I've seen the illusion where the person is pulled apart (street magic) or cut into (stage magic) and was wondering if anyone knows what this illusion is called and is it available. The basic effect is the person is cut into and both ends walk away or crawl away.

Do you mean the one Kevin James is doing? Or the CA knockoff?

If it's the CA version you're after all you need is a video editing suite, some actors and a person born with no legs...

The street version is approximately 120 years old...

It's pretty convincing.

The one I saw was done on a picnic table. Looked like the participant was chosen by force and not random. The person was laid upon the table and pulled apart. The top half ran off on its arms and the legs stood up and moved. Another version on stage was done with a chainsaw supposedly cutting the person in half. Have seen a 3rd version where a woman is cut into and the botom half pushes the top half off stage on a gurney.
