The beast has awoken! This 6' Smoldering Zombie looks awesome coming out of waves of fog (fog machine sold separately), which at first mask his true evil, but all your guests will be stunned with fright as they hear his tormenting growls as he seeks human flesh. His tattered clothes can’t cover his veins as they glow a fiery orange-red and his eyes alight with a demented glow. You’ll have everyone running in fear as this zombie’s lifelike arms come to life, making him a menacing fixture in any haunted house.

HE IS MAGNIFICENT
About Me Midrange Shopper
I love this prop! He is very well detailed and has a bright design to him. He has lots of animation too! He moves side to side and arms move up and down, so lots of animation. He also has his audio which was the problem with mine. When I first took him out, he didn't make sound what so ever. I even tried moving the volume control and it wouldn't play. Eventually though, we got him to play his sound. Overall I recommend him and he is a really cool prop, just wish his quality was just a bit better.
Nice detail, but it worked for literally 5 minutes and then the speaker quit.
Absolutely would buy him again!
He is awesome!
My son loved him and he is not into "scary"!
My son named him"Jerry"! He stood by our refreshment table...be prepared to jump when you catch him out of the corner of your eye! Will require decent storage area as a complete tear down is not suitable.

This guy is awesome !!
from Oakland New Jersey
I will put him in my graveyard scene I do every year he has great detail can be a little tricky to assemble at times but not too bad haven't gotten to try the fog option yet as I just got him a few days ago and I have a bunch of other props out so I'll have to wait to try that but I'm glad I found him because he's becoming rare now
Very unique love the fact that you can hook up a fog machine up!!! And Thur way the head and chest light up really looks like he's burning
One of the best animatronics I've gotten. The continuous loop mode works great. No issue trying to get sensor to work!
Effect is GREAT, Quality is so-so.
I'm torn... This is a really cool Halloween decoration, but I already had to glue his clothing to fix him. The effect is GREAT but the quality is bordering on poor. Given the price, I expect more. I have had this problem with Spirit before. The quality in the manufacturing is not real good but I love their products. I don't want to pay a lot of money for something and then need to repair it. But I still keep buying from Spirit because I LOVE Halloween and they do have some great animatronic decorations.

By House of nightmares
from Phelan, CA
Set him up as a main focal point in my haunted house this year and he worked for the first night and never again. I plug him in and sometimes he'll light up for a split second and then nothing. The store won't do anything about it. Huge waste of money

About Me Budget Shopper
I put it in our front room beside Rosemary Zombie Girl who we bought a few years ago from your store here. They are both scaring the kids in our neighborhood!!!
If my product does not get replaced I probably won't buy
I got to use it for 2 hours before it broke. I buy an animatronic every year. This is the first time I had a bad product, I'm hoping it will be replaced by spirit Halloween.
Guest Services Response:We appreciate you taking the time to leave us your feedback, and we're so glad that you come back to Spirit every year for a new animatronic! We're sorry to hear that this smoldering zombie did not work for you. We'll be reaching out to you via email to make sure that you get a zombie that can properly frighten your guests. Thanks again for your review!
Looks great, but weak welding points
from Charlotte, NC
I assembled this product the other day and during the assembly, there are two posts on the bottom of the main frame that connect to the base. While connecting the frame, the right post came right off in my hand. There are 3 tiny welding spots and they just gave way. This guy looks great, but be very very careful when assembling. Also, the instructions for the fog machine placement are horribly vague in the instructions given.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I love the product but when you convert to CA dollars it is very overpriced. Thats the only problem. It was almost $400 so there should be a conversion to other countries when you buy online. Spirit Halloween is the only online site who doesn't convert for us.
Burning up Halloween
Burning hot guy...pairing him with the Black widow woman for a couple of people who are very distinct...
Zombie came fast and in perfect condition. Packing was great. I set it up immediately to make sure everything was in working order and instantly scared both my son and dogs. I cant wait to scare the neighborhood children on Halloween :)
Really creepy and lifelike
from Fall River, Ma
I got this zombie and I couldn't wait to put him together. Was a little difficult at times to put together. He looks great, moves nicely, creeps out family when they walk by him. Plan to use the fire and ice orange light which looks like fire as well as fog machine to add to effect. Can't wait for Halloween and the hundreds of trick or treaters I plan to scare.....lol
By Halloween Haunter
He works great! one of his poles were snapped when he arrived so we re-glued it he works 100% but he leans
I purchased Smoldering Zombie at the Flagship Spirit Halloween Store in August 2015. I've got to admit that the price is a little much, but that's just a minor flaw. After all, Smoldering Zombie is Semi-Pneumatic, not that he would run via an Air Compressor, though. Smoldering Zombie may seem hard to assemble, but no.. He is super simple to assemble. There are even letters to guide you through his assembly. After you assemble him, plug in the adapter and watch him go! When on Constant-Motion, or if he senses Motion or a Step Pad, the Smoldering Zombie will grunt and groan as his head, eyes and chest illuminate whilst turning his body side to side and his arms up and down. Not to mention, he has Volume Control, but the audio quality is not that good. But, that can be fixed… With Speakers! Smoldering Zombie has an External Speaker Jack!.. Meaning you can plug in your Speaker into Smoldering Zombie's External Speaker Jack to make him sound more realistic! You can even make him fog! He comes with a Fog Timer plus a Tube to hook up to your 400 WATT Fog Machine! He has a Three-Way-Switch: On/Try-Me/Sensor. When he is in the "On" position, he will be on Constant-Motion mode and continue his sequence until either he is unplugged from the Electrical Power Outlet or if the switch is on Try-Me/Sensor. The other two are self-explanatory. Smoldering Zombie is flawless. He makes a great display in my Home Haunt!

Fell in Love in the Store But....Had major problems !!!
from irvine ca
We purchased this dude brought it home and spent a ton of time setting up. It wouldn't work. Then we had to return it which is a hassle even though we know to save our receipts they always look at you in the store like "we" did something. Anyhow we exchanged it and set up the second one. This go around was a teeny bit easier but not by much. At first he didn't work. Then he worked, then not working. I seriously Love this guy but not worth the hassle and who knows when we pull it out of the box this Sept will he work? or not work?

from Lincoln, Nebraska
I purchase several props every year to add to our haunted, creepy yard and asylum. This prop was perfect, everyone who came by commented how "cool" he was. We have a large display for people to enjoy but this one caught everyone's attention. Hes great!
VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE
I was happy with this item and all the animatronics I have purchased from Spirit Halloween. We use them for our annual neighborhood Haunted House which we try to add to each year and your items do not disappoint
Zombie rocked it!
By Cindy Lou Who
from American Canyon ca
This was the highlight to my ever growing zombie cemetery. Loved the size, the animation...even the smoldering body, but the sound could have been a little more gruesome and a bit louder. Other than that it was a great addition to my Halloween yard.
Great, Scary Figure for ANY Halloween Party!
from Olive Branch, Mississippi
I love this guy! He was easy to assemble and looks great in any part of my Halloween display! His lighted eyes and chest make him a great addition to any dark corner, and his flailing arms really call attention to this figure! I would highly recommend this animatronic to any collector!
By The Halloween Lady
from Indio, Ca
This item was a great addition to my ring of fire display. The glowing effects were fantastic. However, the short tubing that was provided did not give the desired fog effect as expected. I added additional tubing and the effect was perfect.
loves it plans on getting the baby in this year
