A Frightful Mindreading ExperienceThe mind-reading, mind-blowing Verite effect has a new twist! If you know Cinema Verite or Classic Film Verite, get ready for a creepy- bizarre-frightful-slasher-bloody-scary version!
This all new set includes 32 new and different film cards, each with a film poster from one of the top scary movies of all time. Old classics, new standards, popular horror films - they’re all here.
Halloween, The Shining, Poltergeist, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Friday the 13th, Saw - even Creature From the Black Lagoon. Wonderful clear poster images, top-grossing horror movies from 1931 up to 2017.
These cards are extra-sturdy stock, glossy coated on both sides, rounded corners, 4x6, matching the exact size and texture of Classic Film Verite, so you can use all of the cards from both sets together or separately.
The back design is different but is still set up in the same way as the other Verites. These sets come in an attractive flat black cardboard storage case that matches the tone of the films.
Use the set with Cinema Verite or with Classic Film Verite or alone.
Like the other sets in this series, you hand out cards with film posters. Any spectator chooses any film and reads the list of film titles on the back. Without looking at the card, you know exactly which film he is thinking of.
Do it once or twenty times - it never fails and NO ONE will ever fathom the secret. If you want, you can draw or describe the visual image of the film’s poster instead of naming the film. Incredibly easy, but diabolically effective.
It feels like TRUE mind-reading.
ADDED BONUS EFFECT: You can also tell the spectator his film's exact ranking number in the Top 100 Horror Films Listing. Get Horror Verite and start reading scary minds today. - $50
A Uniquely Bizarre Prop
For the Discerning Professional Mentalist
Step back in time to 1692 with your spectators and have them examine a book full of history of the Salem Witch Trials. Use it to perform several mind-reading miracles on a variety of audience members. You let anyone open to any page in the Narrative History of the Trials section and you can immediately read their thoughts about what is on the page. Then you have anyone choose any accused person from the Trial Results section, and you can tell them exactly who they are thinking of, whether the accused was convicted or innocent, their sentence at the trial, even the month the trial was held and the exact number of participants.
A truly unique prop, method and routine. A magnificent prop, Salem is a careful reproduction of an antique book written in the 1600s about the Salem witch trials. It has old original woodcut illustrations, fancy flourish title lettering and detailed information about witchcraft in Early America. It looks authentic and genuine, yet is is meticulously gaffed to allow you to perform not one, but several strong effects. The book has two sections, both different in formatting and type of information. Each one allows you to perform several different effects. Use either or both sections. Make one quick revelation or carry out a 20-minute routine.
In the Narrative Section, the spectator opens to any page and reads the first line to herself. You tell her the exact nature of what she has read. She can turn to another page and you repeat your divination. Do it three or five times in a row. Each page is different and each time, you know exactly what the spectator is thinking about. Best of all, the book can be read from cover to cover with absolutely no clue as to the method. It truly reads and handles like a completely normal book. There are no short pages, no duplicate pages, no repeating vocabulary, no long obscure words, no unintelligible sentences—nothing to tip off the method to anyone.
In the Trial Results section, each page has facts and information about a specific person on trial for witchcraft. Without knowing the page or seeing the text, you can tell the spectator the full first and last name of the accused, whether she was found guilty or innocent, whether she was hanged, drowned, stoned, pressed or released. You can even tell the exact month the trial was held and how many people attended. All without looking at a thing. No fishing, no elaborate memorization, no special cheat sheets, no extra props, no outside gaffs, no stooges. So easy, you will be performing it in no time. Although the effects are very easy to perform, Salem includes an elaborate 20-page manual with information, routines, tips, suggestions, background and more, plus free helpful “reminder” bookmarks.
Salem is a terrific addition to your arsenal of mentalism or bizarre routines. The story of the Salem Witchcraft trials is fascinating to everyone, and this magnificent prop allows you to perform miracles around that story.
Created by Jim Kleefeld. Produced by Gemini Artifacts. Salem Book, Manuscript & Bookmark - $225
IMPORTANT NOTE: Salem is not in stock because it is NOT mass-produced, rather it is carefully crafted and aged by hand. Orders will be filled on first-come first served basis and may take several weeks.
