Dan Hauss, creator of Flow, Sleeping Queen and Lit, came to us with an idea that none of us thought was possible. How could something so simple and so easy facilitate some of the best and most convincing psycho kinetic effects that any of us have ever seen?

Downfall introduces a new concept for pk effects that allows you to keep gimmicks and unnecessary items at home. Downfall uses an item that can be found virtually anywhere which makes this effect practically impromptu in any setting. There is no doubt that with the knowledge given on this DVD a new genre of pk magic will be born. We are very proud to give you Downfall.

  • No threads
  • No magnets
  • No weights
  • No blowing
  • No strings
  • Easy Setup
  • You don't even need to be in the same room

FAQ

Q: Can I do this anytime, anywhere?
A: No. Downfall can be done at many venues impromptu, but cannot be done anywhere. That said, it's perfectly suited for performance at bars, restaurants and homes. It uses something special that is almost always at those spots.

Patheticly over hyped Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 15th, 2009
I was more disappointed with this trick than any other thing I have ever paid money for in my whole life. :(

Total rippoff. You cant move cinder blocks (or anything for that matter) unless you have X in the room (highly unlikely), and a slanted table (again, unlikely), and if no one sees you place X.

In a sentence: the most pathetic trick I have ever bought.

DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY. If you are looking for something PK use the tarantula, or Jump! or Spun, in fact anything EXCEPT this trick. :P

Interesting Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 19th, 2015
This is an interesting idea that theoretically has some nice potential in the right time and place. The main issue is that Dan stopped thinking WAAAAY too soon.Absolutely zero thought went into how to actually get the gimmick from your ***** to where it needs to be. I wish you could see a clip of how absolutely pathetically unnatural and not secretive Dan looks when he does it. It is this trick more than any other that makes me upset that penguin got rid of their private forums for each trick just for the people who bought it. I'm sure somebody who bought it thought of a way to do it naturally. If anyone did, please comment with a way I can reach you (you'll see I am a verified buyer). However, absent a natural way to get this into position about 5 seconds before you perform it, this trick is basically useless (besides for the few random times that a situation randomly presents itself). As it is now, this is the type of trick I would've been delighted to know and keep in the back of my mind if it had been in some $5 magic magazine that came with 8 other half decent tricks. But for $15???

One thing I will point out is that Dan Hauss does not perform for real audiences and was probably clueless about the necessity for everything, not just the moment of magic, to not give away the secret. It's a shame he thought of it, and not somebody else who would've collaborated with somebody who would come up with a good method to set up, because it does have a lot of potential...

Disappointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 5th, 2013
Having studied PK research over the years, I was excited to learn this trick so I decided to purchase it for use in my shows. My excitement quickly turned to disappointment and I felt that I wasted my money after watching the video and learning how Dan performed the effect. I should have paid more attention to the other reviews.

For the price... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 20th, 2012
Had I paid full price, however, I might have been a little put off. But as a Cool Box special, acceptable.

As to whether I would perform this: maybe? There are a few too many conditions to pull this off without getting caught. Definitely can be done, though.

Don't know what to say... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 11th, 2012
This was cheap and I have many of the concerns others have. You should not pay much for this. I have not gotten it to work yet. Again, there are not actual live performances shown on the DVD! Big red flag. It seams like this would work much better in a larger area where people can not go near the item. My ideal set up would be to leave the object in another room and have spectators watch through a window. That would freak them out.

Overall Not so Great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 3rd, 2012
Overall not so great. The idea is good but too unreliable, if you can position it perfectly with the certain objects great but dont waste your money.

Not THAT bad... Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2010
I give this one 3 stars... I feel that this effect HAS potential, and WILL jumpstart your creativity. The problem WITH this however is that it generally ISN'T practical for real world situations and you won't always have access to the material you need to perform this effect.

I dunno. I like the concept, and think that it was worth 15 dollars... I don't however like how impractical the method is. If you are looking for an interesting pipe-dream to get that creativity flowing, look no further.

If you are looking for a good, practical, PK effect... Look elsewhere.

In the works Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2010
This is a effect in the works. No timing or live performances are on the DVD so it makes it hard to see how it plays in live performances. I can see myself in a live situation at a sit down restaurant doing this but I can tell you one thing. You won't be doing it on the street. It is a situation effect. A nice effect to know but..what are you gonna do? Dan Hauss teaches this great and papercrane does a good job with production. It's cheap and it's a pk effect. You need to know that magic isn't real and that there are methods behind things like this and you have to accept whatever it is.
