"I thought I knew what was going on... then that second phase, phenomenal!"
- Tom Elderfield

"Simple, strong, powerful!"
- Fraser Parker

Nikolas Mavresis' Cinemental is a blockbuster two-phase mentalism routine that will leave your spectators begging for a sequel.

The first phase gives you the power to reveal any movie your spectator has selected under test conditions. They select a movie, they shuffle it back in, and without ever needing to look at the cards, you know exactly the movie they are thinking of. No marks, no peeks, you can even perform this blindfolded.

But it gets even better! In the second phase, you make an open prediction and the spectator deals cards face up, freely stopping at any point they want. Without any switching of any kind, the card they've stopped at ALWAYS matches your prediction. No multiple outs, and there are is only one prediction ever in play. Once you know the secret, you'll smile to yourself at how clever the method truly is.

"I was involved in the visual design of the Cinemental deck, but had nothing to do with the actual effect. The way the Cinemental deck works is a great combination of different methods that allows a killer one -two punch that will fry spectators."
- Phil Smith

"The first time I saw this I was fooled pretty badly. As a magician it's really easy to think there is more going on. The genius of this method is its simplicity. It puts you so far ahead that it feels almost self-working and lets you really focus on performance and presentation. A modern day classic."
- Jason Knowles

"Cinemental is a brilliant two-punch Mentalism piece that fooled the #%@#$ out of me. I simply had no clue as to the method, and when you see the method you will laugh out loud and hit yourself. It's genius!"
- John Carey

Loving this. Gorgeous Deck & 2 methods that cancel each other out. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 13th, 2020
Just got this today. First off, this is a gorgeous deck designed by Phil Smith. So many "movie cards" are either just the poster or cheap cardboard -- this deck is beautifully designed to evoke key conceptual elements of the film. Can't say enough about the design. The methods employed won't necessarily be new to many magicians but the way in particular one of the methods is executive is truly inspired and almost hiding in plain sight. I think this will be a lot of fun perform, something different from a standard deck, and offers a universally loved theme. While it will take some "practice," there is nothing difficult about the routine and no sleights are involved. Thanks to Nikolas and Phil!

Just finished watching the explanation. I have no words! The method (especially for the 2nd phase) is ingenious. I will certainly add this to my parlour set.

A great effect - just one ask Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 23rd, 2020
For my style of work. This is one of these effects I see as as a perfect interstitial beat between my main routines.

Right when my audience is thinking there's no way he can top the last card trick. I can turn to Cinemental and stun them again in a very unexpected and magical way.

My only ask is the publisher release auxiliary gaffs.

I think Cinemental is one of the best close up mentalism effects that have been created. It is super practical, it does not require sleight of hand and the method is super clever. I definately recommend it!!!!!!

Not for strolling Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 14th, 2020


The reason I give it a two and it should have been a one is because of false advertising.

Because of the reset involved it is not good for strolling. I don't know about how the folks that wrote the ad stroll but I go from table to table crowd to crowd and I don't have time to reset this thing. It's not that it takes long but it does take about 30 seconds but you'd look like a fool resetting it between tables.

So two stars it is. Sorry. Next time be more open.
