A magician performs a show where he selects a female volunteer and appears to put swords, drills, and such through them. They walk away and everyone applauds, then they show up somewhere else, dead of the same injuries they sustained in the magic show. Police are baffled and can't tie the murders to the magician. A man whose girlfriend is infatuated with the show begins to investigate on his own.

[Montag fails to kill Sherry, who laughs maniacally after being disenboweled]
Montag the Magnificent: How dare you laugh! HOW DARE YOU!
Sherry Carson: [sits up] Look at ME now if you dare! Look into MY eyes!
Montag the Magnificent: [goes uneasy] What will I see there?
Sherry Carson: The past... and the future. Do you think you're the only one who deals an illusion?
Montag the Magnificent: You mean... you? You too?
Sherry Carson: I, too. And you... you are my illusion. You are no longer even here. You'll have to start your little charade all over again.
Montag the Magnificent: [stunned] But I... I... I am Montag!
[Montag suddenly finds himself back on stage all the way back to the beginning of the movie]
Montag the Magnificent: Yes! I am Montag, master of illusion! The fire of the laws of reason! What... is real? Are you certain you know what reality is?
[Sherry and Jack are seen within the audience]
Montag the Magnificent: How do you know that at this second you aren't sleeping in your beds dreaming that you are here sitting in this theater?
Sherry Carson: [whispers to Jack] You know what I think?
Sherry Carson: I think he's a phony.
