Reviews

I love collecting tarot decks for radically different and interpretative images, and this deck is much more than just another RWS clone - not only is it the most colorful deck I've ever seen, but it's the most innovative I've come across in a long time. I consider myself a film buff having completed many Film Studies courses in college during my English degree, but Lorelei's knowledge of this period in movie history is so unbelievably extensive that I must admit I could not at first trace the origins to many of the movies on some of the cards. A wide range of films from the Golden Age is represented in this glorious 82-card deck, from the obscure right up to the very popular films of the time. (The LWB is not available in the deck currently but is available from Lorelei's website, and it's worth reading. Lorelei is happy to make the LWB available to anyone, purchaser or not.)

One of the most interesting and intriguing aspects of this deck is the addition of four Veto cards, one per Minor Arcana suit. Each features an usher holding a finger to his lips in a "shush" gesture. "These cards don’t carry meanings or advice," Lorelei says. "They are meant to convey that this is a no go zone. Possibly because the question encroaches on the free will of another (i.e., how do I make her love me?). Or that things are still in flux and there is no answer to the question being asked. Or possibly that knowledge of the answer would do more harm than good."

I have to say, as a professional reader, in both private and online practice, I really love this concept. I've read for several thousand people worldwide now and of course a majority of my readings contain questions where I feel the client is in danger of encroaching on the free will of another. I've always had a policy of "No Psychic Spy" questions, meaning if I feel a question is infringing on another's free will or privacy, I will not answer it, so it's refreshing to finally find a deck that incorporates this concept. I also like that these cards can come up if spirit guides or other energies are trying to block the client from asking a question at a certain time for their own good. This is the ONLY deck I’ve seen tackle the concept of privacy and free will and it makes it very unique.

Being such an unusual and creative deck many of the standard RWS names are changed here. The High Priestess becomes The Psychic, The Empress becomes The Matriarch, Aces become Births, Queens become Glory. The magic of Hollywood glows throughout as King Kong falls from The Tower, Anne Bancroft in The Graduate becomes The Devil, The Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz finally gets a heart (though one with swords pierced through it) on The Three of Cups, and who can resist Gene Kelly from Singin’ in the Rain on the Eight of Wands? Alfred Hitchcock loved making cameo appearances in his movies and, along with Lorelei’s cats, who also cameo on the cards, The Master of Suspense features here as the Power of Swords (with the Bates house from Psycho in the background).

There’s so many amazing cards but my personal favorites include Transformation (Death), which features the shadowy vampire from Nosferatu; The Ten of Swords which shows ‘Mother’ attacking Marion Crane through the shower curtain from Hitchcock’s Psycho; and The Ten of Cups featuring Jimmy Stewart and gang from It’s A Wonderful Life.

I don't want to spoil all the changes and innovations as one of the unique pleasures of any deck - for me at least - is the less I know before I get it, the more fun I can have discovering it during that first all-import flick-through then even more so as I begin reading with it, and letting the deck slowly reveal its mysteries and magic to me as I begin to discover and explore it.

Speaking of readings with this deck, I've used it several times now and I find it creates very positive and powerful reads. The images are so strong, the colors so vibrant, that you can feel the energies positively pulsating through it as you spread the cards. The aforementioned Veto cards have been just wonderful for me to help me reinforce to the client when they are entering "No Go" areas - as I can show them a physical proof of this, not just say "I don't think we should go there.” I highly recommend you check out this deck and purchase a copy from The Game Crafter. With so many RWS clones filling up the market it is such a treat to find this wonderfully original Tarot!
