Click to enlarge "When hell is full...the dead will do card Tricks"-Todd Diamond
From the amazing mind of Todd Diamond and his magic buddy Bizzaro comes this great title with four routines you will die for, including:
"Bamf" by Bizzaro:
Set in a funeral home and performed on a coffin, It all begins with four Jacks being shown freely and set aside into two packets, separated by colors. A card is chosen and put face down between the two face up black Jacks. The cards are spread, showing the arrangement. With no sneaky moves -- just a snap of the fingers -- the cards are turned over, still spread, but only the two face down cards are seen. The spread is turned over again: the selected card has vanished. The black Jacks are dropped on the table and the red Jacks -- which have not been touched since the card was selected -- are spread and, face down between them, is the chosen card. The visuals here, the blocking and the flat-out killer cleanliness, made this one worth the price of the disc. It's powerful stuff. It's also the first thing I"ve seen from Bizarro and all I can say is I love this guy and want to see more.
Coins From the Grave:
The visual and deceptive vanish of two coins.
Spellbound for the Dead:
A practical spellbound routine with a surprise finish.
A card is selected and lost in the pack, while an indifferent card is held at the fingertips, turned over so its back faces the spectator, then turned back around and shown to have changed into the selected card. The clean appearance of a selected card from the middle of the deck. This is a great change and could have its own dvd.
• As a special bonus!
an Amazing Johnathan interview. This is worth the price of the DVD! In a rare interview, Johnathan lays down his ideas on performing and using "blue" material in a show.
"The latest disc from Todd Diamond, is a collection of four beautiful effects, a shocking and entertaining interview, and enough attitude for a hundred traditional magic videos. The result? Something that may end up being the year's best bargain in magic videos.... "Bamf" in my eyes is worth the price of this disc... In a Blink: 10 Out of 10
