I got this a week ago and I like it. I haven't performed it yet though. Waiting for Halloween. Dave came out with the "Five Piece Principle" which is simple but useful. I can see using it and adopting to my own needs. It's a trick with pictures similar to Jamie Daw's SCREAM 2.0. It's similar in terms of emotions and reaction you would get but different "technique" and story. Sorry - I can't say too much. If you likes Jamie's SCREAM you would like this even more. It's very clean and fair. I got it for £16.49 with free UK delivery. It's worth it in my opinion. You get link to video and some pdfs on the same day and the pictures will come few days later. I'm no friend of Dave Forrest and I get no benefits from posting this.

I got this a few days ago too. I love effects involving photographs. Despite modern digital photography, people still have an ingrained belief that they can trust the evidence of their own eyes in a photograph, that it's something reliable, and that it won't change in their own hands. This has a very strong finish, with a genuinely freakish and disturbing image.

I haven't thought about this but your statement explains why people take pictures at my funerals. I thought it was because they liked the cute costumes I put on the cadavers but I may be wrong. What better way to prove your loved one is dead than to take a picture of them all laid out in their casket. Thanks for your insight. Now if I can just figure out why they are always kissing on them. Don't get me wrong, I don't find anything wrong with the family and friends hugging corpses and maybe a peck on the forehead, but when it comes to french kissing, I have to draw the line.

I also bought this & recieved it last week & pretty much what pawel wrote says it best.

David does a great job of explaining ot thru a vid link, there is a little simple DYI-ing to complete & use but the 1 item you either have or can purchase anywhere very cheap, other than that everything is supplied & link to download more Pic's should the originals ever wear out.

As pawel says, I can see being able to adapt this to my own needs & effect, but I love this & can packs small & looks as to hit big.
Haven't used it yet but hoping to next 2 Sat lil shows plannwd.

Freak is definitely a great worth getting pic effect & works in great next to Jamie Daws he's not here, the forgotten & scream ( without the scream loud ending ) only with its own Freaky ending, pertect for the Halloween season !!

There's no jump scare in this one, is there? I was sincerely disappointed in another product due to that.

No jump scare, just a freaky visual ending.

No explosives and smoke if that's what you mean 😀

More along the lines of visual impact like He's not here & The forgotten but not Jamie's method......a completley new method & freaky ending

Curious. Not super expensive, I might give it a go.

I just did as well. Hope there is not too much 'arts and crafts', as I don't always follow through on an effect when that is a requirement....

Got mine yesterday and performed it for my 12 year old last night. He declared it cool.

Hey just received this one. Watch ed half the video. Love the handling! I was just wondering if anyone has used rubber cement for the DYI as I have that on hand but don't want to ruin the Portraits.

Thanks

Rubber cement is the easiest to overcome. Better than super glue.

Maybe the corpse French-kissed first!
