And the chain is still on so it's no less dangerous than juggling the chainsaw with the motor really on and the chain not running!

chainsaw with or without the motor, no difference really, apart from the fact that it's easier. We all do things that the audience will percieve as dangerous, but most of the time they are actually not. Juggling fire, oooh that's so dangerous. not. jugggling knives, ooooh it must really dangerous. not. a chainsaw is just heavy, and that is the most difficult thing about it, so 10 points to the kid that thought to remove the engine.
May I suggest putting a battery powered motor in that has enough power to just turn the chain around for extra effect.
You should remove the teeth from the chain. People never notice that and it will do a lot less damge to you if you do happen to make a mistake.

the problem with a battery powered chainsaw, though a little lighter, is that it sounds like a dust buster, or an electric razor. To get the full effect of the noise and the motion of pulling the chord that starts the engine...a gas powered chainsaw is your best bet...in my opionion. Batter powered chainsaws are better for balancing and for setting on fire...
