Cannibal Cards by Mike Hankins

Posted by Jonathan Bayme on 24 September 2010

A classic plot in magic is the Cannibal Cards. Originally developed by Lin Searles in the 1950's, the effect has been a favorite among many of magic's most respected creators. Tonight, we unveil a new spin on it by Mike Hankins.

Eugene Burger called it "wonderfully surprising with a perfect final line." Deceptive, fun, and contemporary, this rendition of Cannibal Cards is streamlined and diabolical in presentation.

Four cards are violently devoured by the deck without mercy. Capped off a twist, surprise ending that will leave you speechless.
