Titanas
Russian Roulette with Cans by Titanas

There are 6 bullets in a gun, 6 cans on the table. Can you guess which is going to fire? Do you feel lucky?

A funny Russian Roulette performance by Titanas. This time your risk is not your life but if you get wet or not.

Titanas' method is novel and has nothing to do with a similar Paul Harris idea.

Tom Phoenix
Demonic by Tom Phoenix

Be ready for Halloween.

This is a dark, multi-phase routine perfect for anyone who appreciates magic with a more sinister tone.

  • The participant selects and signs a card
  • It is placed in their hands.
  • When they turn the card over, a black pentagram has appeared on the face.
  • You hold the card over a flame, and the pentagram vanishes from the card, and reappears on your palm.
  • You then burn the face of the card, and the numbers "666" appear in white writing in the center of the scorch mark.
You will receive a PDF with instructions, as well as additional ideas for how to use the techniques...

Tom Phoenix
Connections by Tom Phoenix

This is a two phase mentalism/card magic effect, involving a couple transpositions; both begin in the mind, then manifest into the physical. It's a fun and fairly simple routine that packs a punch and will have your participants wondering.

The first phase is an in-the-hands transposition of two spectator signed cards, and the second phase is a mental transposition of thought and a physical transformation of material.

  • No duplicates
  • No gimmicks
  • No dual reality
  • This is 100% clean
Additional presentation ideas are included, as well as tips and subtleties to apply to the rest of your...

Tom Phoenix
Peeks of Chaos by Tom Phoenix

Two devious peek devices for mentalists.

Every mentalist needs an arsenal of peek methods, be that a device, or a folding peek. The Peeks of Chaos contains two peek devices, each using the card box: the "Mockra Peek", and the "Meanas Peek". Each method is very deceptive, and the peek happens at a natural moment, with no funny movements.

Tommaso Guglielmi
Subliminal Influence by Tommaso Guglielmi

Subliminal Influence is a multiple phase routine. You can decide to perfom all the phases in a row or just some of them as single effects. If you perform the entire routine exactly as Tommaso describes, it will take almost 20 minutes of your show. So, you decide.

The following effects take place:

  • Guess a Random Selection: The performer guesses a random card selected by the spectator
  • Gemini Effect part 1: The spectator and the performer select a card. The 2 cards are 2 cards with the same value and color: (AH - AD, 3S-3C, etc. )

Advancing Mother by Tommy Burnett

Advancing Mother is a 'progressive' advancement in the revelation of the famous effect, Mother Of All Book Tests (MOABT) by Ted Karmilovich. If you already own a copy of MOABT then Advancing Mother is for you. If you don't, then hopefully this will inspire you to get one for yourself.

Tommy Burnett's thinking will take you down a short but winding road towards the goal of revealing a thought of word. By using Tommy's well thought out system you no longer need to secretly discover the first letter of the word. You can get an immediate hit without asking anything and in most cases get hit after...

Tommy Burnett
Psyclops Mind Reading System by Tommy Burnett

Here is what happens:

The performer shows his participant(s) a pack of blank index cards that have writing on one side (the other side is blank.) A different word, number and design are written on each card. The participant genuinely mixes them thoroughly and then selects one of the cards from the pack. They can remember everything on the card or just one item, it is totally a free choice. With little to no pumping you can tell them what they are thinking, duplicate a drawing, guess a pin number. Not only that, you can do this for up to 3 people at a time.

Over 60 pages of instructions,...

Tony Binarelli
Extra Sensory Perception by Tony Binarelli

From the introduction:

"Billet test" is one of the classics in mentalism: the mentalist divines a word, a number or a drawing made by a spectator, without coming in contact with the paper.

Numberless are the methods designed to solve this problem: "center tears", window envelopes, "umbrella moves" or billet switches. All these methods, in my opinion, have a great weakness: the mentalist must repeatedly touch the billet. With that in mind, I looked for a method to avoid all this "manipulation" and that would appear as real telepathy.

What I am going to reveal to you, I think is a good...

Tony Corinda
The Centre Tear by Tony Corinda

A very detailed description of how Tony Corinda performs his legendary center tear. The effect is as simple and baffling as: The spectator is invited to think of a word and write it on a slip of paper. The paper is burnt and from the ashes, the mentalist reads the chosen word.

This is Number 1 of "Corinda's Selected Effects". From the introduction:

There are lots of versions of the Centre Tear (or "Torn Centre") and some of them are good - others deplorable. This is not so much a "variation" as a "routine". It is the exact handling that I use and is the result of continuous performance....

Tony Shiels
Bizarre Magic by Tony Shiels

Stephen King in his book Dance Macabre, a book that deals with horror in literature and film, pointed out that the only two kinds of movies which produced an audible reaction from an audience were comedy and horror.

It was Tony Shiels who pushed magic in the direction of horror and, long before magic-as-theatre became the latest fad, suggested that tricks could be made more entertaining if their presentations were more dramatic; perhaps a little out of the ordinary. Few took up the suggestion but those that did went on to found what is today known as Bizarre Magick; magic which involves those...

It's Alive: The World of Tony 'Doc' Shiels by Tony Shiels

This is not your typical magic video. While Tony Shiels demonstrates a few bizarre magic effects, it is for the most part a human interest piece. Tony invites us into his home as well as into the woods where we see him talking, walking, pointing at leaves and stones, giving performance advice and pondering the past - all done in his weird and unique way.

If you want to learn more about the personality behind Tony Shiels you will love this video. If you are after the next best effect you will certainly be disappointed.

Canastos by Ulrich von Etzenbach

Canastos is one of these few book test predictions, which you can perform anytime, anywhere and with anyone. Once you have learned Canastos, you can perform an impromptu miracle wherever you go.

The performer invites a spectator to take part in his experiment. The performer hands a spectator an envelope and asks them to make sure it is never touched by the performer again. The spectator is also given a book to inspect and to make sure that every page is different with nothing else written down except the text itself.

The performer takes the book back and riffles through the pages until...

1 - Magician allows anyone to step forward and sit in a chair. He blindfolds them and does this to show it is not hypnotizing. Then tells person to try to stand up, and they are unable to do so.

Effect: A single column of want ads cut from any newspaper is freely shown. It is not gimmicked or prepared in any way. Holding the strip vertically, you start to snip ads from the bottom of the strip, one at a time, until a spectator...

Center Tear Methods by Ulysses Frederick Grant

The center tear is, without question, the finest all-around method for gaining information written by a spectator. The main advantage of the center tear is that it is always ready to use, a small slip of paper is all that is needed.

In the past, many performers went to U. F. Grant seeking a way to use the center tear effectively. The problem which confronted most of them was how to read the written message without being detected. This problem confronts nearly everyone who wants to use the center tear. And it has been the reason many performers have avoided it.
