Imagine that at any time, anywhere and under any conditions you could channel energy through your fingertips that would cause a deck of cards to mysteriously animate, slowly begin to shift and, as though of its own accord, cut directly to a selected card. Imagine no more - this is SCARED!

Jamie Daws (creator of smash hit effect 'The Gathering') is back with SCARED - an impromtpu haunted deck effect. A creation so devious, so ingenious and so practical, it's SCARY! And, this incredible animation of a deck of playing cards is SUPER EASY TO DO! In fact, it's almost SELF WORKING!

Jamie has taken an age old principle and invented a super streamlined, hyper-practical method to make it happen. Now there's no need to carry extra gimmicks - no thread, no wires and no magnets - the SCARED DVD arms you with the ability to fashion a cunning gaff 'on the fly', meaning you can cause any regular deck to eerily cut itself directly to a selected card at a moments notice.

On this DVD and download you'll learn the basic principle and how to fashion an ordinary playing card into an incredible 'haunted deck' gimmick in less than FIVE SECONDS! Then Jamie, together with Dave Forrest, will walk you through a variety of refinements of the original gaff and teach you everything you need to know about animating the deck including a number of exciting handling variations.

Plus, you'll learn no less than FOUR complete routines using the SCARED gaff in very clever ways that will ensure you get maximum impact out of the gimmick.

1. SCARED AGAIN - A spectral drawing on a Joker causes the deck to cut itself to a selection, then the drawing is discoverd on the selected card!

2. SCARED BLUE - Two selections are made. The deck eerily cuts to one of them and the other changes from red to blue!

3. SCARY THOUGHTS - A spectator jots down a card they have in mind. The paper is balled up and placed onto the deck which then cuts itself directly at the card!

4. TRIPLE SCARED - The deck eerily cuts to a selected card. The second card reverses itself and the third card is written on its back!

Running Time Approximately: 1hr 5min

Killer Effect (REALLY!) Report this review

I bought this as a download from another site not as a DVD... The effect is a very killer ... People freak out when i performed at the mall i talked about ghost and spirits then the deck starts to cut... On the Download which my guess is the same... They teach lots of different uses with it... the pice is not bad with all the extras on it buy it i love it!! I will use it often...

This is a really great effect but it is WAY over priced. It is worth it but i personally think it should only be cheaper since all you get is a DVD and they sit in one place and just talk the whole time. It is taught well but can be confusing but once you figure it out you can do it after practicing once. Overall a great trick but if your not sure its definitely something you will use then save your money. But it is most definitely a shocker since it is nothing like the past haunted deck tricks.

I think this is one of the best and the easiest impromptu haunted decks i ever seen!!!! You dont need anything more than a normal deck of cards !!!
But i think is overpriced, i think is too expensive for what you get (only a dvd)

If you lhave the Rasmus haunted deck Or Haunted by Petter Eggink; you can use Scared like an Alternative when you dont have your gimmicks.

If you dont have any haunted effect, i recommend you this one, is very good!!!

I love this thing. I use it all the time, and it's one of those effects that have stayed with me through the passing of time.

I love the haunted deck, but I don't like many of the IT set-ups. This effect is one of the most practical and most deceiving I've found. I normally do this in conjunction with another haunted effect that the spectator feels on, and does with, their finger (Static by Dan and Dave, also here on penguin). These two together are absolute killers. I like to do these towards the beginning, and I clean up the self-contained gimmicks by removing the jokers.

Now, of the two gimmicks this is more convenient and practical. So, if I do only one haunted effect, this is it. If I do this, I often don't even worry about cleaning up. The gimmick is pretty much undetectable after it's "turned off"
