Review by JAY DECATOR

June 17, 2017 certified reviewer

What I liked

Good use of audience participation. The presenter was effective and entertaining. The hypnosis segment was really well done.

What I didn't like

Some of the payoffs of the segments were a little disappointing, especially the ending. Some of the segments only featured demonstration, but no explanation. At times it felt more like a general psychic demonstration than a specifically Victorian-era focus.

My overall impression

An enjoyable survey of the methods employed by Victorian-era psychics. A lot of audience participation really drives home how effective they could be. Not exactly what I expected, but a fun time nonetheless.
