Living Key by Cristóbal Carnero Liñán

From the current close-up repertory of Cristóbal, this is the final routine with the Haunted Key. A demonstration of energy work or a bizarre effect of possession, you choose. The perfect Halloween effect. Use with caution: spectators will freak out.

This is not for the hobbyist, but it's an easy effect to perform if you have experience with this kind of techniques.


You give the key to a spectator who can feel how the key comes to life with his own energy. Finally the mentalist proves how the spectator and the key are now connected.


  • No extra props (only the key)
  • Anywhere, anytime
  • No stooges of any kind
  • Perfect for close-up, walkaround,...
  • You can do it surrounded
What they're saying

"Our friend Cristobal was provided a lovely set of nuances and subtleties for the classic Haunted Key effect. There is "suggestion" and other elements that will allow the effects to be amplified for those watching. There are also great ideas which serve to make this effect a lovely segue to other effects (I am being purposely vague). These are elements particular to Cristobal's description, but I also wanted to mention that effects of this genre to me fall in the category of real magic(k). Like pendulum work, I love the reality of these types of effects. [...] I will put Cristobal's lovely subtleties to good use." - Sean Waters

"[...] I found "Living Key" to be worthy of publishing and can see that Cristobal has put a lot of thought and work into his own version of the Haunted Key. There is also proper crediting, which I am very glad about. Bottom line: buy "Living Key" and "Heavily Haunted" and you will end up with something even more spectacular." - Dale A. Hildebrandt
