Halloween is coming closer and closer. We put out a blog post a while back, giving you all a little warning so you can start getting your Magic around and ready for the SPOOK-tastic holiday.

I personally always make sure to get in the Halloween mode with a bit of scary Movies, Costume Hunting, and other such fun stuff on top of doing my Spooky Magic.

On such experience I wanted to share with you guys. This is one of those chances where you can REALLY scare people.

A Movie is going around in Theatres called, “Paranormal Activity.” And it does it’s job in scaring people.

I saw this movie for the first time last night and was impressed with the effect it had on my friends and I. There were people walking out of that theatre afterwords, holding friends in pure fright! People screamed in the theatre, there was jumping, closed eyes, and much emotion.

Go see this movie.

Now what am I trying to accomplish with this? Easy. There are rare occasions that Magicians can really use cultural influences thanks to Movies, Art, News, and other such outside sources…to their advantage. This is one of those times. After seeing the movie, you will know what to do! You can start focusing your Magic around the ideas of the movie and start making your friends run from the room in horror. Thinking that the movie is not happening to them!

I don’t want to ruin the movie for anyone. SO GO SEE IT! With friends and perform your Magic in a seance style. Just pulling out a Ouiji Board will scare your friends before you start using IT to move the cursor.

Or start making noises bang in the other room with a remote CD player with a Burned CD of you blowing in the Microphone and making whispering noises.

Or times move across the room to you or away from you using the TARANTULA as means to do it!

So takes the chance to really scare the pants off your friends and family. Take them to go see the movie, and use your Magic skills to bring that movie to a horrifying life.

I did.

Have you seen the Movie? What did you think?

Have some awesome ideas on SCARY Magic to perform after seeing this? Or maybe just some scary Magic in general? Let us know in the Forums!
