The knives unfortunately don't look realistic at all ... they look like the toy store variety with the retractable blades. I can't see this fooling anyone if presented as anything more than a cheap gag.

Not dying is also a rather big tip-off. ;)

Since when is a fake stabbing a new effect?

I like that the props stay in place when "plunged". Kudos and a bravo on the engineering for that aspect.

Fake stabbing is in Discoverie of Witchcraft, of course, but not done this way.
