“When Peter performs Invasion of the Body Snatchers, I always get goosebumps! No other “Packet Trick” in the entire world of magic has done that. And I’ve seen a lot of packet tricks in the world of magic. This is the perfect piece of Close-up Magic Theatre!”
– Bill Abbott
Invasion of the Bodysnatchers was the first published in Peter Samelson’s book Theatrical Close-up. Using Peter Kane’s timeless Wild Card packet card trick as a launching pad, Peter married it with a presentation based on the cult classic sci-fi film Invasion of the Bodysnatchers circa 1956 and created a veritable classic of close-up magic theatre.
Bill Abbott Magic is proud to partner with Peter to bring you the complete work on Invasion of the Bodysnatchers that includes the necessary cards, wallet, printed script and DVD instructions. As a bonus we’ve included Peter performing the effect on TV in 1973(!) on a show entitled Behind the scenes hosted by the hilarious Jonathan Winters.
