With the temperatures outside still getting higher, the minds behind Spirit Halloween are also heating up, as they aim to deliver a number of unsettling and entertaining props and animatronics to get Halloween fans in the "spirit" of the spooky season. Keeping in the tradition of previous years, Spirit will unleash not only various original characters and creations, but will also offer officially licensed and beloved figures from all corners of the horror genre. This year will include animatronics honoring "Shorty" from the cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space as well as the iconic "Ghostface" from the Scream franchise. Check out a trailer of the creepy figures above.
Joining Shorty and Ghostface in the "Graveyard Shift" of animatronics will be characters like Wacky Mole, Mr. Howle, Buzzsaw, Henry Hustle, Night Stalker, and Beetlejuice.
You can head to Spirit Halloween's official website to see their full roster of characters.
The 5-foot Shorty animatronic is described as follows:
- After a strange glowing object from space crashed down onto Earth just outside of Crescent Cove, the evil clownish aliens known as the "Klowns" emerged to have their twisted fun and wreak havoc this Halloween. Leaving remains of popcorn and cotton candy cocoons, these Killer Klowns have plenty of tricks up their sleeves. Shorty is one of the wildest of the bunch with his bright yellow clown suit, wacky green hair, and his creepy red nose and smile. Equipped with a cotton candy ray gun and a giant boxing glove, he'll have no problem knocking you silly! Now Shorty and his fellow Killer Klowns roam the streets in search of volunteers for their next very special performance! Once you get a ticket to this Killer Klown circus, there's no guarantee you'll make it out alive.
- You'll need to watch your back this Halloween once Shorty comes to life with his swaying head movement and up and down moving arms. Once you hear him play his intergalactic sounds, and you add his removable boxing glove, he'll be ready for some killer clown action!
The 5.4-foot Ghostface is described as follows:
- Better watch your back when Ghostface is in town… and don't even think about picking up that telephone. The master of stalking prey loves to manipulate his victims before sneaking up and landing a deadly strike with his hunting knife. His motivation is unclear as you never know who could be donning the Ghostface mask next! He lurks and hides in the shadows with his black robe and moves as swiftly as the cold wind as he prepares to go on his next killing spree.
Be careful where you run this Halloween because you never know when this Ghostface animatronic will pop out from behind a corner and give you a terrifying jump scare. This animatronic pops out from both the left and right making him perfect to place anywhere in your home!
