Have you ever performed an effect that literally made everyone at the table jump in surprise? Would you like to? João Miranda helps answer both questions with his diabolical Haunted Box, a very clever illusion guaranteed to amaze your audience.
Imagine this scene: Spectators seated around a table. The magician weaves a tale about a card box he picked up, one that displays inexplicable and even peculiar behavior as it goes bump in the night. Is it the ghost of Houdini or a notorious gambler? The magician opens the box and removes a box of cards and a Sharpie, having a spectator select and sign ANY card and then put the card ANYWHERE in the deck. Now the fun begins. The spectator puts cards one by one into the card box while the magician turns his back or even exits the room. Suddenly, without warning, SNAP! The box shuts itself. When the next card of the talon is examined, it is the selected card. The box refused to take this obviously marked card.
The surprise spectators feel when that box closes will stick with them for a good while, and the dealer...well, they may not sleep well that night!
But now the real surprise: This is a 100% self-working effect. No threads, remotes, wires, or spectral assistants. Just concentrate on presentation and let the box do its job! While an obvious close-up powerhouse, the Haunted Box is big enough to play to a whole room! And boy does it close a show!
So treat your spectators to some genuine surprise they won't be able to shake off so easily and buy your Haunted Box today!
