Wounded by Robert Smith (DVD) Intense, powerful and a little scary! Definitely not for everyone... in fact, not for most! Just watch the demo, we wouldn't want to ruin the surprise.

Ok, if you read my post in Digital Conviction then you know I was waiting for this to arrive. In reality nothing comes with the DVD so they should have just made it a Digital Download to begin with.
There are THREE methods of Stigmata taught here. I really appreciate the fact that Robert went all out on this. There's one method for Bleeding Tears and one method for Pulse Stopper.
Starting with Pulse Stopper. I do not condone this method. There's a safer method by Wayne Houchin and, if you've read any magic book in creation, all Illusionists warn that the method taught here "could" cause medical issues.
Enough said on that.
Bleeding Tears... BRAVO! Great job on everything! This effect is worth half the DVD price alone.
Stigmata... the three methods taught are actually two methods with a prep. I'm not proud to say this, but I'm 38 years old (I know, oldness... ugh), never once has anyone ever told me to "cause harm" to my body to perform... until now. Enough said on that without giving away the method.
Again, I appreciate Robert's ability to create and bring us awesome stuff, but unfortunately I can't say I liked it (there's only two choices for rating, please make a "MEH" rating in that drop down). The moment bodily harm comes into play it's a "No Go". There are so many "possible" repurcussions to this DVD that even the warnings aren't enough. I'm at a stand still.
UNIVERSAL IMPRESSION 5 STARS
DIGITAL CONVICTION 2 STARS
WOUNDED 3 STARS
Safety first, an illusionist shouldn't chance health over effect. There's so many diseases and such out there that one mistake could cause a long (well, short term dependent on what you may catch) term issue that could effectively end it all. Just because the Amazing Jonathan eats Razorblades on stage doesn't mean he's REALLY eatting them... a trick is a trick and a lesson... well, a bad lesson may turn fatal.

Wounded has many great effects that are very powerful. The only things that i don't like are: the long, messy setups and the the fact u must buy some props. If you are willing to buy the props and practice these effects you will get great reactions and people will think your a god.
Interesting concept, though not a fan Report this review

So I got this as a gift with a sale penguin was having, I would never have bought it though. I am a fan of some of the creepy stuff. I have played around with saw, working on swallowing razor blades, I do the human blockhead, this is the 1st time though I was told to hurt myself for an effect. It has a warning to consult a physician before performing, without giving away the method I dont see any physician saying this is a good idea. There is a lot I feel could go wrong, and I could not even finish the dvd because I felt this really was not a good idea. If your really into this kind of stuff, the concept is interesting, my advice though is to be carefull

If you are serious in magic in the sense that it is an art, buy this effect. It does require carefull setup in front of a mirror to avoid mild pain in some of the effects. The idea of stigmata interests me greatly, so I love this effect. The stigmata of the hand effect I don't find practical for a walk around situation, but the eye's are great. For Halloween, it's great. For normal situation, you can cry on command. So for that, this effect is worth the money you need to put out to get it.
