Criss Angel Magic Tricks Revealed

Updated on May 24, 2011

Who is Criss Angel?

Criss Angel is one of the most well-known modern day magicians. MTV even went as far as calling him the "modern day Houdini". Well that's MTV. But if you have seen any of Criss Angel's magic demonstrations on TV or online, you probably were astounded, amazed, and dumbfounded with the demonstration.

Interestingly, Criss Angel does not claim to have supernatural powers. He even went as far as saying that he doesn't know anyone who can demonstrate to have supernatural powers. Criss Angel even offered a cool one million greenbacks from his own pocket to anyone who can prove that they have supernatural powers. This he did on national TV.

His rise to fame came with his television show "Criss Angel Mindfreak". In this show, he showed amazing feats like walking on water, levitating from one building to another, making cards move without touching it, and a lot more.

Criss Angel is of Greek decent and was born Christopher Nicholas Sarantakos in December 16, 1967.

In this hubpage, we will reveal how Criss Angel performs some of his amazing tricks. Ready? Let's move on then.


Criss Angel Explains How He Floats

In the above video, Criss Angel explained how levitation is performed. This seems simple once you know how it's done. But to someone who has no clue, this levitation demo will seem authentic.

Remember that knowing how to do a trick is just part of the equation. Performance is equally important. Criss Angel is very good with misdirection. Notice how he directs attention to his arms while he removes his foot from one of his shoes.

A little theatrics also adds a lot to the impact of the performance. In most of his performances, you will see Criss appear to be concentrating real hard before a demonstration. It's all part of the show. Those grunting sounds too.

Chain Around Neck Trick Explained

Another Criss Angel illusion you can easily replicate is the Chain Around Neck trick. A chain is tied around Criss's neck and two guys pull from either end of the chain. Magically, Criss 'escapes' from the chain.

Again, Criss demonstrates his excellent ability to distract and use it to his advantage. The long hair helps to hide the fact that the chain around his neck was tied in a false loop. It wasn't really tied around his neck. He appeared nervous before he asked the guys to pull the chain as hard as they can. All part of the show.

View the video below to see how it was done.

Criss Angel Vanishes

Here's another short video showing Criss Angel vanishing right before your eyes. He's standing on top of table. He covers himself with a blanket. And poof! He's gone.

But if you take a closer look at the video, you will see that there's something not quite right. The shadows look a little different. You will notice that there's enough space under the table to accommodate a crouching Criss hidden Angel. =)


Magic Is All In The Mind

Magic is illusion. Even the great illusionists will tell you. They may engage in some small talk to distract you while they prepare their tricks but that's all part of the show.

Like I said earlier in this hubpage, knowing how a trick is done is but part of the equation. The delivery and performance often has the more explosive effect on the audience.

Thanks for reading!

If you enjoyed this hub, please don't forget to give some thumbs-up love!

      Mind Freak!!!

      I use to love that show, but he has those awkard characters he created and having too many disappearing tricks and mind guessing. I enjoy seeing his levitation tricks and walking on water.

      Yeah that was disgusting. I think one of the best Criss Angel illusions is the one where he floated from one building to another. That was really awesome.

      You got to handed to Criss Angel and others in the Magic industry, they each have their own style of culminating performances which identifies with all sorts of audiences. As a close-up Magician and Prestidigitator there is no doubt that Stage Magic and Street Magic needs to continue expanding in order to maintain the traditional arts of illusions!

      There are some things that he does where it seems more than just your typical magic trick, if that makes sense. He can put on a show, for sure, but he does do a really good job, I have to say. But some of the stuff he does, just seems very odd, but very odd in a GOOD way.

      Im sick of all Criss Angels tricks. Like above, most of them are the worst actors. Even when people in the background are looking, they are probably looking at something else because the camera angle changes.

      Yeah magic is just illusions, part of that illusion is believing in the result. Many people have posted that they didn't like how the tricks were revealed and I agree. There are magic websites and blogs for this, it really should be kept in the industry.

      Yeah Criss is using illusions which include mirrors, camera angles, confidants, possibly studio shots for his magic, but that is what magicians do, always have, and always will.

      I just say get past the need to know how and step back and enjoy the art.

      I never believed in magic before and every time i ask someone regarding magic only one name comes up every single time. He is known by many names but one name is been used again and again is the " The Guru" Yes The Guru of all peers in pakistan and magicians. He had live in the underground world of magic for the last 15 years now.

      I had this friend who have tried this and now he performing miracles.

      Kamran Khan Store gives you the ability to uses the energy to rearrange or control the genes in your own body. So if you mastered it, it would it be possible to genetically reprogram yourself? The answer, in theory, is yes! You are now entering the black art of magic. Please note that it is not a magic trick, neither it involves any other tricks or props.

      I’m Sana From Lahore. I use to work for the Daily News for few years. I have been researching Black Magic for few years now and meet hundreds of hundreds of people. People have no idea what really black magic is and what are it’s effects. People who pretend to say they know black magic or they do black magic is a total lie. Only 27% of people in the whole world know how to do a really black magic and rest of them are just faking it. We muslim have a very low faith in Allah or you can say no faith at all, believe in black magic in seconds. After a few years of good study and research I also found that, there is a person called ” The Guru ” lives somewhere in Pakistan who teaches Spiritual Healing, Power Of Chi and Mind Power to 80% of the peer saab in Pakistan. For the last 3 years I been try to track this person and was getting no where. 3 months ago I received a phone call from a person stating that he wanted to see me regarding the information about ” The Guru “. So I called my friends and told them about the call and wanted them come with because i didn’t wanted to go alone. So finally we got there as we were advised. First didn’t wanted to believe him because for the last few years i been searching for this guy and all of sudden now he is willing to give the information about him for free ?. Came to find out that he use to work for some famous peer saab just out side from lahore. That Guru use to visit that peer saab on a monthly bases, this guy use to be the peer saab assistance and one day he decided to leave peer saab and start his own business. He contact ” The Guru ” and got refused because ” The Guru ” said that he cannot provide services because his Peer Saab is his clients. The information that he provided us, we verified it and here it is:

      ” The Guru ” real name is Kamran Khan. Worked with many famous names including Criss Angel & David Blane in magic for over 15 years now. Recently we also discovered that he has a website with name of ” Kamran Khan Store “, from where he deals with clients. He travels in most of the asia. You have seen the magic show on Star One, Those are also his clients including that Franz Guy. If you see this guy he is only 35 Years old and people of his double age sits below him because He is there teacher. There is not a single Peer Saab specially in Lahore who are not his students. He only stay in Pakistan for 15 days and then he travels again.

      After discovering all this I was shocked to see the result, there are hundreds and thousands of people go these Peer Saab every day and spend thousands and thousands of Rupees. All that money is really going to the ” The Guru ” Kamran Khan. The more these Peer Saab makes the more he makes money.

      So in other words if you really wanted to see a Peer Saab just go the ” The Guru ‘ it’s more cheaper way i guess.

      Open your eyes people , the tricks he does are real, quantium physics proves that our world is an illusion , made up of an infinate energy field of information and consiousness. If you can tap into that energy . You can teleport walk on water , read peoples minds , rearrange matter into what you please. Obviously you don't believe you can or you would. I'm just wondering why Chris doesn't fly around like Neo . I know I can :)

      There is no such thing as black magic. He is not all powerful. There isn't real magic behind it. He's an illusionist. It's all for entertainment. Stop being so gullible. There is a trick behind everything he does. Penn and Teller said it best. It's a magicians job to makes you think what they're doing is really happening.

Many time meera is been seen with kamran khan driving in the car and few times her car been parked out side kamran khan house in DHA Lahore EE Sector whole night. Just a friend ? then why spending the night at his home .?

      Some new pictures of Meera has been leaked on internet in which she was seen with his un-official husband at un-known beach and enjoying a very cool weather there. Scroll down to see her pictures. Meera Pakistani actress Scandal Video Meera Pakistani actress Scandal.

      Any good magician can pull off a good trick no matter what. The fact that the people on the street didn't see it coming doesn't mean they don't know it was a trick, it means they weren't expecting him to do what he did. By the way I found a website that give you prizes for your opinions and 4 play games here is the topic about Chris:

      Magic is just an illusion -- as I found out from these videos plus a show on AXN which revealed how magicians perform their tricks. But you've to acknowledge these guys for their talent and their ability to make us believe what is actually not happening or true.

      of course it is fake, all magic is fake. He is an illusionist and he does this to entertain his audience, that is what all illusionists do, entertain. I don't see why people hate him so much when all magicians/illusionists do the same things he do, convince people that he is magical...

      and its the JINS "the devil's genies" who actually perform the act while we cannot see them.

      the clue lies in the shadow shown.

      These people own satanic spirits and in return those spirits do assignmens for them,

      He must have a supernatural power, because he cuts a stranger selecting from a park into two parts, which is even impossible with tricks. In India there was Shai Baba, who just died few months ago. I guess Criss Angel is also like Shai Baba.

      I used to like him, but for some reason he seems evil and creepy to me now. Somebody gave me a deck of his cards, and i had to throw them out. They had an evil feel to them. I don't know if he is evil, I just know that he is wearing the uniform of a satanist. Even his name creeps me out now that i took the time to think about it. I enjoy magic and illusions but not that much. My gut tells me that something is not right with him in a spiritual sense, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.

      see i don't understand why people like to say magicians like criss angel are FAKE, or SETUP everything . i have one word, duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh!!!!!! 3 words, illusion, sleight of hand, and misdirection. Those are the 3 steps to setting up a perfect magic trick, hell you only need 2 of them to make a really kick ass trick. Sleight of hand and misdirection. large scale illusions take more professionalism, practice, and every stupid skeptics favorite word, FAKE. they have to be setup, come on you really think that anyone can do that for real? come on study this shit all the time, i know what i'm talking about, take my word for it people!!!! lol Also there are 2 types of audience and bystanders in his performance. The ones that are actors and put up to the trick with him, and the ones that rally do not know wtf is going on. Its the brilliant mind of a magician people.

      To be honest! I knew all this before I read it however when I read this here, there was a little part inside me screaming and crying and wanting everything that was said here not to be true because the truth is that I really love criss! And even though I know the truth Im still really upset!I just really really really love criss Im his little Angel even though he may not know Im even alive! Im always there wherever he is! And even when he is 99 years old I will still love him and I will still be his little angel
