Comments about Lurching Vampire Animated Prop:

This is my first day with lurching vampire. I already thing it is GREAT!!!! It lurches forward to scare kids or adults! Perfect jump scare especially if you stand it up in a coffin that is standing up. When they walk past it, it will lurch out of the coffin! Its also good without a coffin! His black eyelids open up opening his eyes, his eyes light up red, he lurches forward and makes sounds such as shouting "BRAHH (evil laughing)."

immediately breaks

Best Uses:
Halloween
Describe Yourself:

Bottom Line:

Comments about Lurching Vampire Animated Prop:

this item broke within the first 6 trial runs. its "legs" are the cheapest possible brown hollow plastic tubes, and it relies solely on them to catch it after its lurch. but it's so top heavy that it just doesn't make sense that this was approved and released for sale. like i said, one "leg" broke almost immediately causing it to sway to the side during its lurch. the legs are NOT fixable. using tape is only a temporary fix. the included weight does absolutely nothing and considering how top heavy the item is, one MUST anchor it to the ground in a sturdy fashion to prevent it from falling every single time its activated. it also sucks in the wind because its body is nothing but a slim plastic tube. so when wind hit it, the viewer can easily tell its practically nothing but a cheap fabric cape draped over some slender tubes.

This is a follow up to my review last year. Our first vampire did stop working, but I called the company who were very nice and immediately sent us a new motor and now he works just fine. Fine company! Scary vampire! (even gets the older trick or treaters every time)

Comments about Lurching Vampire Animated Prop:

Bought this in 2010 for our haunted house, after a few times of use the gears broke and will not pick its self back up. It does have a scary look to it, which makes it an expensive stand arond prop. This is a piece of junk and dont wast your money on it.

Comments about Lurching Vampire Animated Prop:

Went to use Dracula for first time ever for Halloween Party. Worked great and had spooky effect for guests early on in evening. However, by end of night, did not work at all. Tried everything to get back on. Very disappointing! All that money to use for 4-5 hours. Unique prop when worked. Cheaply constructed.

We purchased this item last year, used this item outside at halloween, when we first put it together it worked just fine, his eyes lite up and he lurked forward, it was very cool. then halloween night we put him out and the first time he lurked forward the pole holding him up snapped in half, and his eyes stopped lighting up, we duct tapped him together and now he just stands there looking creepy.

Comments about Lurching Vampire Animated Prop:

Last year I saw it on the internet and thought it looked ok. Went to the store and saw it at which time I forgot what it was supposed to do so I stepped on the action pad. When it started up its eyes lit up and it started talking during which time I thought to myself "is this it" then in leaped at me and I SCREAMED causing everyone around to laugh. Of course I bought it. I even put it infront of the door. I would stand behind the door when I opened it for trick or treators. It worked so well I had to chase down one girl that ran away screaming to give her her candy.

Can't stand the wind outdoors. The first big wind broke the mechanism that makes it return to the jump position. Unable to get replacement part. Didn't even last the one day. But have to say it is really scary. Great for a haunt house.

Comments about Lurching Vampire Animated Prop:

I use many scary props for Hallowe'en that guide trick-or-treaters towards their treats. This one is so scary I must "hide" it from the very young children by placing it out of their paths. We have busloads of families who visit my "spook house", so we want it to be fun, not fateful fright.

Comments about Lurching Vampire Animated Prop:

I loved this vampire when we first got it. The lurching movement is very effective and scary. But I had to move him a foot from my door and he stopped working 20 minutes into Hallloween night. Upon further discovery one of the gears had broken inside him when I moved him. I should have been warned when the one at the store was broken in the same way, but I bought him (a new vampire) anyway. He looks great, just be very gentle with him. If anyone has any ideas where to get gears for him, I would love to know it.

Comments about Lurching Vampire Animated Prop:

Very happy with my Lurching Vampire. Works great with a footpad or "Try Me" button for well-timed scares. The motion is very sudden and realistic, but not so dramatic that it might hit anyone -- fun AND safe. My only suggestion is that you weigh down its base a bit before operating, or you might notice him scooting forward as he's used repeatedly.

Great looking vampire, but not built sturdy enough to hold when the vampire lunges forward. Item lasted one year and the platform broke due to the lunging effect.
