A VVitch gives birth to a daughter, only to possess her and perpetuate an endless cycle of resurrection. Guide your audience into an unsettling story of ancestral lineage, which spans centuries. When you are done, the only unanswered question will be: “Is she still walking the earth?”
Four photos of VVitches are displayed. A participant looks through a Hag Stone at the photos and selects one. As the story unfolds the photo selected proves to be a haunted artifact, one eternally connected to the stone. The tale concludes with a dark revelation that will not be soon forgotten, as it undeniably confirms the existence of real magic.
This completely self-working method makes use of handmade replicas from a forgotten era. The photos are used to enhance this supernatural narration, for your audience to visually follow along towards the reveal.
One hand aged custom designed VVitch box (un-gimmicked). Internal dimensions 3”x6”x8” perfect for carrying your show around in. Fits three small book tests Witches Almanac size, Tarot cards, Pendulums, Seven Sins, etc.

What are people saying about the VVitch?
I love it all: props (esp the pictures), effect and method. This is a complete and well thought out piece of dark delight.
The Witch Hunter
"Gotta say, I wasn’t quite prepared for how good it is! Really well thought out, and the props are beyond compare. Super happy with this. Looks very practical, simple in execution, and designed for explosive effect. And I love the Heaven & Hell pendulum. Thanks again for a really superb product! This is a terrific piece of dark theater you’ve created here!!"
"I absolutely love the props, backstory, routine, and method. Really gonna enjoy performing this dark masterpiece and having it in my collection."
"This is as good as it gets! I received The VVitch and have had time to work with the prop and the story. Having a large collection of dark magic and being a dealer with Murphy’s Magic I see a lot. This is in the top 1% of GREAT PROPS! This story, apparatus and included items of mystery are unparalleled in logic, material construction, and grand storytelling. Mr. Darkness is to be commended for offering the community exquisite design, manufacturing and versatility in craftsmanship and story. This is also an incredible value. Easily worth $450 or more if sold via the standard channels. I recently had the opportunity to have a dinner with Mr. Darkness when he was visiting my town. I’ve been a customer of his earlier releases and I found him personally enchanting and above reproach as one of the leaders in the field of bizarre magic production and story.”

“VVitch is a terrific product. The props are very well made and look thoroughly authentic. The eerie VVitch photos on very heavy stock are quite suitably haunting without looking too bizarre. The box is very nicely made and could pass for something very old. I love the extended story idea, and the script added touch of the letters is a nice subtle way of “selling" or finalizing the spectator’s choice. All in all, well worth the money and a great routine to add to any séance or bizarre story-telling show.”
Jim Kleefeld - of Salem and Cinema Verite
"This prop is fantastic in every way! The look, feel, smell, attention to detail... all top notch and done with pride. And the effect is right up my dark alley, and the workings are perfectly simple so no need to be sidetracked by method when concentrating on telling a good story. I am more than satisfied with this purchase."
"You could really feel an air of disquiet in the room as I opened the box and carefully removed the candle and its holder, then the bag, then laid the four photographs out in sequence. A big, burly man with a pint in his hand who had been standing close watching actually stepped back saying, "I'm not doing this one!" This was before I'd even said a word about the effect. There's something about these props and those photographs that touches nerves in people and leaves them feeling like someone's walked over their grave.
If you press ahead and release the remainder of the run of 50, I'd urge you not to change a thing. They are dark and foreboding without looking like something out of a horror movie. They touch deep fears and uncertainties rather than surface scares. You've gauged them exactly right in my opinion.
…Everyone was suitably discomfited. This wasn't a moment for applause, it was a moment of uncomfortable realization."
"This weekend I was able to share The VVitch with some friends. It does so much more than I imagined. I don't know if it's the story, the pictures, handling of the hag stone, or what but this leaves a real emotional impact on the helper. It is very creepy and she will seem a little uneasy for the remainder of the evening."
