    • Eight upcoming genre directors come together to create this anthology of horrors. Inspired by the success of films such as Southbound, V/H/S and ABCs of Death, Magic 8 will bring together the hottest horror talent to create a bold, high-concept feature.

      The story of Magic 8 begins with a notorious occult society founded by controversial academic Dr. Aelurus Baset in the early 1900s. Just a year after forming, the members of the Magic 8 were all found dead – mutiliated and charred, dressed in sharp, black suits and wearing gold masks depicting the Egyptian cat god Baast.

      A hundred years later, a group of students resurrect the secret society. What begins as a light-hearted pastiche soon becomes something much more dangerous when they plan to reenact the infamous ritual that led to the death of the original Magic 8.
