What happens when you take a walk through the cemetery after dark - the caretaker appears to run you off. This Creepy Caretaker Animated Prop is just the thing to strike fear in the hearts of guests! The sound activated caretaker rises above his tombstone with glowing eyes as his lantern lights and his mouth moves to utter scary warnings and spooky Halloween sounds. Fantastic!

Best One Out There! Legit

About Me Midrange Shopper
There are a lot of graveyard props like these. THIS IS THE BEST CHOICE. His sayings are VERY scary and it is the best quality looking piece. The balance of the tombstone is a little tricky and flimsy but you cannot beat his voice and mouth movements. GREAT BUY VERY SATISFIED
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Budget Shopper
I really like him. I have been building my front yard grave yard since middle school. (I am not in college) and he was a perfect addition. I put him close to the door and put the pad under the ground so he pops up when stepped on. A crowd pleaser.
Super in the graveyard!

My guests,34 of them loved this both years. Yes we"ve had him 2 years now and he"s one of our main haunts for our yard.

LOVE THIS PROP, HE IS QUITE THE WORDSMITH ONLY THING I DIDN'T LIKE IS, I THOUGHT THE TOMBSTONE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE OF HARDER PLASTIC NOT FOAMBOARD
Creepy! Yes he was!!!
from Palm Springs, CA
I have bought a lot of Halloween animatronics, mostly witches. My house theme is animatronic witches and airblown black cats. But we expanded this year to include spiders and a graveyard. This guy was a perfect edition. He was sufficiently loud, he popped up and scared kids. It was great. The only bad part is putting the tombstone together because it is Styrofoam. But it worked and he did look and work great.
this is one of my favorites
watch your step because you dont want to cross the path of this freaky fella. the creepy caretaker quietly rises behinde his tombstone with his lantern flikering mouth moving sand eves lighting up. dont think twice about buying this prop. its my favorite spirit prop i own.
i would by this again and again

WASN'T HAPPY THAT SHIPPING ECONOMY COST MORE THEN THE 20% OFF COUPON I HAD BECAUSE STORES WE OUT OF THEM , OTHER THEN THAT IT'S AWESOME
it was one of the best props
from newton mass
i think the creepy caretaker is very big but when i got it it did not come with a tombstone so i sent it back and got a new one.
Great looks, reminded us of someone we know, so now he we call him by Marty. The lights are good & the voice is loud & clear, but the tombstone is a bit fragile, it could be heavier because wind is definitely going to be a factor, also should have been in one piece, don't know why they split it in two & then make you re-attach it with enclosed spikes. If bad weather I am using it inside,know it will be a winner.

The Creepy Caretaker is a wonderful addition to my graveyard/cemetery. It was easy to set up and I had it working in no time. My dogs barked at it when it was in operation. It's definitely a good buy! Happy Haunting!
Great animated prop for the price

this prop is cool! its loud and bright! for 100.00 this thing is awesome!
Was Everything I Expected
The Creepy Caretaker was easy to assemble and was up and running within 30 minutes. It's scary enough that it made my dogs bark at it! It will work perfectly in my graveyard/cemetary that I set up for every Halloween! Definitely a good buy.
OMG!!!!! this thing is amazing.
from lake city fl
i have not used it outside yet but this is so creepy i can see where the tombstone falling over could be an issue but nothing that cant be easily fixed with a sand bag type thing. putting it together was very easy and quick. i do wish it came with the power instead of battery but that is also a easy thing to fix still worth the money i have 2 sets of rechargeable batteries i use in my camera so i will just remove them at night and charge them i will prob wind up buying an adapter also still im so glad i ordered it happy hauntings

First received this product, it had a few issues. I contacted Spirit and they immediately corrected the problem. Spirit has the best customer service I have experienced in a long time. I will buy most of my Halloween products from Spirit. The prop they sent me the second time is awesome and works great..can't wait for Halloween.

By Cabot's Trail of Terror
from Cabot, Pennsylvania
This animatronic is great! His voice is so menacing and evil. His eyes and lantern light up, and a nice feature about the Caretaker is the blue lighting hidden behind the tombstone to illuminate him. He rises to a great height! His mouth movements and facial detail make him look very realistic. The arm that connects to the tombstone may fall off due to the tape not sticking firmly, but that can be fixed easily. When he lowers down (laughing demonically), the motor is loud. As long as you have music/sounds playing at your haunt, it won't be noticeable.I love the Creepy Caretaker - he looks and sounds so real! He also works on the footpad!
This caretaker is super scary!

About Me Classic, Conservative
This awesome animated prop fits in perfectly with our graveyard decor we put outside of our haunted house. The face makes it seem realistic and the mouth moves in synch to the voice, and I like that ALOT! The only problem I have with it is that it falls over easily and is only three feet tall standing up, but still a great prop. congratulations spirithalloween.com you've got yourself a happy customer!
Nice looking, nice action just one issue
I really like this prop and what it does it does well. Good action, nice design. The only issue I have with it is the volume of the voice could be louder. It was a bit low for my needs but it is still a great prop. Just need to pump up the volume!
from Greensboro NC
I bought this to use in my front yard decorating and it is a very cool piece. I thought that having it outside that the motion detector wouldn't work since no one goes by it, but with loud sounds and even the cars going by sets it off which is perfect. He looks very creepy and has built in lights that help set him off and the creepy sayings are good. Unfortunately I can't give it 5 stars since his sound went out within a week of using him. He still looks creepy even without the sound and I think its just a loose wire. Also I recommend bringing him in from rain to maintain him working good
A very good buy when on special.
By The pumpkin king
from Louisville, KY
A very unique item to add to my display this year. Try to buy it when on special or with free shipping. Multiple movements, which is great. The face and especially the eyes lack some realism. I usually put my own mask over these faces to cover up the bright glowing eyes. The big test yet to come is how well it holds up season to season.

Nice Prop, More Portable
By Michael V.
from Carlsbad, CA
Just received from another vendor by mistake, but decided to keep. Good graveyard addition, solid base, loud sound and decent voiceover and material. Because this one runs on batteries it's much more flexible as to placement. Would be sneakier if the cheap plastic hand wasn't always visible. Had to order U shaped ground stakes to hold tombstone down as it's too light like most to stay up in a breeze. But simple remedy. One of several similar props available but still nice.
