Need to add a brick to keep it standing other than that good and spookie"
from St. George, Utah
For the short time it worked, it was awesome but it lasted less than a week. Changed batteries, nothing. It just stopped working. Very disappointing.
Cool but cheaply made
Everyone loved it but the first one I received was missing parts and the second one had issues too. I used 1/2 of each 2 get one good one.

Great prop. Bought it in 2010 and used it 3 years now. Works great! Would definitely buy another one. I use the foot pad with it and it's perfect for my graveyard!
Neat but cheaply made
from Kansas City MO
The first one I got was missing a part. But it was replaced the second one had a piece that needed repair. Between the two I ended up with one good one.
definitely a cool item
from Dexter, Iowa
this is an awesome product the only reason i am not giving it a 5 star rating is because it is poorly made for the money. The shoulders are bendable wire and you have to get them just right for it not to fall over and work properly also the hood was sewn on twisted so it would not hang properly i had to remove the hood from the forehead and untwist the fabric and straighten the wire to get it to look right but after that was done it was good. I have a similar less expensive item that is more durable.I would only recommend this product to a friend with caution.
from Pottsville, PA
Easy to put together but some of the pieces were put together at the factory wrong so I had to modify them to make the prop work correctly.
from Huntsville, AL
The mechanism that makes the animatronic go up and down is a simple antenna such as a retractable one on a vehicle and if messed with, such as by kids on halloween, will easliy bend and then it will be unusable.
three different ones bought... none work

three of these did not work and i had to return it.ended mixing and matching to get a complete one that worked. but if it works.. it is a nice prop.
Great! Super Cool!!!
By Jessica :)
from San Francisco, CA
I love this guy! He's so great and he's really scary! And I don't get why people had a hard time putting it together, because I put it together easily and I'm a 13 year old girl. I don't know, maybe they didn't read the instructions right. But this product works really well! It's sensitive, realistic (especially in the dark), loud, SUPER creepy, and such a surprise!! It scared my whole family, so I bet I could scare my friends :) I'm using it outside in front of the "graveyard" with some other scary decorations and I'll blend it in with logs and pumpkins. This is definitely a great addition to my Halloween party :)(PS if you're using it indoors, I recommend using foam to cover the speakers!)
from Chicago, IL
So disappointed that I only got to use this for one halloween! Went to set up this year and it no longer works. Not happy considering what it costs!
Good Prop - For A Day.

About Me Halloween freak
I purchased this, it worked the one day I tried it, and then the light stopped working, and sound turned off.
Lasted only one halloween
Awesome idea, and worked well for one halloween. Now it barely works and is more of a pain than anything.
Awesome idea, but needs better component

About Me Adventurous, Hallowe'en Queen
We have THE Haunted House in our little town of 7000 people. The kids wait every year to see what we are going to scare them with. I have been very happy with most of my Spirit purchases, and would have been with this one too if it had been a little more sturdy in the wiring and mechanics. The first year, it worked fine, but the 2nd year we set it up and the wiring had fallen off where it was supposed to be soldered. My husband, who is very handy, couldn't re-attach the wiring and get it working again. He called the company, but received no answer. It is truly a great idea, realistic and scary, but needs some fine-tuning on the animatronics. We set it up on our front porch at the top of the stairs. Just like a [@] greeter!! LOL!

Cheap, flimsy & not working by day 3....
from Aldexandria, VA
This was one of the more poorly manufactured items we have ordered from Spirit! Pre-assembled items did not line-up as they should have. Requires additional rigging to prevent tipping over. Motor quit working after 3 days of operation (could not lift the head & body). I do admit it was Scary the first day of operation (once we got it all assembled and working correctly) but as time went on, it started malfunctioning and then finally gave out all together...Where do I get a refund?

I got mine lat year and when i started putting it together, nothing worked. I tried all I could to get it to work, but it did absolutely nothing. I probably got a bad one though
from Merced, Ca
I had to take it to a SPirit store to get it put together and it even took them a long time...EYes don't light up. Not to mention the fact that I was double billed.

Not for Scaredy Cats !
from Oswego, NY
Awesome prop ! Scared the cats and hopefully the kids. Definitely worth the investment.
great prop, when used along other props
from Mississauga, Ont
Overall great prop, but the plastic posts are very fragile. In simply moving it around, the main plastic post twisted out and one of the flanges broke. This is a new prop for me and I hate it when things break too easily. It still works, but it needs to be handled like a crystal vase to avoid breakage...

My No.1 Prop from last year!
By Victoria The Wicked
from New York, NY
Highly recommended! This was the centerpiece of my graveyard scene at my halloween party last year and I couldn't stop laughing from all the guests he scared throughout the night. I hid him with only the jack o' lantern peering out. It scared the hell out of all my party guests. The sound activation is wonderfully sensitive - so anyone who gets within 1-2 feet of him gets a good scare and the scary sound and voice is loud enough for all in the room to hear. The only problem is that he takes up a lot of battery juice and any sound pretty much sets him off. I highly recommend getting the plug adapter and the footpad activator that goes with him - otherwise you will have to change his battery at least two or three times during the night.
Much better than picture presented here!
By Nim's spook
from Montreal Que
If you think he is cute in the picture , he is not ! He looks scary , and I love that about him ! The skull looks real and my kids were spooked out . I can't wait for Halloween to scare the kids ! The only reason I gave this product a 4 star is because my husband had taken time to assemble the small pieces . Once he started to work , the slightest sound sets him off ...OOOOHHH!
Scared people at my haunted houses i do
By Stonewall Skellington
from Champaign, IL
I recomend this to anyone wanting to pull of a haunted house, my only concern is that its battery powered. and a little to loud. but it is worth it! :D
from Southcentral Pa
This prop is awesome! It sets up pretty easily with the directions. The first time I tried it, the dog ran out of the room and the cats scattered. A bit loud for indoors but put a piece of foam over the opening and it works much better. For outdoors, I would definately bring in at night or if it rains. Keeping it out of the weather is my suggestion. But all in all, its a great prop for the price and I can't wait to scare all my party guests and trick or treaters. Well worth the money and would highly recommend it. Happy Halloween everyone!!
