Axe-Wielding Killer (and a Door) Can Be Yours for $3500

by Paul Strauss

Halloween may still be over a month away, but it’s never too early to start figuring out how you’re going to scare the crap out of trick-or-treaters, right?

Well, if you’ve got $3500 to spare, have I got something for you! This animatronic door is one of the best scares I’ve seen in a while, and there’s one for sale right now over on Etsy.


As you can see from the photo above, this door has a nasty surprise hidden inside of it. Here, watch the video and you’ll see what I mean:

Nice effect, eh? Especially that part when it looks like the axe is chopping through the door, right? The effect is achieved with a 22-inch LCD monitor, along with a special DVD from Hi-Rez Designs which has DTMF tracks which cue the pneumatics behind the door at just the right time. They even offer up build instructions for customers who want to build one for themselves.

While you could try and build your own door, it’s probably way easier to pick up this one that’s already built over on Etsy, from the appropriately named “999deadpatricia”. And if you don’t have $3500 to spare, you could always just pick up the DVD, and just play that on a monitor (without the pneumatics).

I so want to replace my front door with this for Halloween this year.
