He's tall, he's dark and he's evil. The Animated Ripping Reaper of souls harvests horror and lives on to tell tales from the dark side. Looming over six feet tall, he rips open his tattered robe to reveal the faces and illuminated red eyes of lost souls whilst he chants scary sayings. His mouth actually moves when he utters his incantations and his red eyes light up to haunt those who do not listen. Sooner or later the Reaper will come for you - why wait? Get him now before he gets you first!

Fairly decent product. Does what advertised.
By Matt Degenerate
from LA, CA
This was a very good animatronic, unfortunately the sound activation is really poorly located and you have to clap. Footpad/try me button option doesn't work in the slightest even on a replacement. But other than that it's very well built, I do wish the Skull was the same as the picture but the one sent is probably much more sturdy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Reaper Of Souls
About Me Midrange Shopper
So I got the grim reaper for Christmas, all my big issues about it come from the head. The head just gets put on no really locking into place so it can come off too easily. The chest had a piece of foam missing from it the sound cuts out at times the mouth was not in place and when was put in place the motor seemed really week, it worked really good like once but then the mouth stopped moving not even half his phrase. The head was just thrown in the box while everything else was twisted tied in The left eye had a delay when I turned it on one, and the cord is so short it won't even touch the ground from where it plugs into the reaper. There are good features but I wanted to say all these bad ones. Because those are usually the most important.
Guest Services Response:Thank you for reaching out to us about your Ripping Reaper of Souls. If the head fitting is loose a trick is taking electrical tape and wrapping it around the prongs, it will add some thickness to them as well as give it some grip. If there are any other issues, please reach out to Dr. Zombie and his Tech Support staff, we will be able to assist you further.

Great looking item.
from coon rapids, mn
for the cost, I wish it would ship in another box, mine was mangled and all taped up by the time it got to me and that's what is needed to store it in. But it looked great in my graveyard. Nice size. I wish it would be more sensitive. You have to make a loud crash or clap or slam door to make it go off.

This thing is BIG
from North East, MD
The quality of this is higher than most. Cloth cloak, rubberized head/hands. It's really cool. The motor/gears are a little noisy when the chest is closing, hope it's not a sign of early failure though. It's also very tall and intimidating!

The BEST Spirit has to offer
from Chicago IL
This really is one of the best props Spirit sells its very tall very creepy and hes not too loud or quiet the stand he comes with is nice and sturdy and is a bit heavy so it will stand strong on Halloween night his assembly was one of the quickest and easiest I have worked with yet well worth the money I'm extremely excited to put him on display his one and only problem is that his sound activation is not very sensitive but other then that hes fantastic the picture doesn't even do it justice

My only complaint - and I've seen it from other reviewers - is that the motion/sound sensor is not nearly sensitive enough. The first two years I used it, we either clapped or yelled to activate. Quite by accident, I put the fog machine close to him and, when the fog dispensed, he turned on! On Halloween night I just hit the button on the fog machine when folks come to the door. Definitely a great scare!

By Rhonda the mom
from Louisville, Ky
We had him set up in the house for a few hours to see how he would do, he was very cool, great idea, loved the opening of the dress to show the eyes. Def would scare a few! Our only complaint was you actually had to stand in front of him and clap to get him to start. We moved the sensor all around from top to bottom and still wouldn't sense people walking by or even a scream. But did work every time with a clap. I would recommend this only if you get it on sale for the work you have to do to make it work.

TRUELY LIFESIZE.. REAPER

By Corperal Punishment, U.S.M.C.
I loved the quality of materials used, very robust, solid design. I did have a problem with the animated mouth peice. It didn't fuction as advertised, in fact, it barely moved at all. By the time we got it, it was too late to reurn it and have it replaced in time for halloween. So, we'll just suck it up for now, and after halloween, I'll do some brain surgury and fix it myself. We do like it a lot, we believe that the problem with the mouth is just a fluke.

I've used this in my Halloween display for the past couple of years. The kids and parents alike enjoy the animatronic. My only complaint is that although it is audio activated, the sensor isn't overly sensitive. In order to activate the prop you have to stand in front of it and yell or clap your hands loudly. I would much prefer if normal conversation while walking by would activate it.

Most awesome prop EVER!
By Kay the Queen of Halloween
from San Jose, CA
About Me Adventurous, Classic, Gothic Lover, Haunted house owner, Queen Of Halloween
Wow, I thought this looked great in the video. It looks even BETTER in person. In the video it looks like the eyes under his robe are simply shining through a piece of thin fabric but in reality there are actual screaming faces under there!This was the BEST birthday present EVER! I named him Roger and we can't wait till Halloween.

Weak motion sensor
from Plattsburgh NY
About Me Joker
I build a self standing Haunted House on Halloween and this prop fits the need well. It blends in well into the shadows and its size has been mistaken for an actual person. It has become quite the conversation piece amongst friends and neighbors. I found that the location of the motion sensor was a poor designing flaw. Its blocked by the fabrics easily. However; I remedied that by using the footpad . If you cover the pad well it will work much better than the sensor alone. Yeah its a bit pricy, but I feel that if it scared at least one child and an adult( yes...its caught some parents unaware) then it was worth it. I loved the reactions.....too cool for words. It has become one of my main props...love it!!!
need better sound activation
By halloween fan
from crown point, in
use it outdoors. it looks great, but the sound activation isn't sensitive enough. you have to clap your hands or yell to activate. would be better off if motion activated.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Guest Services Response:Thank you for the feedback on the Ripping Reaper of Souls. Our Quality Control team will review this and see if this will be a better design change.
