… the side-kick from hell. Adapted for the big screen by Goldman from his best-selling book, Magic is out on Blu-ray now.
Corky (Hopkins – The Silence of the Lambs, The Two Popes) is a shy magician who just can’t get a break, but when he introduces foul-mouthed ventriloquist doll, Fats, to his act, his star begins to rise. With the chance of hitting the big time finally on the cards, the pressure starts to get to him. In a panic Corky flees the big city, returning to the security of his hometown.
When he reunites with old high school flame Peggy (Ann-Margret – Tommy, Grumpy Old Men), love could be in the air. But Fats doesn’t approve and he’s about to create carnage. Who’s really pulling the strings?
To be in with a chance of winning, simply submit your name and address details to contest@whatculture, remembering to quote 'Joker' in the subject line.
Magic is available now on Blu-Ray.
