Dressed in their iconic clothing, these life-like characters make chilling movements and sound effects.

Programmed with sound and motion activation, these amazing life-size characters (MSRP $239.00 each) add a spine-tingling touch to a haunted evening with guests or trick-or-treaters. Each collapses for easy, end-of-season storage.

Also available is a 2.1-ft life-size animated Chucky in overalls and a striped sweater. With choppy red hair and a slashed face, Chucky speaks spooky phrases as he rolls around and raises his knife.

The collection also includes haunting musical light strings and pathway stakes featuring Halloween II’s Michael MyersA Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger, and Friday the 13‘s Jason Voorhees.

More scares await with creepy characters straight out of your nightmares. Any sound or movement activates the 7-ft Reaper with Hourglass Animatronic (MSRP $199.00). Its lifeless face lights up green with red flashing eyes, turns at the waist and speaks taunting phrases to anyone passing by.

Creeping around the corner is a 5-ft animated Crouching Grave Digger (MSRP $159.00) with a shovel. Dressed in earthy tones and crouched in a digging position, this possessed grave digger speaks spooky phrases and raises his head to reveal flashing red eyes.

Complete the look with a 4.3-ft long Crawling Zombie dressed in tattered clothing. Placed on a floor or ground surface, he adds the perfect spooky surprise with blacked out, flashing red eyes and groaning sounds.

Also standing six feet tall, the new Jason Voorhees animatronic is actually officially licensed from the 2009 Friday the 13th remake, featuring right arm up and down movement, as he holds his machete. The hockey mask is attached to the head with a few staples, which can be removed to reveal a molded deformed Jason face that was originally part of the release but was eventually not approved. I am told that the face is still there, however, it does not have a detailed paint job. Its sound effects include Mrs. Voorhees’ infamous “ki ki ki, ma ma ma”, and even her voice saying, “Jason, Mother is talking to you”.
