Ok=P normally I don't do reviews but i thought lets write one. First, the effect is something you have to like. The magician puts a thread in his mouth, swallows it for half its length(so still a bit of thread hangs from his mouth), then the performer starts gagging, and sniffing, reaches up for his eye, and pulls out the thread. The thread goes further in the mouth, and comes all the way out through the eye. If you like what you see(read), and want a disturbing picture for the audience to remember definitely get it. I think both methods are awesome, although i prefer the geek method more. I am still working on it, but while practicing I got the image I want it to have it. What you see is what you get, no funny things to hide, its just like the video, the thread goes in the mouth, and comes out from the eye. I think no one will ever know how the effect is accomplished(especially if you do the geek method), if you give it the practice it deserves. You need to get some things for both methods, but you can get those in a shop near you(I live in the Netherlands, so if any dutch people want to know where i got my stuff, just send me a message). The geek method doesn't require much, but you might need to get over some psychological issues(the chance is you find this idea a really bad idea), once you get the hang of it, you can prepare yourself anytime anywhere, by just going to the toilet or something. and wayne houchin says he even did it 4 hours before performing it, so you could prepare yourself, do your normal street magic walk around, and perform this whenever you want. The other method uses a gimmick, and you can make very much of these all at once, it doesn't take long to create, and works great if you're not in for the geek method. The plus thing about this method is you can make the gimmick, keep it in your pocket forever, and pull it out when you need it. Also, before I forget, bote methods dont require expensive stuff, I believe I found everything for 10 to 15 dollar(but I already saw online, that the amount you get in America for that price is much more). Wayne teaches you everything you need to know. He goes into detail about what thread to use, what to use for safety, the acting involved and he gives you a nice little extra called the gypsy thread miracle. It's cool to see the classic trick with wayne's extra add. Although it's such an old trick, it looks so clean, and seeing wayne perform it, actually got me performing it right away, and the person who saw it was stunned. So yeah, it's nice he reminds you of the power of those classic effects. Some nice things to know about the geek method is that it is so clean, for me that is the real thing. You can really stop half way through and show the thread hanging from your eye. Some subtleties he teaches you make sure the method never gets spotted. And in the gimmicked method, the gimmick is very easy to handle, and to hide. Your hands look clean, the image is almost exactly the same, the only difference is, you can't show the thread hanging from your eye. But for the persons who don't want to do the geek method, yeah the gimmicked method is definitely worth the price(I don't know what the price is going to be at theory 11, but waynes price was good, so I think theory 11's price is still worth it). Also, the quality of the video is great. I bought the dvd and download. The quality is great, and some nice extras are involved(gypsy thread, an interview, prop management for thread). I only saw the download, so maybe the dvd has even more extras. So to close this review. This will be one of the tricks(in my opinion)that let you say to other magician: dont buy it. It's actually something you only want to know for yourself. I think it's going to be my favorite of this year(since I do razorblade swallowing, and saw, this is a nice add to geek magic with thread). I would rate this really a 10/10. And I want to thank Wayne for bringing this effect on the market, I have been waiting for this since the time I saw his youtube vid of thread(and that's a long time =P). sorry if people don't like the review, it's my first review. Any questions, just ask.
