Voodoo Box Review

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.

Manufacturer's 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
