at the photo and you'll see why we call this the Monster Guillotine.
At over 9 feet tall, it's more than intimidating. This chopper provides
the illusion that the victim's head is actually cut off. The audience
actually sees the head fall off into the basket. To appreciate the
full effect, have a look at our demonstration video. Although this
type of guillotine is commonly called a Will Rock Guillotine, our
method is different, foolproof and safe for the person whose head
is at risk. The guillotine features an elaborate crank-up system
to raise the blade and a special scissor system to release it when
it reaches the top. Mechanically, the guillotine is made to withstand
heavy usage. Although solidly constructed, it breaks down for packing.
We can also make this type of guillotine in a version which does
not drop the head, but allows the use of a spectator as in a traditional
of the Monster Guillotine can be seen on our See-Thru Guillotine
Video demonstration tape.
