Nice that's awesome. I need to find out how you get the motors set up for something like that. I'd love to have one for my haunt...

Nice job! The corpse does look very creepy!
Any photos or videos of the mechanism that makes him rise?
I dont hear a compressor so I'm thinking its not pneumatic?

Yes he is indeed pneumatic. I built the basic coffin pop up rig that is found here
Halloween

I used the mac valve for the air wich is way better than the sprinkler valve and only cost $11. I dont have a video of the bare rig only some still pics.This year i am going to make a nice video of all my props and how they all work. The zombie was made from a head and hands from death studios. He does operate very quietly. Since this video was made i have upgraded his sound system to a 50 watt guitar amp and he really kicks now. I also added a bleed valve to the exhaust port on the mac valve to control how fast he resets.

Thanks for the additional pics. I like you new zombie much better than the old one :)

We are making a pneumatic pop up in a coffin for our funeral theme this year. Hubby's done other pneumatic pop ups without a problem (well except for a flying head once in a while during the test phase lol) but he's always interested in how other people do it and I'm sure he'll want to check our your new valve.
