He stands a full six feet tall and serves as a harbinger of doom. The Pestilence Smoldering Reaper is a skeletal figured dressed in tattered clothes, and has seen horrors unimaginable; at the slightest provocation his eyes light up, his chest glows and his head turns from side to side as he utters three spooky sayings to scare all who cross his path! Set your fog machine (sold separately) on the floor within his cloak to make fog flow out from the holes in his chest, arms and head!

Comments about Spirit Halloween 6 Ft Pestilence Smoldering Reaper Animatronics - Decorations:
I typically purchase one large anamontronic from Spirit Halloween each year. We create a haunted house for the kids and parents of our neighborhood. This takes us about 1 month to completely set up everything. Our house is the main attraction for everyone and typically there is a line of people waiting to get in as my wife serves fresh popcorn outside to all that dare to enter. This year I needed something large to fill a void in my dining room/kitchen area of our neighborhood haunted house. This item was the perfect fit, it was large in size especially the height. When I received the item I immediately began putting it together, I felt the directions were easy to follow though it did take some time to complete. I was a little disapointed in how the bottom piece of material velcrowed to the upper garment. This was important to do as I did utilize a fog machine inside of this grotesque monster. I did try the fog machine prior to trick-or-treat night so it didn't work as effectively as I would have liked. Next year I will utilize some tubing inside of the piece so the for rises better to the head and heck area. Overall I was very satisfied with this piece and would recommend it as a nice addition to anyone haunted house.

Another great addition to the cemetery. Like the texture and coloration. The cane is very distinctive. Spirit customer service is also great. This was the last one in stock. When I received it, the motor made a very bad noise. They said to return it and it could be fixed. I don't have it back, yet. But, I look forward to the return.

Best Halloween decoration to buy!
For the past three years we throw a Halloween party for our four girls and their friends. This year we turned our whole house into a haunted house. We bought the Reaper this year and he was just perfect. He differently put the finishing touches on our house. Needless to say our party was a smash!

i would buy this again
I will still buy things from spirit Halloween.
Had to add some lights around to so people could see it. Being all black at night it just looked like floating green lights. The box it came it had me worried cause it was all banged up
Worked well, though we did not hook it up to a smoke machine, it was still scary for my haunted house. Hope to get many years use out of it. Came packed well and was able to pack it back up for next year in the same box.
yes i would buy these product again.
Very well put together. Fits prefix with my Halloween haunt. Been waiting for these product to go down in price so I could afford it.
Not worth the money
I used Halloween night and within 3 hours the lights in the head we're out. Easy to assemble
Not exactly what is advertised
Smoldering is a LIE! It only smolders if you buy a fog machine and put it underneath! It was huge and scary anyway, but the name is deliberate false advertising. It is also not very loud. Cannot be heard unless he's in an area by himself. Easily gets drowned out by other halloween decorations around him. His sensor is very sensitive resulting in him continuing to speak constantly.
I would buy this product again and again
Excellent product, I loved

This one is amazing but had to add more stability for it not to fall over in windy conditions
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Looking with a few fixes.
Just like most of these animatronics, it takes a little "MacGyvering" to get the product to be sturdy and not come apart (i.e. The hand joints fall out of the socket easily.) The robes that come with this tears easily and is as delicate as tissue paper. Next year, I'll make my own and throw it on him because it's not going to last past this Halloween. Other than the expected fixes that always seem to plague these products, it's a nice size, very intimidating and looks great.
Can't wait for Halloween try him out
I'll buy again from spirt
Love this reaper great addition to my display
definitely recommend it but the cost is a little high
One of my favorites! Even though there's not a lot of movement, still a menacing piece!
Looks awesome. Great deal!

About Me Midrange Shopper
I picked this guy up on a clearance sale through the site...and what a great deal. While only the head moves, this guy will definitely be a great addition to any haunted house or graveyard. The whispering voice adds to the creepiness and the detail is fantastic. Even the cane has incredible detail. Definitely worth the $$.
This Prop is awesome! Totally Reccomend!
By Callan's Halloween
from Portland, Oregon
I bought this Product last year and I use it outside in the yard and I do use the fog machine it adds a lot of affect if you buy this product I recommend it. Have the volume pretty high because its not the loudest. Also great for parties and haunted houses! One thing I have to say is that it is not the most stable so if you put it in the yard or something definitely stake it.
Great overall, the only problem I have with it is the flimsy arms.
Nice props, working longevity lacking
By Witchy wonan
from Port Carbon, Pennsylvania
It really is a nice looking prop, but voice died a week after purchasing it. And the heavy arm is attached with a fine wire, so it also broke rather quickly.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This Reaper Smoulders and scares
By Heidi G.
from Telford, Pa.
I have this big guy at my door in my screened in porch. That way I can hook up fog machine and out of weather. Looks awesome overall, great detail and clothing isn't bad either.I love phrases it says, more than one. Downside:after only one day, the voice box stopped working, Spirit was great, replaced entire prop, new one works great. Will definitely order from them again.
Great prop, especially with a fog machine!
from Wilmington, NC
This is a very nice and easy to assemble animatronic. The volume on the voice can be really loud for outside use, or dialed down to an "indoors" volume. Wish the lighting for the eyes and chest were brighter; they tended to be washed out when the prop is used with a fog machine. Liked that they included the foot activation pad with the prop. Very nice overall package, A++
Worth the cost but...
from Newburgh, Indiana
Pros:Ominous size (actually 5'10" no 6 ft).Head & hands with good paint job and look creepy as dose clothing.Easy instructions.Good lighting and head movement.Good sound.Cons:Shipped in the original thin-walled box without an outer protective box.Sensor did not work.NOTE:Called customer support on 26 Oct and on hold for 26 minutes, I explained item shipped 18 Oct, I received 22 Oct in afternoon, and invoice stated returns must be post-marked PRIOR to 23 Oct which was not possible as post office closed at 2:30, 30 minutes after I received item.However I spoke with representative, Deanna, who was extremely helpful. She arranged for me to receive item(s) needed to correct problem and to ship overnight so available before Halloween.If works then won't prate this review, and if doesn't then will to keep all posted.
This dude rocks!

About Me Adventurous
If you've read my other reviews, you know that I do a huge front graveyard. Pestilence is #2 in my line-up and was purchased 3 years ago on line. He's an impressive figure with great presence. I usually put him at the entrance to the graveyard so he can properly greet my guests. With the Velcro bottom to his robe, it makes concealing the fog machine easy & when he's smoldering, he looks GREAT! Children must be dragged into the yard with heels burrowing through the grass along with appropriate screaming and kicking and fighting while parents gleam with excitement and eagerness to pay for therapy. He is awesome! I only have one gripe. Granted I use him out doors, he's just too quiet and although the sound effects are adequately creepy, I have to amplify him using a small guitar amplifier. I wired in a 1/4" guitar cord plug to the speaker wires and it works well. Not sure if it's just the one I bought or if it's a bad design. I don't seem to have a problem with my other figures. All in all he's way cool and the crowd loves him. Go get one!
from South Jordan, UT
I bought this guy last year, and he works GREAT! The head turns goes from side to side properly. One thing I've noticed is that this prop and the Sickening Reaper prop are the same things just a different look. Oh well. But besides that, it's a great product and I would recommend this to a friend. I have no regrets in buying this. Keep up the good work Spirit!

About Me We Love Halloween
For the fifth year, we have created Zach's Haunted Garage - three years in Michigan and two years in New York. Kids earn an extra treat if they dare to visit our haunted garage. The garage contains animatronics, hanging ghouls, a coffin and a jumping spider. Plus, my son, jumps out and scares you when you least expect it. About 85 people enjoyed our garage this year and we hope to grow in the future. Spirit Halloween is essential for our haunted garage. Over the years, we have had many animatronics, and this one is by far the best ever!

I'm following up my previous review, we contacted spirit about the voice not working, hoping to get a replacement voice box, instead they had us send them a video of the reaper. Within days we were notified that they were sending us a complete new one! We recieved the new one in about a week.They didn't even want the other one back. I was very impressed with the customer service and now we will have two for next year!!
stopped talking within an hour of use
very easy to put together, was a favorite with the trick or treaters, I'm just upset the voice stopped working so quickly(within an hour of use) but motion and lights still working so overall It's not too bad

I'm using this product for my front yard display and it's so awesome
a great addition for Halloween
By Wicked Wanda
from Boise Id
My pestilence reaper will be used in my yard haunt in the "haunted cemetery". He will be a great addition because of his presence, his voice & movement. He also gives me another way to use a fog machine. I have numerous witches & skeletons so he will be a "scary" surprise.
Pretty darn cool!

About Me Adventurous, Trendy
Better quality than expected. Instructions are pretty poor, would have gone faster if I didnt bother with them. Motion sensor is very sensitive. I bought the fog machine for it, but it sprays so hard it shoots through the bottom material instead of coming up and out through the top, so the fog looks kind of "eh".
