Two of Cardone's Illusions were built by the same guy who built magic props for Mr. Neff.
One of the Illusions was a feature and one of Neff's favorites .." Frame of Life and Death"
It is an illusion that once it is seen will never be forgotten.   Click on the link to see the article .....

Two reviews for the Spook Show !

Look at this show description from the" Magic Cafe"

Went to the Spook Show last night! Thought I would post a mini review for those who were unable to attend. First and foremost, I would like to say that anyone who resurrects the classic spook show is aces in my book. I missed seeing all the greats, Neff, Ray-Mond, Morris and the like. After reading about these live midnight fright shows, performed across the country to screaming crowds, I knew I was born just about 30 years too late! **(Ghostmasters by Mark Walker)

So when I saw on The Café that some guy named Cardone was doing a spook show, how could I possibly resist! Cardone and crew really pulled it off! The venue was small and intimate (around 40 seats) and the show started out with trailers for Spook shows from the 40's and 50's projected on a big screen. The curtains opened to reveal, among other things, the best looking Guillotine I've ever seen. Later in the show, he loaded himself in the thing for a demonstration while singing an Elvis tune (pretty good voice by the way). My favorite had to be the Time Machine of Death. A classic peppers ghost, where Cardone's son, Wolfgang, was transformed into an old man and ultimately a talking skull right before our eyes! Also excellent was "Escape From The Whirling Blade of Doom". A fantastic escape effect with a grisly finale, I don't want to give away too much! Rock and roll seance was a great bit with a Lossander floating table and a channeled appearance by "The King" himself.

It was obvious a lot of work went into this show. Excellent patter, and a logical progression from effect to effect. The finale was, as it should be, a black out with luminous spectors and beasties! What a blast, the crowd loved it! If you ever get a chance to see this show, I highly recommend it.

Thanks Cardone ..... Steven Gibson

The Spook Show "House of Ghostly Haunts" gets a rock star review...

I had never been to a spook show before, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I entered the theater to see Cardone's performance. As soon as I stepped through the doorway, I felt a chilling yet thrilling energy come over me. I proceeded forward, with butterflies in my stomach, and as I made my way to my seat, I had a chance to view a miraculous yet deeply disturbing collection of strange objects and horrifying specimens - it was my first time ever seeing a real human skull and dirt from Dracula's Castle.
As much as I thought I was ready for the rest of the action, nothing could prepare me for the excitement and terror I would experience during Cardone's feature presentation. The lights went down, the curtain opened, and the show began. I can't tell you exactly what I saw - you'll have to see for yourself - but I've thought about the events that night every day since. Something changed inside me as I sat in that theater. I saw levitating objects. I saw spectres, phantasms, and banshees. I experienced shocks the likes of which I've never felt before. I admit - I'm hooked on the horror which Cardone brings into this world. Something about all the danger and death ended up affirming my life. I was inspired and delighted and deeply entertained. 10 out of 10. But consider yourself warned: Cardone is intensely good."
