Product Description

The magician offers his audience a demonstration in the latest high-tech pseudoscientific technology: The Voodoo Box. Guaranteed to ward off bad luck and ill omens! His assistant steps inside and the box is closed shut. The magician unveils twenty-one umbrellas that have all been opened indoors. He proceeds to shove the umbrellas through all the sides of the box at various angles. All twenty-one umbrellas are shoved into the box, yet no screams are heard from within. The magician removes the umbrellas (and opens a few to show that they are real). The box is opened and his assistant steps out unharmed!

Is it a feat of teleportation? Is the assistant a contortionist? Are sinister forces at work? Find out for yourself!

The Voodoo Box is a brand new illusion plan from the mind of Andrew Mayne. Designed to be built in under 30 minutes for less than 30 bucks, the Voodoo Box is a full scale stage illusion that packs flat and travels easily. The effect can be performed surrounded and everything can be inspected afterwards

Saw this performed three times in one week on the main stage at the Magic Castle, and the audience was completely underwhelmed. The umbrellas drop in at any angle they happen to fall at, clearly allowing the girl to contort around them as needed. Since the umbrellas aren't secured in place, they also wiggle as the girl moves around them. At the end, the audience was expecting the girl to pop out wearing a different costume or something, so was twice as disappointed, first at having been forced to sit through such a lame supposed trick as this. Audience responded with "polite" applause only because they felt sorry for the girl. Save yourself the embarrassment and 15 bucks by not bothering with this.

I have performed this to great success. You can't get it, build it and go out and perform it just like that. Things need to be worked out and coordinated with your assistant. If you find the picture on the cover interesting and are willing to put a little time into perfecting the routine, you'll have a great illusion on your hands! And inexpensive too! I highly recommended.

Voodoo Box Brings Good Luck to Illusionist on a Budget

Note: I got the illusion plans directly from Andrew and he sells the plans for half of the origional price (as of this review).

If you know anything about illusion and illusion plans you know how expensive they can be, but Andrew Mayne changes that with his line of illusions plans. This illusion is a take on the classic Sward Basket, in this illusion an assistant steps inside a box and 20 non-gimmicked umbrellas are slid into the box at various angles. The illusionist then removes the umbrellas, the box is opened and the assistant steps out unharmed. This is a full scale stage illusion that packs flat, can be performed surrounded and all the items used are recognizable to the audience, no fancy magic boxes here.

Mayne details how to build the illusion fully with nice detail. I built mine in about 40 minutes. I got the box at a local home improvement store and uses a kitchen knife to cut the openings in the box. The... [Read More]
