"Jeki Yoo is one the most versatile magicians I have ever met! His techniques are so polished and clean" - Shin Lim

"What magic do you show when laypeople ask a quick card trick to you? "Fright" is my answer. You should learn it A.S.A.P." - Fujii Akira

"Jeki has frightened me with how clever Fright is. Cards animate with no gimmick. The effect ends clean with nothing to trace back. This is one of my favorite go to card effects now!" - Will Tsai

South Korea’s Jeki Yoo has blended innovative sleight of hand with classic plots to amaze audiences around the world. Now he’s created a wonderful walk around mystery that is totally impromptu. This Haunted Deck routine is super visual and gets great reactions. This is Fright by
Jeki Yoo.

Here’s what happens:
A deck of cards can be shuffled by the audience. A card is selected, and lost back in the deck. The deck is then balanced on the back of the card box and held with one hand by the magician. Slowly, and eerily, the back cuts itself with the bottom half of the deck pushing itself out from underneath the top packet. The card that pushes itself out the furthest is in fact the selected
card.

This take on Haunted Deck is astonishing because not only is everything examinable, it appears like your fingers never move. You’re in total control of when the deck cuts itself. This is the kind of Haunted Deck you are going to want to do. Make your deck Fright with this awesome effect from Jeki Yoo.

What?!! A Haunted Deck with NO GIMMICK?!! 4.5 Stars! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 21st, 2020
Jeki, I’m impressed. When I saw this trick, I thought it was just another haunted deck. But then the trailer said... NO GIMMICK!!!

I had to see this for myself.

Guys, it’s really true. I wondered if this would be one of those tricks where the trailer basically lies to you. Nope. It’s really true. No gimmick. No clean up. Nothing to hide. Nothing to switch. No digging through your leftover drawer for a “special something that every magician has”. No arts and crafts. No work. No sleights. No prep.

Oh yeah... it’s simple too.

You’ll be able to perform this trick right away. (No matter how easy a trick supposedly is, always practice a few times first)

Get this. I give it 4.5 stars... I reserve 5 stars for extremely mind blowing tricks... for a haunted deck (WITH NO GIMMICK!!!), I award you the highest score I can. 😎

By the way, I always try to be honest and straightforward in my reviews, while being respectful to the magician.

Very good, but probably won't use it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 19th, 2020
I really like this. You can see the entire trick in the preview, and it's exactly as clean and magical looking as the preview.

A few points:

Difficulty: This is pretty difficult. Uses one sleight (or to be more exact, half of a sleight) that I think most people would consider an 'advanced' card sleight.

Teaching: This is a no-frills tutorial. Jeki Yoo does explain everything, but it's straightforward and quick. To give some context, the entire tutorial video is under 7 minutes, including 2 live performances. He does run through the sleight used in this trick, but if you're not already familiar with it, some other source would probably be a better place to learn it.

Practicality: Here's a tricky one. Without (hopefully) giving too much away, this won't work as easily with all card boxes. You can see him holding the card box in the demo, which makes the effect even cleaner since you're not touching the deck, but not all card boxes are as effective. To his credit, Jeki Yoo does mention this issue in the video and says to be aware of it. But as long as you've got the right cards, this is fully impromptu.

Angles: This is an easy one. Practically perfect angles from any direction.

In conclusion, I really like it. I'll probably put in the work to get this down, but in practice, I probably won't get to actually perform it that often. Still very fun, magical, and in the right situation, amazing. Been wanting to add a good Haunted Deck trick into my repertoire for a while, and I think this is the closest one to make it in.

They updated the tutorial - yay! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2020
I don’t like giving negative reviews -- I've done it but I don't like it. So, I’m very glad I waited to review Fright. When I first got it, I was not happy with the tutorial. It was very short, the explanation was not clear, and after several viewings I realized this was not something I would be able to learn without someone standing next to me to show me how it's done. Today, after deciding to write my review anyway, I took another look at the tutorial and – surprise! - they've changed it. Jeki's explanation has been expertly supplemented and now it makes sense to me! This will take a bit of practice to make the get-ready look smooth, but I like the basic idea and the illusion is nice. I give it 4 stars because I still think it's a bit knacky and as such I may not use it often, but I am now willing to work on it which I wasn't before. Nice effect for the price.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 23rd, 2020
The idea is pretty good, but it would take A LOT of work to get the moves right. The demo is short and perfunctory--there should be a lot more instruction on how to make the first move and how to align the card perfectly.

Haunted deck with no gimmicks … WOW Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 19th, 2020
I’m sure if you have been into magic for a while, you may have seen or owner a few Haunted Decks but this is truly unique. This is really amazing, devious and visually astounding without using any gimmicks. Before you know it Halloween will be upon us but you don’t have to wait until then. Do it anytime, anywhere as it is impromptu. The deck it totally unprepared - nothing to make, buy extra or add to the deck. The spectator can shuffle and really pick whatever card they want - no forces. When you find out how it is done you will be floored, I have never seen anything like this ever before.

There is a little work to be practiced along with a minor sleigh that you will probably already know and use. There is nothing that difficult that you cannot master quickly. Angles are excellent if done properly. You can do this anytime in your routine whether you use a table or in a strolling environment. A great buy, don’t hesitate, you won't regret it.

Looks cool! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 19th, 2020
I agree with the other reviewers.
This will take a bit of practice, but none of the moves are hard.
This is completely impromptu, and can be done with a borrowed, shuffled, incomplete deck.
The deck does need to have an ungimmicked case, as the case is used to support the "haunted" deck.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 19th, 2020
I’ve always really loved the Haunted Deck, but I never want to carry a gimmicked deck. This completely solves that issue and to a layperson, this is just as mysterious.

The reveal can’t be visual (as in face up slowly sliding out of the deck), but in my opinion that’s not the mysterious part.

Easy handling and no gimmicks necessary that can be done with probably any deck of cards and card case. Minor sleight of hand knowledge is used.

Very very cute Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 4th, 2020
I love the haunted deck plot - it’s visual and in the right circumstances can be a show stopping piece of magic.

One of the issues for me has been the challenge of any gaffs or fiddly set up.

My personal favourite set up is Eugene Burgers where the deck can be left with the spectator however fright could come in as a close second.

There is no gaff just some really interesting and clever handling. The video explains the handling clearly and is well produced. There is a ‘knack’ to it which may take a little practice to make look totally smooth and you may need to think about the ‘quality’ of the deck (it may not work so well with borrowed, dog earned cards.

But this method is very cool and worth learning.

It’s organic, flows well and does create a super reaction.
