Five pictures of a nineteenth-century family that will allow you to create different effects of extraordinary and bizarre mentalism.

The mentalist takes three photos and mentally chooses for the spectator. After a few steps the mentalist will be able to identify the spectator's thoughts. To make the effect more impossible, the mentalist repeats it all but with the photos faced down.

A real séance where the spectator will become the medium and will be able to identify the only family member who died in a tragic way. An incredible effect where the real protagonist is the spectator himself.

The mentalist and the spectator will both have the 5 pictures of the family members. The mentalist puts the pictures face down in order of who died first to last and invites the spectator to do the same. Once the pictures are turned over, they appear to be perfectly matched.(NOTE: To do this effect you will need two decks of The Family)

a deck contains 9 high quality cards (tarot size, 310 gsm linen)

- 5 photographs of the main characters with two special secrets that allow to create varius bizarre mentalism effects.
- 2 photographs with a blood stain on the back to perform two different versions of "Find a Dead"
- 1 special Helen's picture for horror style effects
- 1 double-back picture, with a blood stain on one side

(This review is for The Family by Max Vellucci)
The cards are nicley produced and easy to handle . The instuctions which you have to download are a basically straight forward no frills affair, with some patter. They give you enough information to allow you to do the effects advertised. Now this is the bit I really liked, there is no dvd taking one through the rountines bit by bit. Yes, you can watch Max perform these effects , and if you want to copy him, fine. but for me the beauty of this package is what you can do with the cards off your own back. Extra card designs are supplied giving scope to delevope your own routines and ideas. The effect opens up the imagination in terms of presentation, I can see this one becoming a firm favourite.

The ideas for routines that came with these cards are decent but not great. I can see a lot of potential here, but I haven’t had time to come up with a routine that really is something special.
I think this effect needs one of consultants, like Rick Lax, to see what he can come up with and then include that with this product. Once I have more time I will see what I can do, because like I wrote before, the potential is here but the ideas that came with the effect didn’t fit into my style enough to put into my routine.
