Home Depot has quietly been elevating their Halloween animatronic game in recent years. After blowing everyone away last year with their headless horseman prop that everyone is ripping off this year, they’ve one upped themselves this year with a solid lineup of clowns and other terrifying animatronics. One of the ones that caught my eye recently was the Animated LED Cemetery Statue from Home Accents.
If you haven’t seen the Cemetery Statue in action, please check out the video below.
When triggered the motion activated prop suddenly comes to life and says several different phrases including, “Your time is running out! Ha ha ha ha ha…”
Standing at seven feet tall the Cemetery Statue is a large prop and will really standout in your graveyard. I have a graveyard each year and I don’t really have any large props in the scene. It’s typically some headstones and some groundbreaker that don’t really add much excitement. I think by placing the Cemetery Statue in the middle of your cemetery you can really make the scene pop and draw a lot of attention to the huge talking statue.
At $149.99 the Cemetery Statue is a mid-range prop and won’t really break the bank should you add him to your collection. However, as you already know, Home Depot is just dying to get rid of their Halloween merchandise as soon as possible and will start marking down their animated props in September. If you can be patient you might be able to pick up the Cemetery Statue for $20 or so. But, keep in mind, the longer you wait, the better the chance is that someone swoops in and grabs him.
There is a lot of really cool stuff this year if you love Halloween props. Be sure to check out our Animatronic Halloween Store to see what’s new for 2020!
