The World’s Greatest Mentalist The Amazing Kreskin in New Documentary, “The Amazing Kreskin on Ultimate Fear”
NEW YORK, September, 2014
With his well-known capacities as a Mentalist, The Amazing Kreskin has, for some six decades, dramatized the unique facets of the human mind. With an abiding passion for the subject of horror films and respect for the power of suggestion they hold in their icy grip, The Amazing Kreskin makes his first foray in a whole new direction, taking on the horror genre in “The Amazing Kreskin on Ultimate Fear.”
Recorded live at Bill Diamond Studios, “The Amazing Kreskin on Ultimate Fear” is directed by Kevin Sean Michaels (“Vampira: The Movie”) and produced by Ben Parris (“Supernaturalz: Weird, Creepy & Random”). Diamond began his career working on the Muppets under the wing of Jim Henson, and his studio for 37 years has been the home of Bill Diamond’s Monster TV Network and other original shows.
Populated by wax museum figures such as Dracula, the Lodger, and the Hunchback of Notre Dame, (courtesy of Cortlandt Hull’s world-famous The Witch’s Dungeon) The Amazing Kreskin faced a live studio audience and used his power of suggestion to induce fear. In just a few minutes, some volunteers attempt to run out of the studio for their lives.
“I was dropped into a maelstrom of the study of human fears,” Alexia Anastasio (“Adventures in Plymptoons”) said. “There I was, standing next to The Amazing Kreskin who made the studio audience think I was actually invisible.”
Veteran performer Johnny Fox is one of the few people in the world that can swallow a fragile, lit neon sword. In “The Amazing Kreskin on Ultimate Fear,” Johnny brings us this stunt of astonishment and wonder.
“We are all fascinated by fear,” Producer Ben Parris said. “Fear’s range of real and perceived danger in this documentary includes plenty of childlike fun, which is essential because childhood is where we acquire our taste for the mysterious.”
“The Amazing Kreskin on Ultimate Fear” will be available on Amazon Instant Video and DVD, ready for Halloween, October, 2014.
