Just A Sunday Post #35



Presenting a Brand New Illusion
Peter Loughran's Pierced Alive
Visually skewer and separate your body into 3 pieces!

Effect: A menacing looking cabinet is introduced with 2 long spears hung on its front door. The illusion is rotated 360 degrees. The back door is opened up and the performer (or an assistant) is locked inside of the cabinet. There are two handles on top of the illusion for them to hold on to while the torture begins. The spears are removed and the front door is opened showing the performers body in full view. The first spear is thrust through the side of the cabinet visually piercing the performers midsection. The spear is thrust all the way through the performer's sides, and out the other end of the cabinet. The second spear is now thrust through the performer's body from back to front. The audience can see this spear penetrate right though the front of the performers stomach with a devastating blow! Next the assistant pulls the spear running through his back and stomach, taking the performers midsection along with it, as it slides along the other spear going through the side of his body. His midsection is slid all the way over to the other side of the cabinet separating his body into 3 separate pieces while skewered by two criss-crossing spears. All is reversed and the performer steps out unharmed!

About Pierced Alive:
- This can be performed completely surrounded.
- The illusion breaks down for travel.
- Pierced Alive only takes a few minutes to set up.
- Pierced Alive requires no special lighting or staging and is completely self contained.
- May be performed with the magician or his assistant.


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DEMO VIDEO SHOULD BE PLAYED WITH SOUND, AND IS INTENDED TO BE A RIDICULOUS AND COMEDIC SPOOF ON TRADITIONAL "B" STYLE HORROR MOVIES - ENJOY!



Is this in any good? Or am I blind because I know the method?

Oh this is BAAAAAAAAD...and the fact that Loughran trademark is "Masters Of Illusion" is even more lame...

Wow. Outstanding Illusion.
The fact that the body separates without any logical reason is nice. This also could work well for clown shows! Imagine the possibilities!

After you get pierced alive, your body separates into 3 parts, then you suddenly shit out the freely chosen card from the spectator, transforming it into a pigeon! And all without any logical reason or sense!
Sure, one thing has nothing to do with the other, but that didn't prevent master of disaster here to fuck things up.

So fucking stupid.

Who is this for? Church shows? Jesus Christ this is bad.

The funniest part about this is that some people will actually load up their shitty vans with props like this, tell their wives that they're entertainers, and actually perform this doghsit in public.

That's strange because being kidnapped and drug unwillingly into a magic show is usually how I feel about most "street magician" performances.
