Clive Barker's Magic Horror Movie Lord of Illusions is now available in the UK on PAL VHS. There are a few gory examples of what can go wrong if you don't practice your illusions - but the reason we're mentioning it here is because Britain's Billy McComb makes a couple of appearances. Shot at The Magic Castle in LA, Billy can be seen performing some card manipulations. A must for true magic fans!
