What are everyone's best stage illusions that have a good effect (in order if you want)?

Thanks,

Any effect which you can elicit an audible gasp from the audience works for me.

Sub Trunk, Exchange illusions, Vanishes (when you do not expect them), you get the drift.

I use a Gaughan "Sword Box" with "Light" Sabers. Don't know why, maybe a lot of laypeople (the people who pay) have not seen this illusion often (the sword box), but when I open the front door and there is close to 500 watts lighting the interior and the girl is gone, I get that gasp. This works for me.

I look forward to other people's answers.

Things with suprise ending e.g. backstage with magician. Audience already knows what is going to happen in sawing or sub trunk.

The Metamorphosis, done well and quick, is what gets me the best reaction. Even people who saw me perform it years ago, still remember it.

There are also a series of "thinking" illusions. Origami, Girl in Puzzle would be some. They are not exciting, but really leave you wondering, people may go back in their minds over what they saw long after the show is over.
