What are the dimensions of the box? I'll find out Monday but imagining is lots of fun.

Something very strange was waiting on me to get home this evening.

I cannot get over how good this is. Top notch production on every single element of VRS. The box, envelope and letter, the aged crosses, the thing about the penny...
And the back story can be researched (googled) in real time by the specs.

I will post more about this soon

WOW Vic. WOW!!!!!!!

Received mine on the 9th, right about the time the Café servers to a dive for 3 or so days,......hmmmm could this have been the power of VRS......!?!?
Been remodeling my new place & took it there to open package in its new special Hauntiques room Smile As in previous post reviews, another awesome top notch product / effect for Vic !!
The letter looks SO authentic you'd swear it was the real deal as also with the rest of the other items in the box ! Love the box too with its angel footings.

When I brought it back home to the apt, I showed my daughter ( she's 33 ), she read the letter & looked at the crossed & when she googled the girls name & found the case history on this, she was freaked out ! Told my wife that I had a box of evil exorcised crosses & the wife wanted the box OUT of the house !!!!!!! LoL

They both don't know that all these items we have are props & thinks they're all real ! LoL & they are both pretty religious minded, my OE Spiritus Magnus & Spiritas I have to hide......LoL
But they're reactions to reading the history on it & seeing the letter & crosses I LOVED it !! Really cements the effect for those that are google fearing - this works to your advantage !! Matter of fact looks like they're releasing a movie this year on it Smile

Thank you Vic for this awesome effect & your speedy shipping & responses !! & finally able to get on here to post my thoughts & review -

So I've had this in my possession Smile around a week and I have to say VRS scares me. The backstory is so disturbing on several levels.
The props are very nice and of the high quality you would expect. The crosses are beautifully aged and the letter and envelope done at the highest level of believability.
The box is very nice and can hold extra items but you won't need many extras. Trust me.

If you're looking for something to present to your audience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives this is it.


Gee whiz Vic. I'm having trouble even finding the words to describe it. This deserves some kind of reward for being so twisted.

The tale, the atmosphere, the props, the backstory (which is true) are all simply spot-on. This could not be more ideal. It happens in the control of your spec. You simply reveal your tale and tell your story whilst the spec works her way down to the one, inevitable, inexorable, uncompromising (and unsettling!) truth.

As has already been stated, very clean. Very natural. A self-working masterpiece that leads to an unforgettable experience and a shocking revelation.

A moment to learn. You can perform it within minutes of opening the package . . . but you will want to give this one a good deal of thought, scripting, and trial runs to tease out the full flavour of and do full justice by this stunner. Great for an opener because it ends so clean. Great for a 'transition' piece because it links to so many themes. Great for a closer because it ends so strongly. Great as a one-off because it really can stand all by itself.

Highly recommended.

So many powerful endorsements. Such a lovely looking set. My indecision has been cast out.

Prof BC, have you ever seen anything else like VRS? For myself it's a perfect creepy effect bar none. The subject matter by it's nature is disturbing but the way the true backstory and props work together elevates this to something that really hasn't been seen before. I still cannot get over how good VRS is.

Hmm, not a question that I am entirely comfortable answering because the honest answer might seem to take some of the polish off the apple, which I would be loathe to do, but, yes, of course, the method is quite familiar, even classic. The *context* is what sets this little miracle apart . . . that, and the exquisite props. VRS has a very high creep factor, to be sure, which places it amongst the best of the best to my mind, but other effects (such as Inferno, just to name one) have the same *sort* of wonderfully true backstory bang. I would also humbly suggest my own Outcast Dead as another such example, though there are certainly others that combine a chillingly true backstory (all the Ripper effects, for example) with a superb effect. Paul Prater, for example, has a brilliance for this style of approach, as clearly others do as well.

That is simply my honest answer that should IN NO MANNER take away from how utterly marvelous Vic's latest effect really is. I repeat everything I said above about it. It really is wonderful--and, yes, amongst very certainly the most wonderful offerings available in our community.

VRS remains firmly on my HIGHLY Recommended list.

Thank you Prof.

Possible application of stigmata ala wounded by Robert Smith depending on the venue and presentation.

Also goes great with your Heaven & H3ll pendulum if you own it. Simple methods are great its all in the story and presentation. You just have to be ok with dark subjects.

VRS, sounds wonderfully creepy. Smile
Con-grats to all that own and Vic on his creation.

The top of my list, of all time favorites is PROF BC's, 'The Outcast Dead'.
The perfect backstory/prop for what could be ... (REAL) !!!

Funny side story related to VRS.
I am absolutely OCD about not getting tripped up on stage,
due to avoidable situations...
So, since getting VRS, I've learned the full prayer in Latin.
Also been doing a fair amount of research as recommended.
And...a hell of a lot of interesting fun is being had all around Smile

Good, thought provoking, interesting, inherently "spooky",
educational, incredibly well thought out, historically accurate,
and aesthetically gorgeous to boot.

That's my short list of praise.

Vic, is a stand up solid good man of his word,
that obviously takes extreme pride in his productions.
(That is the cherry on top for me)

So, yeah...go get this so that he sells out.
I have #20, and from the looks of things, the 100 units will not be around long.

All the best fellow Magi Smile
