EXCELLENT REVIEW! I'm quite interested in Houdini's Influence. It was rumored that this was done with "Mastermind Deck" formatted photos but he clearly shows the corners on the pics.

Wow, wish every review was like this, thanks. I saw Wayne live at Tannens and he covered all that material there as well. Awesome magic from one of the best.

Great review!

I had the pleasure of seeing Wayne Houchin lecture last year. I bought Houdini's Influence and it is a fabulous trick. I think this has to be a very old principle but the presentation is what makes this so different. The pictures of Houdini's original cards from his last performance is very intriguing to a spectator. It's a card trick without being a card trick! Wayne obviously put in a lot of work in developing the pictures of Houdini's playing cards.

I'm not sure how this trick works on the DVD format - there must be a data section to the DVD where you can print your own pictures and the newspaper clippings of Houdini's death. When I purchased the routine from Wayne it came with the photos and a data CD of the newspaper clips.

I would highly recommend this trick. It can play as a bizarre magic routine, a straight-up mentalism routine,a storytelling routine or just a great magic trick if that is how you choose to present it.

From Wayne's site;
Q: Are the Houdini’s Influence files & props included?

A: No. Houdini’s Influence is sold as a separate product. This DVD features a performance and explanation of the effect. We have released a small number of Houdini’s Influence sets and plan to release more in the future. When more are available, we will offer a discount to those of you who purchase this DVD.
