A new #1 Best Seller, the Yelling Animatronics Skeleton Prisoner in Cage is intended to scare. Made by Colplay, the animatronic skeleton with glowing red eyes and dressed in black and white attire is programmed with motion and light sensors. When alerted, the ghost is activated to glow and stick out his head while blaring, "LET ME OUT!," among other expressions. The Halloween prop sits in a jail-like cage and measures about 9 inches in length by 11 inches in height and 4 inches in width. Made of quality plastic, fabric, and electronics, the tormented ghost requires three AA batteries to function, which are not included.

Presently priced at $25.99, the outspoken piece comes with two strings (30-inches long each) that are intended for hanging in a tree, entrance, or another desired space. Amazon customers who have purchased the creepy prisoner rave about the price, quality, size, and both its funny and terrifying effects.

Mainly intended for interior use, Amazon recommends only using the electronic candles in covered outdoor spaces like a porch or patio. Many customers might hang them from ceilings, chandeliers, or awnings, although some materials may work better than others.

It's also important to note that the candles require two AA batteries, which are not included with purchase.
