Halloween is almost here. You know what that means, right? Zombie, zombies and more zombies! This year Spirit Halloween has a new zombie prop out and it’s not like other zombie animatronics they’ve done in previous years. If you haven’t yet seen Tortured Torso, here he is in all his glory.
No one knows how Tom got to the tree that he’s been tied to for some time now, bu… [More]
I have to be upfront before we go any further, I’m not really a zombie guy. I watch the Walking Dead but I can’t seem to get excited about zombie animatronics for my home haunt in October. So when I first saw Tortured Torso online he wasn’t the top prop on my list. However, when I saw him in person in the store I was really impressed and immediately became intrigued at all the possibilities on where I could put him in my yard this October. Unlike other props you see online Tortured Torso’s price point is a very reasonable $129.99, so I didn’t have an excuse when it came to price.
When activated the prop begins to twitch and make moaning zombie-like sounds. The animatronic also begins flailing his head back and forth due to the extreme discomfort he is in.
After I put Tortured Torso together I asked my wife to come check him out. When she walked outside she smiled and said, “Oh, wow!”
Tortured Torso is pretty simple, but sometimes simple is good. I like the fact that he hangs from his wrists. This gives me options on where I can put him and how to use him. The blood stain on the bottom of his shirt is a very nice touch too. It’s almost like something came along and ripped the lower part of his body off. Whoever thought of that deserves a pat on the back.
When I saw the prop at my local Spirit Halloween someone had placed a beanie on his head and made him look even more realistic. I really thought it was a nice touch.
At $129.99 Tortured Torso is a fairly inexpensive prop compared to others Spirit Halloween has put out this year. Despite being cheaper, they didn’t cut any corners and it’s very much a high quality prop. I’m not a zombie guy but I definitely give Tortured Torso 5 out of 5 stars. If you are into zombie animatronics you definitely need to add him to your collection. Your friends and family will love him!
