I have been looking at some items lately that have to do with the danger theme. I have watched Patrick Kuffs and seen "Dangerous Monte" and I also saw the nail trick that Cris Korn performed on TV. I would like to do such an effect but I want to know from all of you as to which the best purchase would be.

Dangerous Monte- Not really for me...
Cris Korn ver. - very clean!
Fruit salad- Paper bags are shown each spectator selects and smashes one leaving you the one with the knife. Can this be performed by just you so that there is more suspense and less of a threatened feeling to the spectator at the end.
Smash and stab- How does it compare to the Cris Korn version?
Find out what you cannot do.., Then go and do it!

Sorry I can't give you any advice on these effects, but where could I find a trick like Chris Korn did with the cups and nail? Is it in a book?

Could you, or somebody give a description of some of the other effects you named. I am also interested in the danger theme.

Thanks,

Matt

You might also like to check out Scott Alexander's DVD. He performs this style of effect with a broken beer bottle stuck shards up in a block of wood covered in a paper bag. And the AUDIENCE gets to pick which ones he will smash.

http://www.doctorzodiac.com has a nice version with knives wrapped in napkins. You'd have to ask him as to who is the originator.
