For a hair-raising Halloween place John Doe in your home and watch the reaction as the blood-spattered corpse appears to come to life and slowly rise up, perhaps in preparation to walk away. The John Doe life-sized animated prop even has a toe tag - better double-check the name on it!

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

I am using this prop for my 'Killer' room at our Halloween Party. I wanted something pretty close to life sized so I didn't have to make my own body. Works perfectly! The motor is a little noisy but with all the other props it doesn't really matter. Great prop!

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

This prop works great. I don't know how much battery power it uses because we bought the adapter for from day one. the breathing sound is perfectly creepy and is great quality. you might want to add a little more fake blood to the top and sides of it but even as it comes its pretty decent.

This is very creepy and unique. However you need to bulk up the body with towels or clothes underneath so it can look more realistic.

Get To Know John Doe
By Caveman CookingVerified Reviewer from Thousand Oaks, CA on 9/16/2014
Pros:
Attractive Design, Good value, Scarey, Unique
Cons:
No volume control, Skinny Legs
Best Uses:
Kitchen, Living Room, Outdoors
Describe Yourself:
Midrange Shopper
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

John Doe arrived yesterday, put him together today. Took about 5 minutes. If the directions aren't clear enough, just use your smart phone to scan the barcode included in them. It takes you right to a video demonstration that should make it crystal clear.
Works great, looks even better. The kids eyes (11 & 9) were as big as silver dollars! We add something new to our collection each year … can't wait to get him into the mix.
Only complaints are mentioned elsewhere. 1) No volume control: plan on trying to muffle it a bit by covering the speaker. 2) Legs are too skinny: added some bulk with a couple strips of bubble wrap … they look great, now. At the current price, under a hundred bucks (plus, a discount coupon), this one was a no brainer (please excuse the pun, John).

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

Item works great just as described. The feet are realistic . I wish the face underneath the sheet was painted an there was more of a body to be a able to use the prop without the sheet .
I purchased the prop using a coupon an feel it should still be sold for less.
But it looks cool in my coffin .

Great prop!
By BevVerified Reviewer from The Woodlands, TX on 9/9/2014
Pros:
Easy Assembly, Realistic
Best Uses:
Haunted House, Morgue Scene
Describe Yourself:
Midrange Shopper
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

I bought this prop to go inside our Haunted House. We are doing a morgue and this prop will be perfect in the storage room. The sound effects are realistic.

Only negative with this prop is that once it rises, it stays up-right for quite a while. It would be great to be able to adjust the time on it, or just have it lay back down after a few seconds.

Best Uses:

Describe Yourself:

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

I cut cords to sounds, after all a dead body should rise sneaky and quietly. Had a HUGE party and bought an old vintage gurney along with al old IB bag stand. Filled bags w blood (red water) and made it drip onto medical pad on floor. Put This on Gurney with step pad. Friend came our to check out decor for party had no idea he moved. Was even poking him and laughing at it, she stepped on pad.
Slowly and quietly it started to rise, when caught movement she literally screamed caught her breath and screamed more, running backwards and fell over the couch! Made this item worth every penny.. Freaked out the teenagers at the party too!! Hahaha

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

I loved John Doe he was a hit at my Halloween party! I just got him last year (Halloween 2013) and everyone loved him. I used him as a prop in my human butcher shop. He scared a lot of my friends and my nephews/nieces! I plan to use him again this year. He is very delicate so you have to be careful, Overall it is a great product.

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

Received item in a beat up makeshift box and appears to have been used (leaves were still stuck to the fabric). No instructions included and appears to be missing an A part. Works ok if heavy wait is used to keep the apparatus down. Still expect better from Spirit.

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

We used John Doe in our homemade coffin in our gazebo at our family park. Even though the temperatures were in the 30's the three nights we had the park lit up, John Doe rose to the occasion as people entered the gazebo without using the foot pad we purchased. We have around twenty ghouls and this was one of the most active.

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

Great looking, easy to set up and store. Great addition to home haunt. Very scary in operation room setting with strobe light. Only complaint is it needs a volume control, it has very loud breathing sounds. It would be better if no sound and no blood splatter on head.

Broke shortly after we started using it
By SkeezixVerified Reviewer from Chandler, AZ on 10/21/2013
Pros:
Looks creepy, Looks Realistic
Cons:
A Bit Loud, Motor Was Noisy, Poorly put together
Best Uses:
Butcher Shop, Morgue
Describe Yourself:
Budget Shopper
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

We loved this addition to our Haunted House... until it broke about 2 days after we got it. Fortunately we did a test run for our party and it rose up, went down, then made a loud POP sound and just kept clicking and jumping (would not reset). It finally made another POP sound and then was done.

When I picked it up to check what happened, I could hear bits rattling around inside the main box so obviously something fractured.

Since we bought it online (was an Online Only purchase) we could not send it back for a replacement in time (party is 4 days away) so we will have to take it to a local store and "settle" for something else.

Loving the John Doe as the centerpiece to my Halloween table. Lights and food will surround it and when people come to get food it rises and then lies back...we tested on some friends and they love it. Very creative.

I think John Doe is awesome. Only complaint would be that he's just a little too loud but that might be a pro for others....depending on where he's set up. Can't wait to see how he goes over at the party!

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

We were really excited when we received this product. It is a large portion of our Halloween party because it will be laying/sitting on the table as a center piece that the caterer will work around. Unfortunately, it only worked as designed ONE TIME. The time it did work, it was awesome. A great effect and wonderful display. The great news is I called Spirit Halloween and they handled the problem IMMEDIATELY. Spirit was attentive to my dilemma, put a new one in the mail, and wanted my center piece to be perfect.
