Patrick Redford's "Prevaricator" is more than a mentalism effect-it's a concept that uses no gimmicks or props. Redford shares his diabolical method for detecting a lie, and discovering who is hiding a borrowed object and which hand they are hiding it in.

Two spectators are handed an object (say, a crumpled bill) and invited to play a game: one spectator will be the liar and one will tell the truth. While your head is turned, one of the two spectators takes the object. You, the mentalist, always know who the liar is, and which hand they are hiding the bill in. You can repeat the game indefinitely, and close by divining the serial number on the borrowed bill.

Prevaricator is unlike any DVD you have seen. Because the system involved requires a spectator, you are given a performance practice session, so you can practice along with Patrick Redford, in the comfort of your own home. This skill-building feature will allow you to perform "Prevaricator" with confidence, the first time you try it.

With a running time of 112 minutes and an ebook (included on the DVD) tipping 100 pages (with contributions from Barrie Richardson, Gregory Wilson, Banachek, Ben Blau, Garrett Thomas, Paul Vigil and more), this is a package and a principle of enormous value.

Just some of the raves that we've already received from the best mentalists in the world:

"I have known and eagerly followed the creations of Patrick ever since he was George (or is it the other way around?) His deep thinking on the Truth/Liar object location is of value to anyone who wants to grow from owning props to possessing power."-Michael Weber

"This is one of the best "psychological magic effects" in years! Direct, simple, and baffling" -Patrick Kuffs

"Prevaricator and it's extensions is one of the closest things to real mind reading... because it is. No gimmicks , no double talk or dual reality, it is what you would do if you read minds... because you do. Put your two cents in this miracle and sufficient practice and if you are not rewarded, I will personally pay for your investment. I have no stock or investment in this marvel of psychological control, but a deep respect for its method and presentation." -Marc Salem

"For just a moment, forget about Prevaricator...forget about the effect, the method, everything-it's just another piece of mentalism. Instead, focus on what you can learn about mentalism from Prevaricator, and then you will really have something." -Rick Maue

"Most mentalists are looking of that "holy grail" of mentalism. That one effect that is really magick, the one effect that is "real." Patrick Redford has come as close as it gets when it comes to this with Prevaricator. One would be mistaken to think this is just a single effect. It is so much more than that, in this booklet you will learn tools that will help you in all your other mentalism presentations. Prevaricator hands you subtleties that will help you advance your artistic mentalist abilities get you thinking outside the box." - Banachek

"I remember how Prevaricator struck me when it was first published. It came as a kick in the head. Though packaged as a modest little booklet, it packed a wallop. I hadn't seen anything like it and hadn't a clue why it worked. I didn't believe it would work until I tried it. But work it does. I've used it successfully ever since in connection with my own truthteller routine for an extra kick and to rule out any logic puzzle. I'm thrilled that you're finally releasing the long-awaited DVD and latest thoughts on this classic effect. They're a godsend. I can't wait to put this wealth of information into practice." -Leo Boudreau

"It's not often that I am sooooo badly fooled. If Prevaricator got me only once, it could've been lucky. Twice was impressive. But reliably over and over and over, it was downright remarkable!" -Gregory Wilson

Running Time: Approximately 112mins

Top Notch Mentalism!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 22nd, 2011
in this day and age, so many effects, in both magic & mentalism are simply a matter of recycling...old tricks performed packaged and marketed by someone out to make a quick buck...(I should jump on this bandwagon myself, but I have higher standards)...& at first glance you might think that this is the case with Prevaricator, especially if you know "Ring of Truth"...but this couldn't be further from the Truth...Patrick Redford seems to have taken on the pursuit & art of mentalism with the utmost interest & integrity...read the shape series!!! And this DVD is a prime example of his earnest indevores and devotion...it is 112 minutes of top notch explanation, a practice session build in, "Prevaricator theater" in which the demo performances are broken down and explained in detail & AND!!! A 100 page ebook that goes into the history, progression and development of the concept and exhaustive information on the technique...if you are looking for a modern classic in mentalism...THIS IS THE TICKET!!! beginning or advanced level, you will not be disappointed!

This is really good Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 25th, 2010
The anonymous guy form London down there knows nothing about this trick. Redford's version uses true mind reading techniques and is completely different from Banachek's logic puzzle approach. This trick is not a logic puzzle at all. If you don't know the secret, it would be impossible to come up with the right method. This trick does need some practice to master the techniques, and it has a certain probability that can go wrong, but Redford also teach you how to make a safety net as well. Once more, this DVD contains real mind reading secrets. So if you're tired about guarantee-to-work mentalism tricks and want to go for something real, you have to watch this one.

very good Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 13th, 2012
this trick is super easy to learn, after watching the method and practicing for like 5 minutes I already did it 55 times perfectly, it might be a little bit harder for other people to learn it than it was for but it still worth the effort.
the trick is very strong, and very easy to do

Good effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 5th, 2012
This just works. I'm new to mentalism, and I've done this just after watching the DVD. As an actor I also have a focused look witch helps, but you will easily get it right! This just works and its just mind reading, no "but". Only takes 4 stars just because it could go even deeper in make it "movie like" mindreading.

Great effect with great outs Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 25th, 2012
This effect is very straight to the point and if done properly can be amazing. The true effect is not 100% and will take a lot of real world practicing to get a hang of it. Anyone who says they could do it 100% after 5 minutes is exaggerating. With that said, he also included plenty of safety nets for you to use while you are getting used to things. While they aren't as straight forward as the original routine, they are still just as effective. Once you learn how to handle your outs, you are well on your way to performing this amazing effect. During the performance sections he also gives a couple amazing ideas to incorporate into your routine as well.

The teaching is very detailed. He gives staged and then real world examples. I was very impressed with these sections.

Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and cannot wait to add it into my show.

Great mentalism! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 28th, 2013
I'll be the first to admit that this is great mentalism, but you're gonna have to be good at reading people's facial expressions and body language. This is not a self-working effect. The DVD offers great instruction but at the end of the day, you're just gonna have to go out and try it. That's the only way to really learn it.

What I've Been Looking For!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 18th, 2012
As a total amateur I've been wanting to learn some really good mentalism. Got this in the mail around lunch time and was performing it on family and neighborhood friends by late afternoon and IT WORKS!!! And the beautiful thing is that I can do it anytime anywhere since it requires no gimmicks. Just simple skill and practice. Good stuff!
