Magician Kevin James ("America's Got Talent") performs a 'sawed-in-half' act at the Freak Show during Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida's "Halloween Horror Nights" 2007, Jack's Carnival of Carnage.
ETA: I will *not* remove the description here. Everyone should know that "magic" is merely illusion; that human beings cannot be cut in half and survive. I did not ruin the entertaining aspect of this act, and frankly, if I was able to figure out on my own how the trick was done--and if Criss Angel can explain it as well--there's no harm in having it in the description of the video. If you don't like it, don't read it, but I am certainly not putting magicians out of a job by pointing out a not very difficult to figure out sleight of hand. :) ~*~ Since there's a ton of discussion about this, let me clear up the trick for you. The top half of the man is actually an amputee. Amputating someone at the waist/hips is a last-resort medical procedure, and is only done in severe cases of genetic disorders and terrible accidents. The initial "doctor" is this amputee on top of another man whose upper body is inside the table. The man in the table walks offstage, leaving the amputee onstage. The "legs" brought out by the nurse are fake. Then both amputee and fake legs are rolled offstage. The doctor that comes out is a completely different man who is just twisted to look like two seperate entities. I hope this clears up some confusion.
