The Secrets of Zombie Ball
Learn a classic of card magic that your audience will remember forever.

If you could have one set of magic DVDs, this would be it! This benchmark collection features just about all of magic's most enduring and classic effects and routines. It's a fabulous compendium with many of the top masters in the world of magic teaching their handlings and routines for some of magic's classics. Linking rings, sponge balls, metal bending, cups and balls, thumb tips, Zombie, color-changing knives, and many, many more topics are all gathered in this one terrific DVD reference set. Each volume covers a specific subject and features new, old, and sometimes rare footage by some of the top video producers in magic.

It's been said that while others saw a block of marble, Michelangelo saw the figure of David. Similarly, Joe Karson saw a vision of a floating ball in a plumbing fixture and subsequently created one of the most popular magic tricks ever.

What makes Zombie such an appealing trick is that, while it looks like real magic when it's performed well, it requires no assistants, rigging or other elaborate staging that previous methods for the Floating Ball required.
However, its one drawback is how easy it is to perform Zombie badly.

In this volume, you'll meet three masters of Zombie, each with their own interpretation of this classic of magic. Al Schneider begins your post-graduate course with a short, punchy routine that's perfect for those just learning Zombie to become acquainted with the basic moves and handling. He also provides some great tips on modifying the props for maximum deceptiveness. Jeff McBride is next with perhaps the most elaborate exposition of Zombie ever produced. Every move is demonstrated and explained in explicit detail, including ways to get into, and out of, the routine. He also teaches you ways to accomplish the illusion without the standard gimmick. Lastly, Tommy Wonder explains his revolutionary modifications to the apparatus and the astounding effects that are possible.

If you've always wanted to be among the select few who perform Zombie well, you'll find no better resource than this DVD.

In the 1970’s it seemed that every magic event I attended included at least one kid performing the Zombie Ball. Most of the time it was not a very magical performance. Therefore I never felt a desire to attempt it myself.

Now L & L Publishing has released “Zombie Ball” under their World’s Greatest Magic series. This is the first time I have viewed a DVD in this series. The basic concept is: Take a subject, in this case the Zombie Ball, and put together a DVD of material from their vast library. I think this is a great idea. Far too often we buy a magic DVD with six or seven effects that are explained poorly. With this series they take material from several performers on one subject. Apparently they did not have a plethora of material on the Zombie Ball but what they had was enough.

It begins with Al Schneider’s very competent performance of the Zombie, a short routine that hits on most elements of the classic Zombie Ball routine. While the lines Mr. Schneider uses... [Read More]
