Hi people, any one can advice me if haunted deck is really that good? read an effect from "Korem without limits" on the net and it seems really cool. Believe that there is a gimmick but could the deck be handled by spectator? Thanks.

There are a few versions of the haunted deck. One where it's
one big gimmick, one where you can borrow a deck...

But I've also noticed that M. Ammar teaches a 'Haunted Deck' trick
on his Easy to Master CM's, volume 3 that is.

I think a saw a glimps of it in the preview. Can someone give me some info on this trick?
Or a complete review of volume 3 also would be great...

The haunted deck is pretty good. you can make it yourself if you know the secret. i once saw penn and teller do a haunted deck routine where instead of the deck just cutting by itself they put worms on top of the deck to make it look like the worms found the card. and to answer your question no the pack cant be examined.

Get Loops and you'll have your haunted deck, plus more. Best part of all, your haunted deck can be examined, even borrowed...and still you'll do the effect with ease.

I know a version (marketed) where only one card has to be gimmicked (and its barely gimmicked at all.) You can un-gimmick it during the performance too. I'd say its the cleanest Haunted Deck effects ever.

I have a haunted deck and love it! I also know a version where after the cards are replaced in the deck, the deck is set on a table and then covered with a big glass bowl. This was done byu Doug Henning on one of his T.V. specials.

Since there is more than one method of doing the effect, it may not be cost effective to invest in them all. With the one I use, cards are handled by both myself and the spectators in such a way to present it so the spectators don't suspect it is gimmicked. So, I am happy with it. I can even do it with a glass bowl as mentioned above.

One thing. After I purchased mine, I had to modify it. Not that it didn't work, it was just too obvious.

Again, I recomend it. 8)
