While deciding whether to buy Jamie's new Scream (I did and can't wait) I poked around his site and picked up 2 other offerings. I'll post my reviews separately.

As you tell a story about a murder you display a torn up picture. The spectator assembles the 6 pieces into a family portrait. You explain why you ripped it up as you stack the pieces. You then reveal the murderer and have the puzzle reassembled to show that the murderer has vanished. The effect can be repeated with a different person vanishing.

For one of the murders you are supplied with 2 pictures of them in a locket for an optional reveal.

This comes as an ebook and a collection of jpg files. The pictures are included in the pdf so if you print the book you are ready to perform. I sent the files to Sam's club and printed them for 8 cents/each. This is a one-time expense as you use the same pieces every time, nothing is destroyed during the presentation. The required move is almost not a move, it is well-hidden in the handling and something anyone can get away with, especially as there is no telegraphing of what will happen so there is no heat on you at the time.


The easily fits in your wallet and you can have it with you at all times. If you don't use the locket reveal all you need to carry is 7 pieces of a torn photo clipped together and you are ready to spin a yarn that is spooky and surprising.

There is also a bonus routine - The Forgotten. In this one a picture is shown, the spectator rips off a quarter of it (while face down) and that quarter is not only the killer in the story but when the remainder of the photo is shown the victims are all marked dead.

This effect requires destroying a photo in each performance, but the 2 required pictures are printed on one 4x6 photograph so your costs remain extremely low for the impact it provides.

A side-effect of learning this trick is learning how to force a spectator to tear off a specific quarter from a card, business card or photograph. Even if you never perform The Forgotten or He's Not Here you'll get your money's worth on this one force. It's that good.

Highly Recommended.

(I have no connection to Jamie Daws, I had never heard of him or his effects until he posted The Scream 2015 in Spooky. I was researching his site before that purchase and came across these effects and feel that the folks here would appreciate knowing about them)

All of his photo effects kick ***. He's Not Here and Scream are my go to photo effects. Hampton Falls by Tony Chris is awesome also.

Just bought The Deceased. I love it; this looks awesome! It is really creepy - just seen it on the Alakazam site.

I now own 4 of Jamie's products and have not been disappointed by any of them. Buy anything he has, you won't be disappointed. I think everything is priced too low, but if that's the only bad thing I can say It's not really bad.

Hey folks, I have a "just waking up, half asleep, drinking coffee #1" question..

Probably off topic as well...damn I'm talented.
Anyway, I'm wanting to slim up my wallet with slimmer pics for Heirloom.
Any suggestions on photo paper?
(I.e., good looking, wallet durable, thin.)
I think slimming the whole thing down will allow for carrying Heirloom and KK.
(I don't do them back to back, but I do like to have options.)

Anyway, just a morning wake up rant.

Hope the days treating everyone well Smile

Jamie -- from the video -- can the spectator choose any card/person to think about or is it always the man?

I would be interested in knowing this as well. It looks good either way.

Hey guys!

So He's Not Here is finally available again! Smile But ever since I put it out, I always wanted to send it with a DVD and thanks to Alakazam, it now comes with a beautiful produced DVD with props and it even comes with the original PDF!

magringo, there are two different people that can be seen to vanish. One is a man and one is a woman! We talk about how to routine it to use both at the same time or just one each time! It is up to you! Smile

If youre interested in the Dark Series, please check out my Alakazam Academy Course too! Its on the 18th October and should be a really great night! Lots of new ideas and potentially a sneak peak at whats to come in the Dark Series next year! Ill be performing my Magic Circle Act and breaking it down bit by bit and talking over spirit slates, photos, spirit bells and loads more! It wont be available after the 18th so if you'd like to attend, please sign up. It would be great to see everyone there and have a more in-depth discussion of all things bizarre! Smile

If you want to check out the new trailer for He's Not Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqnt_ROZWAY

Check out the Alakazam Academy Course here: https://www.alakazam.co.uk/product-Tackl......017.html

How can folks who purchased prior to this release, get just the DVD?

Thanks,

Hey afinemesh! Im afraid since this is a separate release and produced by Alakazam and not myself, the DVD cannot be purchased separately. But I hope those who enjoyed the original get some kind of worth out of the DVD instructions!
