For a partime illusion show, do you think the fog machines at party city etc, will these flow fog as good as the 100 dollar version?

Depends on what type of environment you're using it in. Generally, the cheapy fog machines you buy at party supply stores never hold up. How often are you going to be using the unit? How much at a time? How big of a space?

To me a cheapy fog machine is around a hundred bucks. I would not recamend a litefx fogger somtimes sold for thirty or forty dollars because they will start to spit hot fluid out. Check out http://www.theatrefx.com

I agree with Fitz..the cheap ones will spit out hot fluid. I've had some not so cheap ones do that too. If you are planning on using it a lot then spend some extra money and buy a better unit. You won't regret it.

Plus unless you are spending a lot of money your fog will never stay on the ground instead it will mist. you need to kool the fluid before letting it out to keep it on the floor.

I bought a cheap fog machine last year that does ok for what I need it for. I already had a wireless remote control "Fog Hog" that is quite good, but I needed another machine for a haunted house. The cheap one I bought at K Mart does the job, plus it has an auto timer that can be adjusted to shoot fog at timed intervals. I use it outdoors so I don't know if it spits fluid or not. There is different types of fog fluid too, and some of the cheap ones don't seem to work as well.
