Judge, Jury and Executioner by Reg Blackwood

Customer rank: +1

What can you tell about a person just by looking at a photograph?

Aside from gender, race, age and social standing, is there some other message which is subconsciously communicated to us?

Is there something more sinister lurking behind the eyes that stare back at us?

Could you separate the guilty from the innocent or even divine a murderer from his victims?

From Reg Blackwood The Quicknotist comes a well thought out, flexible, easy to perform, yet effective illusion with a dark, dramatic and memorable outcome.

This ebook contains a detailed explanation of the basic effect and five variations to suit any performer or situation. No sleights and minimal skill required.


The performer lays out five photographs and a sealed or folded prediction on the table. Directed by the performer, a spectator narrows down the five by a process of elimination until only one or two remain. As photographs are eliminated, they are placed face down, showing their backs to be blank. Finally, when two photos remain the spectator selects one of the remaining photos for himself and the other for the performer. The prediction is revealed in the form of a verdict and states that either the spectator or the performer holds a guilty murderer, correctly predicting who has what. When the final two photos are turned face down, the prediction is shown to be correct as one of the remaining photos has "Murderer" printed on the reverse side, whereas all of the others have been shown to be blank.

I love murder mystery plots in mentalism. They combine two things people enjoy--violence and mind-reading. Seriously, I like Reg's stuff a lot, but this is clearly B- material by itself. I have, however, used it to follow Exhibit A & B by Stephen Tucker, a cute Darren Brown-like routine where the spectator selects the correct murder weapon out of some funny choices. To add interest, I then make the potential suspects in Judge, Jury, and Executioner movie stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt. Together, using two different old-school methods, the sum is greater than the parts, and I rule.

So there you have it. By itself, this effect is just meh, but together with something in a similar vein, you can make it pretty darn cool.

Judge, Jury and Executioner is a great demonstration in subconscious knowledge and a dark presentation of an interesting Innocent/Murder plot.

Non complicated methods and all the details are explained very well.

A very interesting effect for mentalist/bizarrists.
