This animated prop is so scary it could raise the dead! 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!
Additional Information

  • Requires 4 AA batteries; not included
  • Item Dimensions: H" x L" x D"- 35" x 52" x 21"
  • 3.53 lbs
  • For indoor use
  • Optional foot pad activator sold separately

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

Purchased this for my halloween display and it sat up and went down correclty but it would snap really loudly when it went down like the gear was off. Really cool if it is working right. Side note: Spirit Halloween is working with me to resolve the issue although it is not resolved at this time.

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

We put "john Doe" inside our home-made casket, when people entered the room near the casket he would sit up,then go back down. The only comment I have is his arms should reach up also when he sits up and although the head was detailed with nose, mouth etc. you can't make out any of these features thru the sheet.

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

I bought this to lay on a hospital gurney and he was the perfect addition to the rest of my setup. When I first put him together and turned him on I had the pole backwards and he folded himself in half. LOL I thought about leaving him that way cuz it was kind of creepy but took away from its natural effect. He definitely scared people.

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

Very cute idea unfortunately within one day of using it started clicking loudly which I'm assuming was the interior gears. There was no obstruction anywhere that could be seen and believe me I looked. Maybe I just got the lemon but unfortunately I paid for the lemon. I would've absolutely loved it if it works properly.

Comments about John Doe Life-sized Animated Prop:

This props is great for my large Halloween display. I built a stand for it and put it in my morgue display. This made the display better and scary. It is easy to build and take apart. The best way to use this props is an adapter which can be purchased from your local spirit store. I used gorilla tape to secure the base to the stand to prevent it from falling over

Great addition to our Halloween setup! The animation aspect really brought our yard to life. Only issue was the speaker with the sound effects ending up breaking but we had sound effects playing through a speaker system so no harm no foul. Overall it is a great 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.

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).

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 .
