"Such a brave little piggling," he rasps, "to risk life and limb against the great Hogdini." He waves his hands and you feel your clothes begin to knot and twist and wrap around your body.

The huge caped figure leans back and laughs a low rumbling nauseous assault. Clouds darken an4 race across the sky. The background music swells to a crescendo.
