An effect such as the Zombie can be done badly. That seems to be what the DVD wants to help you avoid. However, while the information contained is good, it is not the best. Jeff McBride goes through a great technical class, but does not provide a routine. Not that you should want to copy a routine, but it would be good to see how he puts the techniques into play. I find Al Schneider dull. His performances and acting come off with a flat affect. But he does provide a routine and pretty good instruction. Tommy Wonders section is the shortest with just some tips and no routine. I have several WGM DVD's and this one is not on par. Treat this DVD as more of a supplement to your Zombie training and that will give you the proper context. Try and get something with routines so you can see how the performers integrate their tips and instructions.

I have been wanting to include a Zombie Ball routine in my act but realize this is one trick that is difficult to do well. This DVD is the solution to that problem. Just the information about gimmick modification is worth the price of the entire DVD. I wasn't looking for a routine to copy, I just wanted explanations of the basic moves, ins and outs, and silk and gimmick management. I got all of that, and more, just from the Jeff McBride section. I am very pleased with this purchase.

It helps you to get started on zombie ball and it gives helpful advice to the novice. The modifications suggested and ideas about zombie foulard choice were helpful as well!

I'm a big fan of Zombies in spite of their over-exposure and poor presentation. As Tommy Wonder says of the trick, "We shouldn't blame the piano for the music played on it." The zombie I got from Penguin is perfect as is, but I modified it by curving the wire and reworking the cork so it stays fixed in place.
I bought a second one recently as back up, but am considering a mod which hinges the stick at the top of the ball (on the inside). It's Wonder's idea, and I made one last month with an Xmas ornament. It really makes the ball float more realistically.
Anyway, thumbs up on this one as a basic package. The chrome ball is beautiful!

After receiving the Zombie Ball I didn't want to try it at all without getting some input. I was wanting to change the set up. This shows the right way to set it up and why they do it that way.This shows different routines that the pros use that allow you to start being creative on your own. It is a great routine when done right with practice. Like making it sail and flow---not like when you learned to drive with a stick. Great explanations.

I have had The Zombie Ball for many years and when done properly it is still amazing to watch. This DVD is done very well and explained so that even I can make it look good.I even fool myself. I love close up,and this is a definate keeper.

Another great compilation DVD by L&L. This time on the Zombie Ball. The zombie ball is a classic levitation. Performed poorly, you'll look silly and the audience will catch on. Performed well and it can be poetry in motion. This DVD features 3 masters of the zombie. Al Schneider wrote the book on the zombie - literally. He covers the basics from modifying the gimmick to care of the silk. Jeff McBride takes a deep dive into the various moves that you can do to build a routine. Jeff is a wonderful teacher. Lastly, the incomparable Tommy Wonder delves into his mind to unlock the secrets that make the zombie look like modern wizardry. Tommy does not provide a routine but his lecture is worth the price and then some.

I have found this DVD to be very helpful in learning about the techniques required for performing a smooth Zombie routine. My only wish is that some of the individual moves were shown in slow motion. But that's a minor complaint. Overall, I would recommend this DVD to anyone interested in Zombie.
