I have this video as well as both of his books, and I don't believe that any routines from Pure Effect are on the tape. In my opinion, this is a wonderful tape. My favorite, are his various handlings for a "thought of card" effect, especially the Invisable Deal.

Gregory,

Actually many effects from Pure effect appear on the video tape including those you just mentioned.

George,

You're right. It's been awhile since I've looked at the book, so I took it off the shelf and did fine those same routines. Although, I believe Derren includes more variations of his verbal card forces and thought of card routines on the tape. Plus, it's nice to actually see him perform these effects.

I doubt it.

I would expect Derren to further distance himself from the magic community in the future as quite frankly, we are an embarrassment.

We spend a fortune on buying secrets and then spend a ridiculous amount of energy dismissing them as **** because most of the people who access this site are amateurs and don't understand the art of performing.

If Derren has any sense, he won't release any of his real work. And to answer the initial question, Devil's Picturebook contains most of the the main card effects revealed in Pure Effect.

My favorite thing on the tape has nothing to do with mentalism. I laughed out loud when I saw the card under box. Fantastic!

I believe that H&R magic books (who have just re-issued) "Absolute Magic" are negotiating with Derren to release "The Devils Picturebook" in DVD format. This may well be out before Christmas!

To my mind, Derren is just miles ahead of just about everyone else. He's the one mind reader who actually pays attention to the process of reading minds! I suppose card folks can think of this as a tape of cool card tricks since it is, in some senses, indeed that; but it's so much more. For those interested in mentalism, however, it's a wonderful lesson in making mentalism credible. Even if you have Pure Effect, it's definitely worth getting the tape--you'll giggle with delight at what Derren gets away with.

Is it true that no more copies of this are being released? I went to Derren's website and although it was advertised and linked me through to the worldpay secure server, elsewhere on the site it said that no more copies were available. Did it mean no more copies after those available or no more copies were available now. It's just that I don't want to send my money to a dead link. If anybody knows, clarification would be welcome.

Thanks

I ordered the tape, went trough WorldPay payment procedure, which was succesfull... and in a few minutes had an e-mail, that stated the same information.

But further down it read:
"NB: This confirmation email is not an acceptance of your order and you cannot assume that a contract exists between yourself and Derren Brown for the sale of goods or services until Derren Brown specifically confirms it. It is Derren Brown's responsibility to confirm acceptance of your order and for delivery"

Guess I just have to wait and see.

I ordered and recieved my copy (via WorldPay) last month, so there shouldn't be a problem.

The Video is really brilliant.
I really really recommend it.
I normally hate learning from video's, as I prefere to read books, but this video is absolutely top notch.
The content is incredible and he tips some really good secrets on there.
It also goes as a perfect companion to the Pure Effect, as if you didn't understand something in print it is almost certainly taught on the video.
Get it.

Hi!
I can't but agree how briliant that video is. I bought it as soon as it was released and it's been one of my favorites since then. And yes, as Landmark said this video is much more than a bunch of cool card tricks. Derren Brown's way of presenting mentalism (even with cards) is brilliant and oozes with credibility. I didn't know it was so hard to get, but it's worth the wait.
Best,
