Psychological magic at its FINEST

"Groundbreaking." -Patrick Redford

"You can't go wrong with Gidrah" -Linking Ring Magazine

"One of the deep thinkers in Magic" -Phil Reda

"A profound thinker in the art of mentalism" -nboisen

Reading someone's DREAMS is one of the most intimate experiences you can create as a mind-reader. It can be surprisingly powerful, but without the right mentor, it can easily fall flat.

Few people can read-minds as well as Patrick Redford. So we were THRILLED when he offered to share his presentation for Gidrah. A beautiful effect that has achieved underground cult status. It's a secret guarded tightly by top pros.

You're going to love this.

Meh... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 31st, 2014
I bought this trick thinking it would be an amazing addition to my street magic. The effect is quite good but the method isn't fantastic. It is quite similar to various other tricks like "Transmission" by Marc Spelmann. On the other hand, it is quite inventive and is a good solution to a few of the problems some mind-reading tricks hold. The explanation video is quite difficult to understand, mainly due to visibility and lighting. There are a few slights in here which are a bit tricky and will take quite a lot of practice to pull off. If I have the chance, I would get a refund.

Old method with a couple of new ideas Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 23rd, 2014
Not worth the money really. The ad doesn't show much and that's because it's a pretty old standard method. They've thought through a few ideas to make some parts new, but it's not exactly a "masterpiece of modern mentalism".

I think this is an effect that you can transform in a very nice piece of mentalism only if you believe in it (like all,but this need a little bit more of you),honestly this not fit in me....maybe I will try this before with some friend but.....

Good, but missing details Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 18th, 2014
This video teaches you the Gidrah method, which is a variation on a method known by experienced mentalist. They show how to perform with various sized pads, index cards and business cards. The Gidrah method has some beautiful little subtleties to polish the effect.

They went into some theory about what order to present your predictions in for maximum effect, but seem to have forgot to teach a major point. The method for the first thing you do, finding out whose dream your thinking of is glossed over. Hardly covered at all, no mention of how to handle a potential complete miss, and how to get the little details before the spec says their dream out is not even mentioned.

The method is nice and can be adapted to a lot of routines, but I bought this in the hopes of being able to perform what I saw in the trailer. Those subtle little hits at first is why I bought it in the first place, and i felt like it could have been at least quickly glossed over.

A good product but it could have been great.

Perfect Psi Experience Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 7th, 2016
I am always looking for material that will work within the context of doing Readings or demonstating "authentic" psychic ability -- INTUITION. This effect delivers so much advantage when working from that position that it's a must have for every Psychic Entertainer that boosts his/her income off of doing Readings.

You can't go wrong with this piece.

Very good pro routine, not for duffers Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 6th, 2016
Gidrah, named after Godzilla's three-headed flying dragon foe, is yet another variation on the timeless classic Mental Epic. Yes, it does improve upon some things. Is it better than other ways of performing Mental Epic? Yes and no. Redford's improvements to Huffman's original routine do remove some of the nagging issues with that third prediction, but they add a fair degree of complexity to an already pro routine, where you have to be alert and on your game. I'm really torn here. While I like the Huffman/Redford concepts, Richard Osterlind's way of doing it with a couple of pads, a bag of change, and the coolest, slickest gimmick around works best for me, even if it might have a discrepancy. I believe that it is on the close-up installment of his new 13 Steps to Mentalism (not his Corinda's 13 Steps).

That said, I do recommend Gidrah, as long as you know what you are in for. The instruction, as someone else has pointed out, is way overdone. Where are Dan Harlan and his beautiful little 20-minute precis when you need them? Redford hits the points and the nuances but is way too eager to digress on alternate ways of doing things and fawning over Huffman's method. You'll probably have to take notes on the vital steps and moves because their explanations are separated by vast expanses of cluttered discussion. This is a shame. Gidrah is really good, but if you casually watched the download without paying close attention, you might not recognize it.

Overall, if you are a pro looking for a slick version of Mental Epic that doesn't use a suspicious-looking board, this is for you. Otherwise, I'd stay away.

Over explained Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2016
If you know any mentalism that uses three papers then you know how this is done. Now, there are some NEW twists to the effect that make it work better than the old ways for doing this kind of effect and that made me give it 4 stars.

The only thing about the DVD was that it could have been explained in half the time. If Patrick only stuck to explaining the effect and not jump around talking about the old Gidrah and other unnecessary things, I would have given it another star.

But overall, once you take apart the routine and learn the steps, and if you are a good mentalist or psychic you could have a very powerful effect that will hit hard.

Depends on YOUR skill... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 1st, 2015
...This effect is meaty..but, it really depends on how you perform and work it.

Venue..timing..all factor in.

People who are looking for self working gimmicks...do NOT purchase...go to trick roulette and roll the dice - (I personally found a few forgotten diamonds there)...GIDRAH is well done..smart. And between movement and verbal skills
- you will either fold or fly!

Sooo much stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 12th, 2014
This is a very lengthy video and it covers all aspects of the effect. And, yes, a full performance! Two even! I love when the performers make little mistakes and keep it in the video demonstration.

Great Idea and Great mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 2nd, 2014
This trick is simple but hard hitting. With a little preparation ahead of time this is a great trick. I highly recommend it. It can fit any venue but I especially like the fact that it can pack small and yet still play so big.
