Topic: PSYCHO*metry by Anthony Black: A Review
Message: Posted by: DrTodd (Jun 30, 2013 01:50PM)
I was very pleased to have received this today. I love bizarre Mentalism that implicitly invokes the dark side and allows the performer to create a routine that fits with his or her own understanding of what constitutes darkness. Anthony Black achieves this flexibility and combines it with a very powerful impact. Imagine a simple set on stage with a wooden box, some gloves, and some objects. The participant really takes part in this routine and gets to feel the story. If this is performed correctly, spines will be chilled, and gasps will be heard.

I love routines that require hunting for supplies and that allow me to put my own touch on them. This is just such a routine. The supplies in this case will probably be hanging around in any good bizarrist's lair.

The method is a snap, but very cleverly conceived, while the story is compelling, scary, and very unsettling as the participant slowly realised in what way he or she is engaged in the events.

Seasoned bizarrists will love this and really make it work.

Highly recommended.

Todd
