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.

Infuriated Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 27th, 2014
I really really wanted to like this trick. I was very impressed with the trailer and was excited to learn and preform this trick.

With that said, I was shocked to hear the method. As someone stated, this is a very old method. The revision is so minor that it almost doesn’t change anything. It’s extremely hard to watch the performances (especially the second one). In some instances their dreams are practically forced upon them and the questions are extremely vague and cliche …

Performer: “You’ve had a dream where someone’s chasing you, right?”. “”
Spectator: “No”
Performer: “I mean, have you EVER had a dream like that?”

Absolutely ridiculous!

What further infuriates me is that the explanation is just as ridiculously… So unnecessary long. A lot of chatter that has really nothing to do with preforming the trick. All the nuances discussed are laughable, as if that’s going to matter. The proof is in the example performances and the exhausted method. This trick is clearly being pushed by Patrick to bring in money as Dan looks extremely bored and appears to have the look as tone "Why am I even hear".

Stay very far away from this trick at ALL costs!!

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.

Nice but not worth the price Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 19th, 2014
It's a fairly in depth and complex method for something not very original. There's a few good ideas, but it's not really a "masterpiece of modern mentalism".

Great Routine, Poorly explained Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 20th, 2014
This is truly a great routine . . . But it is poorly explained.

Patrick goes into great detail, but the explanation is not as clear as it should be. All the info is there, the presentation jumps around a bit. First they give a couple real life examples, then go into the history, then go into the details without giving adequate framework of how the trick is done.

The way Patrick performs this is well thought out, but I think it is overly complex. This can be done with business cards with no folding (much easier), and the volunteer takes away your business card, not just the billet.

Patrick also goes into other presentations, including a business card presentation, but it is obvious he has not thought them through.

Everything is there for a great routine, you just have to work at it more than you should. He goes into billet folding in great detail, and I think is completely unnecessary - especially if you are using business cards.

All in all the effect is a 5 star (higher if I could), but the explanation could be much better.

Damn Strong Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 27th, 2014
Trust me, this is a masterpiece in routining. I know you will think people will understand the principle in use, I can honestly tell you, they don't. I've performed this about 4 times as of now in professional conditions.

It's great.

Will never use it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 20th, 2014
The trick is done probably how you think its done. The only new thing i learned is his numbering system and its cleaver but not leaver enough to make the trick worth it. Im disappointed because i will never use this trick.

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".
