  • You'll give it for close examination after the performance.
  • You'll perform it under any light condition with plain sunlight or in a room with a strong spotlight.
  • And you'll be always ready.
  • You'll not be hooked up.
  • Anima gimmick will give you absolute freedom.
  • You'll perform it in any condition: sitting, standing up, outdoor or indoor.
  • Perfect for strolling magic.
  • This is an angle proof version, for one to one setting or surrounding.
The Phantom Deck
Two selected cards are lost in the deck. The cards are placed in the palm and it moves in a spooky way. Part of the deck moves sideways, then moves back revealing the selected card. Now you repeat it with a second card. Now with Anima you'll perform the strong classic effect but:
  • With a borrowed deck.
  • With Anima there's NO SET-UP.
Acrobatic Matchbox
A box of wooden matches is animated in an incredible way. It slides around your hand, flipped over by itself and the drawer opens and closes under your control. It's hard to imagine until you see it yourself.


1 Special Anima Gimmick
1 Special Matchbox (No matches)
1 Hour full instructions and live performance DVD

Anima is the safest method with no risk. The most practical and useable version.

It's alright.... Report this review

I'm going to be very honest here and when I write this review I am going to tell you everything you get: What you get is a very clever gimmcik that you put in your pocket and your instantly ready to go. The Dvd that comes with it that runs about 45 min. And a match box with no matches. The main effect phantom deck is a good method but probably not the strongest version of the haunted deck and here's why. I honestly got this product because I watch the WPR and they rated this product very highly which is why I got it. The main issue I have with it is, the lighting situation and the gimmick iteslf. I'm not going to tell you what the gimmick it is but it's not loops and it can be seen in very bright lighting situations. Unlike the other reviewers who said they didn't like it, the method works, the way that you get into it is clever but its not the holy grail of the haunted deck. This version is you end clean and you don't have any loops on you. It's also angle sensitive if you have spectators in a certain position. I just finished the dvd 3 times now and its voiced over because Vernet or the man who speaks does not speak English. I give it 3 out of 5 because the method works just not the way you would expect. If you buy it bear in mind it will take up 1 full pocket space. This is my honest review please take it into consideration before buying, hope it helps guys

what a cheaky Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 31st, 2013
in my opinion this is, so far, the most cheating trick i have ever purchased. they blatantly lie when claiming the performer is not hooked and the gimmick let the performer freedom to move, but the worse and greatest lie is the claim that you can perform the effect with no ligth restrictions. Not to mention the price, which is absolutely out of fairness considering what you get. My advise is not to buy this by any means

Awful!!! Exactly how you do it in all the magic books. So obvious you may as well wear a white sheet and claim you're a ghost. This should be in the kids section and cost $5. Please don't waste your money on this junk.
