Review: Liam Montier’s Voodoo by Big Blind Media

[vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Reviewer: Bernard Sim” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Abril%20Fatface%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Most magicians will know what the effect is when the see the name “Voodoo”. It is basically a prediction of where the pin will be placed on a voodoo doll. There are many versions out there and is this a better version? Let’s find out.

First of all, you get some Voodoo photos that resemble Polaroid photos as well as a DVD. The DVD contains introduction, performance video and an explanation video. Apart from these video, the DVD also included an instructional PDF eBook to perform other Voodoo routines as well as Jpegs of the Voodoo photos. Those that are proficient in computer can resize the photos to suit your needs.

For the routine, I think it’s not a bad routine. Liam uses names to get to the desired photo. There is a limitation on this as some names can be quite long. If you perform it to someone who uses an English name, you will be fine. However, if you use an Asian name, some of the names will not work if it’s too long. However, fret not as there are other methods found in the eBook that allows you to achieve the same results.  There are also other presentation ideas in which you can use keychain voodoo dolls to perform.

The qualities of the photos are good however, the size of the photos is not very ideal for performing and carrying around. I’d prefer the photos to be in poker size or even business cards size. But then again, it’s up to individual preference. The Jpegs on the DVD can give you the option to resize it.

While the routine is not new, I feel that this routine will work well with professionals. There are no difficult moves, the most difficult move is doing a DL on your business card and even this is optional. The routine is easy to comprehend and I think spectators will like it. At US$25, it is reasonably priced.
