Mentalism...one step beyond!
Join Richard Osterlind as he takes mentalism one step further! Using props like crystal balls, pendulums, candles, spirit slates, and more, Richard has created a number of new effects that go just a little further! Besides being impossible looking, they are all...well...eerie!
Almost everything in "Eerie" utilizes props you probably already own or ones you can easily make yourself. Many are impromptu and you can do them anywhere. The effects run the gamut from psychokinesis to thought projection, mind reading, spirit writing, and even time travel! There isn't a single routine that requires great skill or is beyond your ability to perform it. And, each one is designed to leave your audience breathless!
Any of these effects could have been sold separately for the entire price of this set! You get over 15 great routines as well as a lesson in advanced mentalism and presentation. As always, Richard not only shows you how to make your performance believable, but gives many alternate ways to present these effects and hints for great stagecraft!
You will marvel at how Richard can turn a well-known principle around on its ear to create incredible mentalism. You will also see how he can take a theme and build on it to make a totally professional presentation. With the material on this 2-DVD set, you could build a number of separate acts!
If you are ready to have people step back when you walk by for fear of your powers - you are ready for "Eerie"!

Psychokinesis Act: A complete act featuring spoons, coins, keys, watches, and even a padlock. Everything moves, bends or breaks! This is 15-minute act that takes psychokinesis to new heights!

Blindfold Balloon Murder: If you wondered what the large knife on the DVD cover was for, this is the reason! It is the famous Balloon Murder routine Richard devised for use with his Stainless Steel Blindfold over 25 years ago!
Phantom Knife and Hank: For the first time, see how incredible the Phantom Hank and Knife routine looks! With the new Swiss Army knife, the ending looks totally impossible!

Classic Epic Routine: If you thought Richard's routine on Live...Without a Net! was good, wait until you see this! Never before has this classic prop been so well used. A spectator even watches you write the last prediction! Richard also divulges his pet way to use his classic Change of Mind!
Georgia Magnet / Body Suspension: For the first time, see these routines actually demonstrated! Richard becomes an immovable object resisting even three strong men!
