I ordered my scream packet as part of the original 20, the instructions were emailed very quickly, with the props arriving just before halloween. There are a few typos in the instructions, and the actual bit of work you have to do felt that it was a little unclear and rushed in its explanation. Even when the props arrived and I had the stuff in hand I kept looking at the photos and instructions thinking that doesn't look like mine?


I like the premise, its reads as a lovely bit of strange that could be played on any night not just halloween. The comments by others suggest they understood straight away what to do, and had no problems. For me I can't use it yet until I am clear exactly what is supposed to going on, and for my feeble mind a little more clarity in the instructions would have helped. My other thought was whether the photos could be larger? on two of the images the change that takes place is very subtle, and I found myself struggling to notice a difference. However rather like a marked card, once you see the marks its hard to ignore it.

In his email Jamie said he wanted any comments (good and bad) posted on this thread so that's what I have done, I will also email Jamie with my query and I suspect that it will be very easy for him to put me on the right track.

So in summary it is a great idea, and rads very well, assuming that the other 19 folk had no problems, then I am sure that it has been performed all over the place to great reactions, For the slower 5% like myself a little more explanation would be useful

BTW Jamie, just to clarify, I didn't swear at you Jamie (well, not a REAL swear word!) But it's made it an expletive anyway Smile

Thank you for writing that our pennjarr. My literacy skills are terrible but for some reason two copies of the PDF were sent out. Many people said that their copy did not have the printable photos in it. I believe that the proof read version ( with printable images ) didn't upload. That's totally my bad!

As for the explanation, I agree. Any magician who has tried to explain anything in text will agree, it's very hard! That being said, I did receive one email from a chap asking for some sort of video. I have intact filmed a little something that I will make available to everyone who purchased Scream. I'll send the link out within the next day or so!

Hopefully that will help out massively! And I appreciate you typing that up pennjarr! Let me know (when you've learnt the moves from the video) how it plays!

Ha Tim! Hopefully it's worth it!

Jamie,thanks for the video!
I did not have my props before Halloween,but knew they would take a bit,to get to the States!
He did send me a email for prints,of the pics!
The one photo,that came with the prop,you could not see the something in the window. Put on glasses and still could not see the correct image. You can see the image,in the window in video,and on printable pics!.
Kind of a heads up,Jamie. You may need to look at the image photo of inside the window,before sending props!
Jamie,has been very helpful on any issue,with this effect! Smile

I have received mine and have tried it out with good results. I may try including a severed finger like post above. I may also try printing out a larger photo so the changes will be easier to see. I should be able to find envelopes to fit.

I would recommend this to any one who likes this type of magic.

Hey Gary! that's most odd as all of the images printed were exactly the same! May possibly be a printer error! If you shoot me an email, id be happy to post you out a new set of photos!

Shak, A larger version works well with larger envelopes! The ones I sent the packages in are really nice to use!

Jamie,

This is an awesome effect and very unique. It packs very small, can be repeated in about a minute and has a big impact. What I really like about this effect is that it is not another pick a card effect, or something where everyone wants to look at the props (because it had to be gimmicked to pull it off). The beauty of the effect is in its short, but powerful storytelling and its surprising ending. For those wanting something that will leave a lasting impression, Scream is a great choice.

The concept can quite easily be modified to make the ending less scary or very frightening.

For those of you wanting something unique, that packs small and has a lasting impact, I’d recommend you take a serious look at Scream.

p.s. Thanks also for the bonus video with extra handlings etc. Can’t say enough about this product! It helped me to see the envelope move performed which was a great help (it was clearly explained in the PDF, I just learn better from seeing things)

Thank you for the lovely words about Scream Dan!

It really is a unique effect and its simplicity aids its impact. Ive had so much positive feedback from this and the emails have been flowing like you wouldn't believe!

Its not been the smoothest of releases from me but I hope everyone enjoys the effect and that the ripple of screams continues!

I do promise that this will be released again in the near future in one way or another!

Paisa23, I promise it will definitely be back in one form or another. Just check back to the Café, my Facebook/ twitter or to my website for updates!

and a Magic Café app would be epic and much needed!

This is a great little effect with a simple premise, a simple handling and a great ending. If you missed the release and it comes round again, make sure you grab it!

I finally tried this out on some of the technical crew at work the other night and they reacted brilliantly.

I didn't get the release with the printable photos but a quick email and Jamie rectified the problem immediately so 10/10 for customer service. I'm looking forward to hearing more of his ideas.

So glad your having fun with this Tony! They are the kind of reactions that you'll get from this kind of trick.

I love a good scream! I have just got in the large number of envelopes needed to produce this and production will start shortly!
