Things that go bump in the night are scary - so is this Lurching Vampire animated prop! This evil creature stands over five feet tall and is waiting to pounce. His period attire and medallion necklace along with his carefully crafted features add to the drama. When activated by sound or motion he lurches forward with eyes alight and mouth moving to utter scary sounds. Creepy, cool and clever, all in one!

Sofar so good
from Schiller Park, IL
About Me Budget Shopper
This is my first day with lurching vampire. I already thing it is GREAT!!!! It lurches forward to scare kids or adults! Perfect jump scare especially if you stand it up in a coffin that is standing up. When they walk past it, it will lurch out of the coffin! Its also good without a coffin! His black eyelids open up opening his eyes, his eyes light up red, he lurches forward and makes sounds such as shouting "BRAHH (evil laughing)."

This is a follow up to my review last year. Our first vampire did stop working, but I called the company who were very nice and immediately sent us a new motor and now he works just fine. Fine company! Scary vampire! (even gets the older trick or treaters every time)

3 rd season with this still works great. Did make a custome large foot pad. So I don't know how the sensor works.
from Bossier City, LA
Last year I saw it on the internet and thought it looked ok. Went to the store and saw it at which time I forgot what it was supposed to do so I stepped on the action pad. When it started up its eyes lit up and it started talking during which time I thought to myself "is this it" then in leaped at me and I SCREAMED causing everyone around to laugh. Of course I bought it. I even put it infront of the door. I would stand behind the door when I opened it for trick or treators. It worked so well I had to chase down one girl that ran away screaming to give her her candy.

Powerfully SCARY !!!
By Bird Leggs
from Littleton, CO
I use many scary props for Hallowe'en that guide trick-or-treaters towards their treats. This one is so scary I must "hide" it from the very young children by placing it out of their paths. We have busloads of families who visit my "spook house", so we want it to be fun, not fateful fright.
This will be a big hit on Halloween. It is very scary and "jumps right out at you" Easy to assemble and great sound! Can't WaitIt might even be a little too spooky for the younger trick or treaters.

Great prop, worth the money!
Very happy with my Lurching Vampire. Works great with a footpad or "Try Me" button for well-timed scares. The motion is very sudden and realistic, but not so dramatic that it might hit anyone -- fun AND safe. My only suggestion is that you weigh down its base a bit before operating, or you might notice him scooting forward as he's used repeatedly.
this is a blast!!!!!!

Great Mate for the Midnight Countess
By LT Scare
from So Cal - Foothill Ranch
Last year the Countess was lonely. Lurch has not only helped her speak up more often, he's caused more than one TOT to run screaming from the haunt. We set him up with a foot pad so that as the TOTs leave the front door with a slightly heavier candy bag, they trigger Lurch to come straight for them, bumping into the Countess's arm and setting her off too. They are a truely surprising couple.
Best Prop Ever!
from Seattle, WA
Outstanding scary prop. Placed by our front door on Halloween. Made more than a few kids scream when he lurched. They all thought he was pretty cool. Pretty happy with him overall.
from Fort Smith, AR
This was the biggest hit of our Halloween decorations this year. People went crazy for our vampire and kept coming back for more.
from South Salem, NY

Best Decoration EVER
By The tin man
from San jose, CA
This thing scared my whole family. Really great and Its huge to. About six feet
from Richwood, TX
I got this guy a week ago and have already scared many people with him, they dont expect him to lurch forward. The only negative I have is with the store I bought him at. They could not get the display to work (if they had read the instructions it tells what to do if it stops working in the maner it did) and told me it did things he really doesnt do. Good price for the effect he will give.
Scary as can be!
from Niagara Falls, NY
We used this in our yearly Home Haunt. It scared someone every time they walked by!
So far so good
By The dad who buys Way 2 early!
We are hoping the gears hold out for some good use over the next few years. Having a few laughs before Halloween right now. I'll follow up later if issues arise.
The Lurching Vampire is GREAT!

About Me Halloween Lover, Off-beat
I put him in the hall and used a foot-pad, where he could jump at people as they came in. He was one of the most popular decorations I had last year. Everyone wanted a picture with him.
AWESOME LURCHING VAMPIRE SCAREY
By THE QUEEN
from Central Northern Arizona
He stands next to my table in the house until Halloween Night - too much rain for outside permanently - He scares the heck out of ya - even though you know it is coming! Love it!
Good for a startle
from Lynchburg, Va
This thing scared the heck out of my son as we were walking into the store. He never saw the lurching coming,and it's big and loud.
from San Jose, CA
Got in 2011, still going strong today!
By crazy Halloween dude
from no adress available, sp
it's petty cool but you have to be careful he can break easy, and he's hard to setup, over-all love this prop it's a great buy.
Fun to use
from Moorhead, Mn
Mine did not work after it was put together and the local Spirit store said the motor was put together wrong where it was made and gave me a new one that works fine. Weighted nicely so it maintains it's position. Will work fine in our haunted garage we do halloween night.

impressive, but stopped working fast
By Halloween is the greatest holiday ever!
I loved this vampire when we first got it. The lurching movement is very effective and scary. But I had to move him a foot from my door and he stopped working 20 minutes into Hallloween night. Upon further discovery one of the gears had broken inside him when I moved him. I should have been warned when the one at the store was broken in the same way, but I bought him (a new vampire) anyway. He looks great, just be very gentle with him. If anyone has any ideas where to get gears for him, I would love to know it.
Great Effect, but doesn't last!
By Frequent Spirit Consumer
from Pittsburgh, PA
Went to use Dracula for first time ever for Halloween Party. Worked great and had spooky effect for guests early on in evening. However, by end of night, did not work at all. Tried everything to get back on. Very disappointing! All that money to use for 4-5 hours. Unique prop when worked. Cheaply constructed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
