Comments about Spirit Collapsible Fabric Coffin Prop:
Making a vampire lair in my haunt and needed a coffin. The selection is sparse and some of the offerings are pretty pathetic. This one seemed interesting so I gave it a try. Don't really regret getting it but not sure whether I can use it as it is actual size and a little large for the small room I was going to display it in. My main complaint is that the coffin walls are fortified with cardboard instead of a metal frame and this gives the coffin a rather sloppy look. The lines defining the classic shape are not clean and straight. Being something of an artist I did try shaping the "walls" of the coffin to make them straighter but just ended up looking a bit cheap and frumpy (the coffin I mean). Tomorrow I will go pick up some properly sized panels of thin but sturdy wood and replace the cardboard with that in hopes of improving the overall look. I might also try using some black paperboard or whatever you call that really thick posterboard and cutting out my own exterior and then setting this down inside for a nice interior. Final thoughts are that it is an interesting piece if your standards are on the cheesy side but if you want realism like I do you may have to do some crafting.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Coffin for our crypt
By THAT house in your neighborhood...

About Me Midrange Shopper
We used this to hold our animatronic vampire in our Halloween "crypt". It looked cool with the spider webs web sprayed all over it too and red lighting! The Satin looked more real than expected but the over all coffin was a little flimsier than expected. What do you expect for the price though? At least it is easy to store and reuse from year to year if you treat it well. You can always cover with satin if you get a tear.

Coffin looks great, although the red is more burgandy than "blood red" as pictured. The shape and size is great but it IS flimsy...2 pieces of cardboard are included to stiffen the ends, but I'm going to have to add more to each side or use lightweight wood so it can keep it's shape. Good news is that there's a zipper all around so something can be added. I'll use it propped upright on an end , displayed at the top of my stairs so it it"s seen from Foyer downstairs.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Product was poor for the price. It would not stay open and would fall in on itself every few minutes.

Looks nice but poor construction
By Zombie head
This coffin looks great and actually has a good design to it[...]. Fabric material is nice, but "walls" are made out of corogated plastic which is about as durable/sturdy as cardboard. The long sides of the coffin boards are folded to fit into the box, which permanently creases the board and makes it impossible for it to hold the correct shape. I will be replacing all the boards with something sturdier, as thankfully the material just zips off and the boards can be easily replaced. While I still like the looks of it, I do not feel it is worth the price tag as is.

A little disappointing
from KENT, WA
I wanted to use this to lean against the wall on my front porch for Dracula's Castle, but because it folds up it's not sturdy enough to just stand up. I need to figure a way to firm up the sides for the Halloween season. The back is just a piece of material and the inside red liner didn't look the same to me from the picture. It's a cheap satin type material. too much money for this item.
