Comments about Creepy Caretaker Animated Prop:

I really like him. I have been building my front yard grave yard since middle school. (I am not in college) and he was a perfect addition. I put him close to the door and put the pad under the ground so he pops up when stepped on. A crowd pleaser.

Comments about Creepy Caretaker Animated Prop:

I have bought a lot of Halloween animatronics, mostly witches. My house theme is animatronic witches and airblown black cats. But we expanded this year to include spiders and a graveyard. This guy was a perfect edition. He was sufficiently loud, he popped up and scared kids. It was great. The only bad part is putting the tombstone together because it is Styrofoam. But it worked and he did look and work great.

Comments about Creepy Caretaker Animated Prop:

Just received from another vendor by mistake, but decided to keep. Good graveyard addition, solid base, loud sound and decent voiceover and material. Because this one runs on batteries it's much more flexible as to placement. Would be sneakier if the cheap plastic hand wasn't always visible. Had to order U shaped ground stakes to hold tombstone down as it's too light like most to stay up in a breeze. But simple remedy. One of several similar props available but still nice.

scary ghoul

Bright, Good volume, Scary
Cons:
Cheesy Material, Off Switch Dosent Work
Best Uses:
Outdoors
Describe Yourself:
Midrange Shopper
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Creepy Caretaker Animated Prop:

Great when we 1st got it for our haunted forest. The bad part is that the off switch is really timer at least in this 1. So you have to take the batteries out to turn it off which is a pain. It worked well in our haunted forest and was scary and lit up perfectly. It was a great addition to our "graveyard" in the forest. The plastic hand is kind of cheesy but other than that it is fine. Hope that it works for this year

Comments about Creepy Caretaker Animated Prop:

This is by far my favorite Halloween prop that I own. It works great and, after testing it a week ago, I found that it survived storage in my closet- which isn't an easy accomplishment. The only problem I came across was trouble getting the motion detector to work; which wasn't really an issue since it went off periodically. I'm considering getting a footpad for next year.

it is over all one of the best props of my haunted garage that I make every year because it attracts people. I gave it 4 stars because the face doesn't look the same as on the video/package. Over all its really cool and I think everyone should try it out!

Creepy but issues with lift
By Naomi from Fresno, Ca on 10/15/2012
Pros:
Attractive Design, Unique
Cons:
Delicate
Describe Yourself:
Midrange Shopper
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Creepy Caretaker Animated Prop:

I like the look of this guy and his mouth moves to his words to look pretty realistic. However, the wiring that makes the lift work had some issues. I was able to take it apart and fix it but, I question how many Halloweens he'll be around. The other part I don't care for, is the gravestone, it's made out of two foam pieces and the picks that are supposed to keep the two pieces together do a horrible job. I was able to glue it together so it wouldn't keep separating but, it's disappointing that I had to do so much work on it for something I just purchased 10 minutes before. If you're looking for something to really make your cemetery pop, he'll do a great job, but he is not wired for outdoor use so it's something you would bring out the day of. Lastly the box didn't state otherwise at the store but, the AC adapter is not included for this guy.

I was looking for something to give my graveyard entrance a little kick. And this little piece delivered. My visitors were scared and excited when he rose from behind the tombstone like the great pumpkin. I dressed up the surroundings for him and POW!! Great reaction from the guest.

Comments about Creepy Caretaker Animated Prop:

After awhile of use, one of the eyes would go on and off once the creepy guy started talking... It's got to be a loose wire inside, but I refrain from opening him up...you never know how that will go... So, he's even a little more creepy than the other caretakers...

Comments about Creepy Caretaker Animated Prop:

*THE PICTURE ON THE BOX IS VERY MISLEADING*

The tombstone was poorly painted, as was the face of the Keeper. Though his face was nicley carved, the whole outfit he has on is nothing like on the box. It's a black, stiff, woven vinyl fabric robe, with a hood that has a long, thin, metal plate sewn into the front of it so it will hold its shape around the face. This robe is then covered in a loose-weave, grey nylon fabric that looks like gauze, with numorous large holes all through it. And as for the one I puchased, the nylon wasn't even properly attached to the hood (It had slid off and made a lovely frill around his neck). I hot glued the fabric back onto the hood, and proceeded to produce a convincing shape for the front of the hood with the metal strip that was thoughtfully sewn into it.

My next endevour lead me to examine his "hands". His left hand is nothing more than a poorly shaped, poorly painted, thin plastic shell hotglued to the tombsone, with a patch of velcro at the wrist area where you attatch the sleeve to form his arm. This velcro patch had to be hot glued in place because the weight if the sleeve pulled it off...

His other hand was okay, as long as you ignored the fact that it was ALSO poorly shaped, poorly painted, and had a half-inch hole drilled through it for the lantern handle.

And the lantern, in my opinion, is too small to be taken seriously. How much oil would it hold if it were to function as a real lantern? 10 minutes worth at best? And why does it taper at the top?
(I honestly think it looks like it belongs in a scale-model harbor somewhere as a miniature bell bouy)

All in all, the mechanics work great and the blue lights on the back af the tombstone that shine on his face are a nice touch. I rate it a three out of five for a wardrobe upgrade and more realistic hands and lantern.

When I first got the creepy caretaker he worked until two days before Halloween. His sound and his left eye didn't light up and his tombstone didn't come with the stakes

Awesome Prop Poorly Made

Pros:
Unique, Very Cool And Spooky
Cons:
Poor Wiring
Describe Yourself:
Budget Shopper
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Creepy Caretaker Animated Prop:

My Wife and I fell in love with this prop while shopping in the store. They only had the display model at the time so we were put on a waiting list.
The wait wasn't very long (only a couple of days).
I put it together (following the directions to the letter), but it wasn't working right.
The lights, sound, and mouth worked, but he wouldn't go up.
I wiggled the wires to the motor and then it went up.
I had two choices (open up the motor housing and re-solder the wires) or (take it back to the store).
I didn't want void any warranties so I took it back.
The store didn't have any to replace it so I chose to just get my money back.
I'm not very happy about this item.

I loved it when I first saw it in action...
(1st time back to the store) The problem was, when I got home the mouth did not work and it did not go up or down...
(2nd time back to the store) The moth still did not work (ok, so what you could hear it) would go up but not down.
(3rd time back to the store) OK I want something else now... they offered me the diplay but I said naw...
