If you’re not into cutesy Halloween decorations like candy corn trees and little Disney Halloween villages, you might want to consider shopping at Spirit Halloween this year. The chain is celebrating its 40th anniversary by scaring up some big frights.

Kicking off Spirit Halloween’s 2023 collection is a life-size animatronic Leatherface from “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” series. Wearing the “Pretty Woman Mask” from the films, he stands 6 feet tall. He also moves 360 degrees at the waist, makes grunting noises and comes with a chainsaw that makes realistic sounds. (You can watch a video of it in action on Spirit Halloween’s website.)

Priced at $349.99, the motion-activated Leatherface is marked as oversized, so Spirit Halloween will charge an additional shipping fee for this item.

Other items in the collection include Lil Jack Carver, an animatronic scarecrow priced at $169.99, and Eternal Rest, a spooky headstone that cries while the head literally spins around, for $139.99. Or, get a 7.9-foot Stilts animatronic that’s basically the spookiest clown you’ve ever seen.

At nearly 8 feet tall, the Stilts animatronic will tower over other decorations in your yard. It features a side-to-side moving torso with a head that moves 360 degrees. It also includes “bone-crunching sounds,” laughter and circus music.
