Moore Slicer (aka Slicing a Lady in Half)
Designer: Phil Moore
Effect: Moore’s original “Slicing a Lady in Half” illusion is the winner of the IBM’s award for Best Original Effect according to its own advertisement for the effect. The effect starts as a traditional sawing. The assistant lies on a table and is covered with two sections – one for the lower portion of the body and one for the upper. The magician saws through the assistant with a large saw. The covers are removed and the saw is then drawn back and forth with the blade clearly penetrating the assistant’s body. A girl from the audience may be used for this effect.
