Does anyone here own Peter Loughran's Poltergeist? If so could you tell me what you think of it and how you find performing it. Thanks

I don't have Poltergeist but I have the same effect with Peters PPP. Its basically the same effect but a smaller version. The Poltergeist is a bit more elaborate as the video shows. You can read my review of PPP as well as another here.. http://www.masterofillusions.ca/phantasm_portable_pro.html

Hi Guys, (and thanks again for the nice review Tim). The Poltergeist was our very first illuison of this type first developed back in the late 90s and requires the use of an assistant that controls the objects hidden from view.

Since then we have incorporated a more advanced technology that enables all of the animations to be done without the aid of any assistants and are completely remote contolled and programable to your specific routines and needs. Sean Bogunia is responsible for custom making the programable microchips used in these illusions.

The Phantasm, Phantasm Portable Pro III and the Relic of the Revenant all apply the more advanced remote control, programable technology, and DO NOT require any assistants. Thus the price differences.

These more advance models also pack up much more compact and are light weight compared to the heavier and older Poltergeist model. However with the aid of an assistant with the Poltergeist illusion, you are also able to levitate the plexglas box, have objects change or vanish from the plexiglas box and you may also produce an assistant at the end on top of the table or beside it etc(think Greg Frewin).

In all effects the plexglas boxes are gimmicked but the gaffs are undetectable by your audience and can withstand the closest examination from any skeptic.

These effects have been used by top performers including Lawrence Kong, Darren Brown, and Yes even our good friend Timothy Drake to name a few. They can be a stand alone effect or a compliment to an existing routine such as a dancing hank. The possibilties are endless, but I personally would reccomend the more advanced models. I only offer the Poltergeist still to this date because of the added options the hidden assistant can offer the performer. We can also custom build your own unique version of the effect, perhaps in a prop you specifically had in mind.

Best,

Peter.

Thanks Peter for that fast response to my question. I had also been looking at the newer versions you offer but still like the idea of the whole cube floating at the end and being able to produce/vanish objects. I will take the other into consideration being the new technology would be a great help. My main problem is they are all excellent effects and I’m having a hard time figuring which works best. Anyone else who owns any of these effects and would like to comment, that would be great. Thanks once again Peter.

I would send Peter a private message. He is a nice guy and I am sure he may be able to help you out.
