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-splattered corpse appears to come to life and slowly rise up, perhaps in preparation to walk away. The 3' John Doe life-sized animated prop even has a toe tag - better double-check the name on it!
PLEASE NOTE: Eyes do not light up. Image is a dramatization.

Scared the heck out of people!
By Dead Sled
from Wichita Falls, TX
About Me Adventurous
John Doe is in a coffin - in the back of our Hearse, the Dead Sled. We took him to an event called, The Zombie Crawl. We pull the coffin out onto a gurney, open the lids and turn John on. People were taking SO many selfies by the coffin and suddenly John Doe rises up. It scared the heck out of hundreds of people! Lots of screams and fun times!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Horrible, No Sound, No Help
from Greenfield IL
Purchased this online... I purchased this in September getting ready for Halloween and here we are 5 days from Halloween and I just opened this yesterday and it DOES NOT WORK!!!!!!!! it will not move at all !!! I'm not a happy camper right now. I have sent two (2) emails now to Spirit of Halloween and I have gotten NO answer on what to do... the Live Chat is a flipping joke!!!! and if you call the # you are put on hold forever!!! I finally had to hang up...

About Me Midrange Shopper
I love this prop! He does however have a hard time sitting up without falling. Lol And he's extremely loud. No volume control whatsoever. All in all though, I would buy again. Tons of cool ways to use him!
looks ok tried it out and it will work for what I need

I would definitely recommend him for any body part scenes.
I used John Doe on a kitchen table for my inside butcher shop scene. Whenever people walked into the butcher shop he rose and was very real like. Scare everyone. John Doe had great sound, easy to assemble and a great presentation.
Excellent addition to our cemetery
from East Longmeadow, MA
Fits perfectly into a wooden coffin we use in our cemetery scene. Definitely caught everyone's attention when it rose up and then laid back down.
I used this prop in my coffin. Worked great!
The favorite of all
This is a pretty cool decoration. I think it was everyone's favorite.
I would recommend this!
Very happy, works as it should. Can't wait for it to sit up out if the coffin!
I would buy this product again
Love this product!! I just wish it had hands.
What a WOW factor. Can't wait for the kids to come to the door!
would buy this product again based on my experience with it
This item is great. The only reason that I gave it only four rather than five stars is the fact that the video and ad for it misrepresent it somewhat by showing the eyes light up on the demo. In reality, the eyes do not light up. One could argue that the absence of lit eyes makes it look more like a real corpse.
Very happy with purchase!
I would definitely buy this again
I'm going to use this guy in a coffin on Halloween .the speaker is really load with no volume control you have to be creative to muffle the sound a little other than that it works great really creepy
Happy with this item.
Very realistic and scary. Using in our Halloween haunted house.
Pretty cool anamatronic
By Heather H
This is a great anamatronic! The only thing I would say is that it does not have light up eyes as shown in the video. I do like that it runs by batteries and also has the option to plus onto the wall. It's going to be an awesome addition to our collection.
Works good out of the box.

I ABSOLUTLY LOVE IT!!!!!
OMG this animatronic is AWESOME!!!! The first one came in and the box was pushed in and after seeing FedEx just toss it on my porch I knew to open up the box. Sure enough the leg bar holding the leg bar was broke. Now this thing was package beautifully. You couldn't have packed it any better. It was right where fedex had chucked the box on my porch against the door. I called Spirit and they went above and beyond customer service to help me out. 5 days later I got a new one. Same packaging but this time no dents and tears. Took it out out some batteries in and I absolutely love this thing, I have now added John Doe to my 36 other animatronics and I am a happy haunter as always!! Thanks Spirit!!!

it was a good use in the for scaring people
Used this prop for a psycho doctor chamber in my haunted house. Was great when the doctor turned around and John Doe started rising! Had a lot of patrons ask if it was a real person under the sheet.
Really good but should have plugI will go to spirit Halloween all the time
Would buy again and recommend to others!
I loved this product once we got one that worked. We ordered two and the third finally worked. We put on a huge halloween display for the past 16 years and the kids and parents enjoyed this display at the morgue as much as we did. We add something new each year from spirit. Love this store!
I would buy another one again
I put it in my coffin and it worked great
