The 1914 proudly presents DISTORTED VISIONS an instructional DVD by JACK CURTIS - author of the critically acclaimed underground mentalism book DISTORTED THOUGHTS. On this DVD, Jack, joined by professional mentalist LOOCH, teaches six incredibly strong, instantly resetting, real-world, close-up mentalism effects; designed and structured for high impact results.

The mentalist's answer to the two card transposition using business cards and a pen. A baffling demonstration of confusion and mild amnesia.

A philosophical exploration of free will and determinism using flowers and playing cards.

EXTRA SUBLIMINAL PERSUASION (Video demo embedded above)
After learning about the psychic experiments of Dr. Rhine, your participant is left surprised to find that stuck to the back of all five ESP cards are stickers which correctly predict the outcome of their actions.

A multi layered demonstration of apparent subliminal influence using a freely named number.

Using nothing more than a stack of business cards and a pen, you are not only able to correctly identify the name of the family member your participant is thinking of, but also present an incredible demonstration of "Synchronicity".

The mentalist uses two coins to challenge a spectator to a battle of the minds. After an apparently disappointing ending, the mentalist bounces back with a surprise jaw-dropping finalé.

A thought-provoking essay about close-up approach techniques, an essay on the topic of predictions, a very funny blooper reel and a short video discussion that will dramatically change the way you think about playing cards.

Excellent, easy-to-do mentalism Report this review

I'm not a huge fan of mentalism that takes forever to set the stage for, or keeps you thinking so hard about the method you can't concentrate on the patter. In "Distorted Visions" we are given several effects that take only seconds to "create the mood" for, and are simple enough to allow you to concentrate more on performance than anything else.

All the effects aren't gems, but that can be said about most multi-effect DVDs. "Blank 2.0" and "Silver Lining" are two beauties. The latter is especially nice, as it has a kicker ending that the audience isn't prepared for in such a low-key effect (though they do suggest you wear a jacket for the trick, it's not necessary and easy to work around). Both effects will require you to purchase a couple of magic props to work, though most magicians will probably have them in their magic drawer already.

There are two business card effects (or effects that use the back of a business card, I should say) and one using a few ESP cards you can purchase or make. These are good effects but not as strong as the others.

For the most part, I'm really satisfied with this DVD. I bought it not really knowing what to expect, and instead I find six fun little effects that are worth the time to watch.

I enjoyed each and every effect on this mentalism DVD. I hope to incorporate most, if not all, of them into future performances. Good work Jack Curtis and Looch.

His performance is poor.
Effect is no thing new,not even interested.
I don't think this guy deserve to publish DVD.
These days every newbies want to publish and make a name for himself. Total waste of money,don't buy this. If you want to learn mentalism,go buy Bob cassidy or Richard Osterlind,much worth the money.
