This farmer's got tools and he knows how to use them! The 6' Barnyard Butcher is mad about more than spoiled crops, so your guests better watch out as he seeks them out this Halloween. Features a scarecrow farmer carrying a bloody head and a blood-soaked knife.

Comments about Spirit Halloween 6' Barnyard Butcher:
Barnyard Butcher is one of the most creepy, durable props out there! He features lighup red LED eyes, rotating body. moving mouth, talking severed head, and the eyes on the severed head light up as well! Great quality for the price! He is built out of a completely metal frame, and his head is plastic with the burlap over him. His severed head frame is plastic, with a high-quality rubber. He seems to work great and I love the way his eyes "glow!" Barnyard Butcher also has 7 phrases!! Can't wait to use him this year in our haunt!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Budget Shopper
Placed this in the entrance way but the door, people found it scary and some wouldn't come to the door. It was a great effect. Can't wait until this Halloween as we have added three more items to our collection.
Despite cords, he's fine and dandy. :).
The Barnyard Butcher purchased for me by my Warwick High School assistant principal, Kristina Szobachan. He arrived in the mail a day early, March 4th, 2016. His pieces are protected with cardboard. I would kind of recommend Twist Ties, like Seasonal Visions did with Moonshine Barrel Zombie. The setup is pretty simple; however, the cords are the primary problem here; there are four cords with the same two colors: Red and Black. I connected two/three cords already, and there's one black one that has no additional connection. This is the best way I could explain that. As for the instructions, they're too vague on the cords, plus "Left" is spelt incorrectly. Looking at that, the Instructions seemed too rushed to make textwise, But overall, the Barnyard Butcher is great; Superior Quality, long display, great number of features, etc.. So, he gets the rating of 9/10. The primary problem is the cords that connect from the Severed head, the arm and the body, plus the instructions being too vague on the cords. Nonetheless, he's great and I'm sure to have fun with this guy. And yes, I would definitely recommend him to a friend; besides, of all the reviews I read of him, there are absolutely NO CONS for this guy whatsoever. However, it will be hard to figure out the Cord part. Just be aware of that.

I love the Barnyard Butcher! It goes great with my pumpkin nester, corn stalker, American history mom and dad and all my other corn stalks and haybales. This is a must have for anyone looking for a great and quality made prop. It can be displayed outdoors in a covered area where direct rain can't get to it.
Wish mine played all 7 phrases, instead of just 2

Won mine in a charity and was supposed to be in perfect shape in the box, but only plays 2 of the 7 phrases the videos claim it does. Very disappointed after many Spirit animatronic purchases...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A very great prop! I think he worth the price! He has so much movement. His mouth opens and closes and so does the head he is holding. And he sways from side to side. Very creepy as well! His face his really creepy! He is probably the creepiest looking prop that I have and I have hundreds of props! He also has a lot of phrases. His knife is molded into his hand which is good because it wont fall out. Mine's hip hoop which gives the hips their shape broke and one side is lopsided. Luckily with his clothes on you can't even tell. My only issue with him is that the head he is holding pops out of his hand a lot. Its an easy fix though all you need to do is pop it back in. But other than that he is an amazing prop!
The Spooktacular Scarecrow Butcher
By Harty the Barnyard Demented Scarecrow

About Me Adventurous, Trendy
This terrifying, Barnyard Butcher, is an amazing prop. You can use this product by scaring people when they walk by or you can scare your everyday mailman when he delivers his mail. An AMAZING thing about this product is that it's very detailed. Just look at the dirty brown bag head and the dusty farmer clothing it wears. Also, look at how creepy the severed head is. It looks like it just got ripped off! How scary! One thing that doesn't satisfy me about this prop is about the severed farmer head. I wish the head talked more instead on moaning and groaning. Just think, the butcher says " Hey hey. How does it feel to be a severed head.'' Just then, the farmer's head replies '' it's very undignifying'' I just wish that head got a line. Don't you think. Well, that's my review. What's yours?

Great and Scary Decoration!
By Ethan Conlin
About Me Classic, Trendy
The Barnyard Butcher is a very Scary and Unique decoration. It really is a one-of-a-kind. The first one we bought worked well and correctly, but it didn't include the Peg at the bottom of the Scarecrow's head to put it on the body. Very easy return, and our 2nd one works Great. I love how the Farmers severed head lights up and moans as well! Very Realistic and Fun decoration!

Fun and scary
By Ethans mom
My seven year old wore this to trick or treat this year. He loved it! He got lots of compliments all night! He stated that he could see out very well, but you cannot see in, which makes it a lot of fun! I would recommend this costume to anyone!!
One of the best animatronics!
By Dr. Zombie
I LOVE this guy! Very scary. Most animatronic Halloween decorations in this price range are cheesy to me. But... this guy is awesome! Very creepy, movement is good. You can stuff his clothes with plastic bags or paper to fill him out. Very impressed with this one!
The Butcher Was A Hit
from Plainfield, NJ
About Me Adventurous, Conservative, Trendy
My mom bought me the butcher to use on Halloween night at my house. We are big home haunters and love to make trick-or-treating interesting for those who come to our home for candy. While he is not supposed to be used outside, we had him out only for Halloween night because the weather was good. He was a huge hit, looked real, and many took photos of their kids with him. What a great prop!
Fantastic and Scary Animated Scarecrow
By Sultan Sevy
from New Cumberland, PA
This is the most expensive animatronic we have ever purchased from Spirit, but also the best. It's really well designed, with high quality components, and the directions for assembling it were very good. It worked right away; no problems! Barnyard Butcher is a BIG FELLA (taller than me) and he's TRULY FRIGHTENING (scary face/eyes, gruff voice, and decapitated head is freaky and gurgles a lot). He has a wide variety of sayings, which is a nice feature. We set him up in our hallway and when kids came to Trick or Treat, we opened up the door and there he was in all his frightening glory -- we activated him with a step-pad control (add-on) as we went to go grab candy from our big candy bowl. He scared a LOT of kids and they thought he was cool.

We got the Butcher for 2014 and it drew rave reviews from the kids and adults that came by the house. Was easier to anchor down than some of the other animatronics.

About Me Adventurous, AWSOME
I really like barnyard butcher. It's the number one thing I want for Halloween. I like the way it moves its mouth when it talks, but there are some bad things about it. I really don't like the way the head grunts, but the first time I saw it I knew it would look good in my yard on Halloween. I really think you should get barnyard butcher also.

I buy props every year, and this one hear has it all! the scary creepy look good sound, This is the quality made prop & easy to assemble. Keep up this type of quality spirit.
Best prop of the year!
About Me Halloween fan
I knew the second I saw the demo video I had to get him! He's actually pretty scary. I love his phrases and his overall look. The only downsides are that for one, the head (which makes it's own separate noises!) is kind of annoying. Once the butcher is done talking, the head makes these sort of gurgley noises for a little longer than needed. Also, I couldn't get the sensor to work on mine. We just bought him a step pad though which is even better since he's in a high traffic area of the house. But he's really great! Super highly recommend!!

I wasn't sure about this guy when I saw it online, but one I saw him at the store I had to have it. By far one of my favorites.

I bought @ my local Spirits and brought home. Assembly was easy about 15 minutes. When hooked up the volume control didn't work and when it did it sounded lie the speaker was blown. I exchanged it the next day for another and it works like a dream. It will be a great addition to my hallowen display for the kids on halloween night. Very realistic and lifelike. He scares my wife when she walks into the room.

I love Barnyard Butcher!! Most of the other animatronics I looked at in person were plastic looking, all except for the Butcher. He looks like a scarecrow thats come to life!! His voice is amazing and matches up with his mouth really well. We are displaying him on our covered porch with straw bales and body parts with a red spotlight on him. He looks Awesome!!
