Jim Critchlow is well known as the creator of the best-selling effect White Star. Now joined by Tony McMylor he has created "The Fallen"
The Fallen is an absolutely incredible piece of theatre which can be presented in almost any performing situation.
Jim Critchlow and Tony McMylor have taken many months to develop probably one of the magic world’s most amazing multi-revelation effects, which is ideal for bizarrists, mentalists, storytellers, psychics and the working magician.
Respectfully taking the First World War as its subject and uses authentic looking props. This poignant, thought provoking piece of theatre is easy to learn and suitable for close-up, parlour or stage performances.
Do not expect whoops and hollers at the finale of the effect - stunned silence is what you will get. Little memory work needed and a very powerful tool indeed.
Using method one, you will be able to pluck eight, yes eight pieces of information apparently from thin air - name, rank, service number, regiment, the date when either missing in action or killed in action, date of birth and nationality.
Method two is even better, you can divine nine pieces of information. Truly an incredible effect.

'I've always been a fan of Jim Critchlow. I first met him many years ago, late at night in the Ruskin Pub at the Blackpool Magic Convention. Ben Williams excitedly introduced him to me, and within 5 minutes he had totally fried my brain! Unlike so much mentalism ( I get shown a huge amount by creators wanting to release material) Jim's focus was on how the effect made the spectator FEEL. I was expecting the usual 'mind reading' or 'predictions', but instead I was hit by the emotional power of the material he was presenting to me. I loved it and released Jim's first effect - 'Whitestar' to worldwide acclaim. The Fallen captures this power once again, and I think it's not only a great performance effect, but an important lesson in what mentalism can be, if you strive to add meaning into your work' - Dominic Reyes
