Halloween Movie Countdown: "The Prestige"

"Making something disappear isn't enough... you have to bring it back."

Another great film with an amazing plot twist to continue this year's Halloween Movie Countdown. The element of surprise gets a whole new meaning in this movie about two magicians in the ultimate rivalry.

Set in the late 1800's, the film focuses on one of the popular forms of entertainment at the time, magic... and the tricks that come with it. (Sorry for the pun.) One of the things I love about this Christopher Nolan work of genius, is how the story is actually told. Not only is the story itself so intricate and clever, but with the use of non-linear story-telling, you are kept at the edge of you seat.

The turn of the century style, mysterious plot twists, and overall direction keep you intrigued and curious while watching making this another great film to add on to our Halloween Movie Countdown.
