does it matter which neck massager you use...I have a homemedic one I need to start on, but I also see similar ones at the thrift stores for $5 a pop

I dont think it matters too much as the one i got was alot different than the one spooky sam had. Mine did not have plastic ball ends that i could get off easilly. The one i had was hard steel cups and i had a very hard time getting them off the rotor arms. I ground down the round cup inserts so that they fit tight in the pvc neck and arm and it gave my head a very cool turning motion with the movement. This prop was harder to build than i thought it would be because of the fact that there is so much variation in how you control the movement. I spent hours messing with it to get it the way i liked it.

I don't think so. I was at the thrift store and saw the Homedic one most people seem to be using for $10. But right next to it was this one: Homedics Shiatsu Neck & Shoulder Massager at HSN.com
for $5.
Being the.....frugal..person I am, I bought the $5 one.
I'll try and get some pictures this weekend. It has a 2 direction switch - basically forward and reverse- which can affect how the prop moves. I think its just the basic principle of the movement that is important.

Good Luck!

Ooh--I'd LOVE to have a Zombie prop that would massage my neck! LOL
Great looking prop! I really like the detail on the skull.

The movement is tricky.We fooled with ours for hours also.
