One of my dolls has arrived, What's with the DVD? I can not select the different chapters with my remote.

Spent a good 2 hours yesterday trying to get the doll to perform, ended up watching DVD on my computer. My hands look like I attacked it with sandpaper and is painful. Still sore 12 hours later and I could not get it to rise more than a cm or two. Tried all over. I found a much easier way to perform this that don't use the traditional methods as shown here, I can get the doll now to stand right up and no pain, requires an additional prop that I had nearby.


You're not alone bud. Content is terrible anyway. Just figure it out on your own with trial and error. If you want to tear a little hole in your jeans then investigate navigating through the chapters by ripping the disc to your computer and playing the individual files with vlc player.

My wife and son got me one of these little guys for Christmas. Very nice! The only issue is the DVD is a little screwy when trying to use the menu. It appears that it does not move when you hit the down arrow for the next chapter. But when you do and hit play it does work. None of the chapters highlight when you try to select one.

I had no trouble getting this to work. It is actually quite easy to make it rise. Sometimes it even moves close to 90 degrees. Looks much better than the voodoo doll that I have. This should be fun to use.

Thought I would chime is and make this my first real post (other than my introduction post). I bought HD a couple months ago and love it. Everyone assumes there is a thread, and at first sometimes I lead them into thinking that there really is. But then I take their finger and circle it all around proving there is not. A few times my spectator has grabbed the doll and examined it very closely, but amazingly nothing has ever been detected. Really drives them crazy!

I ordered two and have been waiting for it for over two months and it's not here yet! I've emailed many times with promises of "I'll look into it" but never did.
I am very disappointed.

Jim Stan,

You had the exact same problem I did with the DVD. I just figured it out on my own.

Its a very light difference between the two, I can see it on my xbox one and not my 360. I am having some handling issues, if someone who has it and preforms it on a normal basis could PM me that would be great, don't want to discuss the method in public.

Would be great if this came with a gimmicked & ungimmicked doll.
Agreed, DVD menu is horrible

DVD menu is not only horrible, its unusable. I never ever came upon such a problem with DVD and I seen a lot of DVD's.

I have to view this on my computer.

Just received this about an hour ago and already it is working fine! Wasn’t difficult at all to get it to rise all the way to upright in my hand. Very cool!

I didn't try the DVD in a set-top DVD player; I just ripped it to my hard drive and played it with the VLC player - which is what I do with all my magic DVDs. No problem playing it. However once I select a chapter there is no direct way back to the main menu. But after each chapter plays it returns back to the main menu on its own, so that works for me.

As for working the doll itself there isn't really a lot of instruction needed; this little guy works exactly as explained and I am not having any difficulty with it. It can rise all the way each time. Love it!

Any word on additional dolls? Or the box that was mentioned earlier? I'll be ordering more as soon as they make them available.

Thanks!

Jim

After hundred's of time's using this.
My gimmick loosen and started swiveling.
I just put a drop of super glue on it.
And it's ready again for some more fun.

Just joined and this is my first post. I've been coming here for awhile unregistered and reading reviews. Really enjoy this place.

I just received the HD today and really like it. Great item. I was one of the guys who got a bad DVD. Wouldn't play on my standalone player. Like others have said I couldn't select chapters. If I just hit play it would only play the performance part and then go back to the main menu so had to play it on the computer. But that said I really like this illusion alot.

I actually wasn't familiar with any previous tricks that used a similar gimmick before this doll but I knew what the gimmick was before ordering because of a bad performance on youtube of some guy reviewing it which made it obvious, but it's very clever and I love the look of the doll. I blackened the ends of each appendage with a sharpie just because I like the look better. I don't know if it will actually help hide the gimmick more but I think it looks better. Just a personal preference. But yeah great item.

Hi, just fresh from the introduction page and wanted to say how impressed I am with this version of the haunted doll. It has passed the wife and daughter test so it has to be good. I have made up a casket like box for him to go into to protect him. It has an up and over lid with magnets to secure it down with a made to measure interior. The doll and casket has had great reactions so far including a couple who ran away never to be seen again.

This looks like a great illusion. I read in another thread on the Café that the gimmick has to be inserted under your skin and can cause you to bleed, which seems odd to me as why would anyone want open wounds in public from performing an illusion.

I'm not saying this does that of course. I just want to clarify it's not true.

Thanks Smile.
