Spirit Halloween Unveils Its Complete Animatronics Lineup for 2024 | All Hallows Geek (2024)

Spirit Halloween has been teasing its 2024 Halloween animatronics lineup since earlier this month when it unveiled the names of all of the animatronics in this year’s “Carnevil” theme. So far, we have only gotten glimpses of the lineup, but on Thursday, Spirit fully revealed all 21 of this year’s animatronics and has even made some available for purchase.

“Halloween enthusiasts are upping their game when it comes to décor and they’re starting their quest for their favorite animatronics earlier than ever,” said Kym Sarkos, Executive Vice President at Spirit Halloween. “We are thrilled to introduce this year’s lineup, featuring fan-favorite characters equipped with innovative technology, and we can’t wait to see them come to life at incredible home haunts this fall.”

World Famous Entertainers

When Spirit announced this year’s lineup, the “World Famous Entertainers” category was home to horror icons that included Ghost Face, Art the Clown, and Michael Myers. Here’s your first look at the complete lineup:

Ghost Face – $279.99

Standing just over six feet tall, Ghost Face features a head-tilting motion and an arm that stabs and jabs his weapon in a frenzied motion. The animatronic comes with two interchangeable masks, an aged mask and a blood-spattered mask, and two weapons, a hunting knife and a machete. The animatronic features five different sayings from “Scream VI,” all voiced by Roger L. Jackson, the voice of Ghost Face in the “Scream” films.

Giant Death Ray

When Spirit Halloween listed “Giant Death Ray” as part of its 2024 lineup, I initially thought it was in reference to the release of the Mars Attacks ray gun they released in late April. Boy, was I wrong. Giant Death Ray is actually an enormous 10-foot alien animatronic. When activated, white LED lights illuminate the torso and move up to the alien’s arms. The animatronic also features servo motion technology inside its light-up head for realistic side-to-side movement. To add to the fear factor, the animatronic makes foreboding galactic noises.
