It's a shame "Memories of Emily" has vanished because it sounded as though it would have been a very dark routine.

Swamp Water - a play in itself.
😉
BTW Murder by Mail was banned in some states!
Jim Magus almost went to jail over it in Georgia!

I would love to read "Memories of Emily". I believe even in the most morbid and ghastly stories are an opportunity for catharsis and empathy...

...and fun! However, due to darned covid-19, I'm thinking how could I do "Murder by Mail" over the internet or telephone?

Robert Watkin's death date effect "Thanatos" in his "Positive/Negative" is a humdinger.

One of the most gory/geeky performances I have seen so far (they even seem to be quite known in France, having appeared in magic magazines etc.) - watch their videos:

VRS from Gemini is the most messed-up dark effect ever. I have expanded my set with a few additional items, including a priest’s ring, some genuine ex-Vatican items, and an empty holy water bottle. It’s all wonderfully dark, but you need to gauge your audience. The Gemini props are exquisite.

From Hell by Dan Baines is certainly very very dark, mainly because it uses actual photos of murdered (horribly murdered) women. I performed it one time and there were some angry comments about using grotesque pictures of slaughtered women for entertainment purposes

Abberline's Repository really adds to the From Hell effect.

Yes some of our effects & routines can be too edgy for some people, especially these type of effects with women & children, which there are several effects on these.....usually I make sure I know the people I would perform these types of effects for that are ok/can stomach....

We want to be respectful & entertain at the same time & it's a touchy balance. For some spectators I've found can be too powerful.

The same reason I don't offer everyone the opportunity to attend the embalming of their loved one. Some can handle it, some cannot. It is important to know your audience.
