I don't give many things 5-stars. I almost NEVER give any magic effect 5-stars, to be certain. But Jeff Stone has knocked it out of the park on this one. For the money, and mental effort required to learn/perform, this one is a grand slam! Bizarre effects with clean, well-designed props have always been my kryptonite! If you are like me, this will be right up your alley.
Included in the small, hard plastic case is: 12 well-designed auntique portrait photos (think early 1900's or late 1800's), an old-fashioned brownish glass medicine bottle, a small black envelope, and 5 tiny skulls. There is also a card/label with a QR code which will lead you to a mini web site with a trailer video, instructions in PDF form, and some other little clever bits and amusements. The written instructions in the pdf are clear and (per his usual), Jeff explores all manner of weaknesses/strengths/quirks in terms of the effect and the history of the method used to deliver the effect. You really have access to some of his interesting thoughts. Jeff has performed the heck out of this one, and it shows.
If you do walk-around at Halloween, or at cocktail mixers or restaurants or darned near ANYWHERE, this is a great trick! No, it isn't entirely "in-the-hands", but only requires a tiny bit of table space to perform. It re-sets in all of 6 seconds. This would play for that LOUD table of patrons, or for that quiet, melancholy group of retired teachers. The 2nd-graders and below crowd? You might want to pass on this one for them...it is a twinge on the darker side.
