Includes all three books! Homicide- the victims Sinister-The killers- Manhattanville- The Pawnshop log
Let me tell you a little story. Back in the days before there were computers and PDA's, detectives and police carried around a little book with them. The book was small enough to keep in their shirt pocket. The cops would affectionately refer to it as "the Murder Book."
Actually, it was a book of unsolved murders, more commonly known as "cold cases". Every couple of years, the big city departments would have their cold cases printed up and distributed to their officers. If they came across a lead, they could reference the "Murder Book" which contained the victim's name, address and a brief note about the murder. The books were widely used by Detectives in the 30's, 40's and 50's.
We've re-created the murder book for you. Why? Because our murder book is umm...special. The spec can turn to ANY page, choose an unfortunate victim's name, street, or the area where the murder took place, and you can reveal how they met their demise, if they were male or female, how old they were, why they were killed, and the name of the killer! All this opens up incredible possibilities.
You do not ask for a page number and you do not look at the book. In fact you could have your back turned to the spec, but that would be rude. Homicide is our most ambitious product to date.
You love the Outlaw wallet, the Sanctum card is cool and Kioku baffles everyone. We only put out effects that we use, and Homicide is one of the best.
The book is 3 1/2 x 4 inches. It is "aged" to look like it was from the 1950's. We provide all the background on how you could have come across this little book, routines and method of course. By the way, we created all the "victims" in the book.
We also have an Outlaw product forum for all of out effects. The Homicide forum has 14 sub-forums and over 200 posts!
The instructions include presentation and performance ideas.
With Homicide, you DO NOT need to know the page number and you DO NOT peek the book!
Homicide allows you to "describe" in detail, a freely chosen victim's murder scene and the exact details of the murder itself, including the name of the killer!
It's perfect for one on one or, have two people choose from the book. It is great for a parlour presentation.
Create a truly chilling experience for your audience as you "channel" the images of their chosen victim as they are confronted by their killer.
"I Got the Homicide and it is fantastic!
Some of the names are close to our family name and can be very convincing when used in a story that has some root in a real life event. Very strong on it own or as a centerpiece of a larger routine.
It is based in New York, the city of a million stories. You could match some of the cases to your favorite tale of the good old days.
The complete encoding of the entries, lets you reveal some excruciating details about hundreds of murder cases with minimal memorization.
I like this Homicide Book and can't wait to see Manhattanville.
I am not a paid employee of Outlaw Effects, but I would be if they asked."
|"My Homicide arrived last night. I can report the following:|
I sat around with the prop on and off for about three hours trying to "figure it out" -- looking for patterns, code, anything an audience member (or, even worse, an intelligent friend) might look for.
I'm intimately familiar with MOAB, Insight, and two editions of Flashback. I couldn't find Homicide's gaff. I had to read the manuscript to "get it"."
|"Just came in today. It is wicked. |
And hat's off to the Outlaw gang for going above and beyond the call of duty in the service department. One could spend hundreds of hours in thinking up new ways to use this jewel. Thanks again."
|"I really like this book. In fact I have been playing with it a bit and have been adding to it. |
We have a month of public shows planned in Atlanta and I plan on incorporating this into my promotional work.
The real stuff I do is just not well suited to playing about with interviewers and reporters.
This however fits perfectly with the macabre tone of the October festivities I think.
Like Tony, I have had a few friends look at the book and think it is real. In fact one of my business partners Timmy O'Brien, and my wife Christine, both just assumed it was real and looked through it and never suspected it was a prop.
They thought it was more strange stuff someone sent me or that I bought from an estate.
Really good work.
Thanks Rick for doing things right."
