My first independent invention, based on some of the ideas behind the FCG and a couple tricks up my sleeve, I have been able to create a mechanical creature that is surprisingly robust and devilishly amazing.

While slightly more complex than a FCG and possibly more expensive, this animated corpse is a treat that no yard haunt should be without…

While there are some photos of the construction process on this page, I have devised a few improvements and changes that I intend to implement. Some of these improvements consist of a re-structuring of the frame and improvements to the physical setup, sound level, and ease of storage. At this time these designs should be considered BETA and are only included so that the more ambitious can attempt constructing their own.

Upon completion of the rebuild I will post instructions and revised plans, in the mean time you can watch this swanky video!


Here are images of the construction, for those who feel up to constructing this prop.
