Costco Is Selling a Giant Animatronic Spider With 8 Glowing Red Eyes, So, Um . . . Bye
Cue: Ron Weasley shrieking as he bolts away from Aragog in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. That was my immediate mental reaction when I came across a photo of this eight-legged beast of a Halloween decoration. At four feet tall and 13 feet wide, the Giant Mutant Animatronic Spider ($200) is 100 percent the stuff of my nightmares and bound to get a scare out of more than a few people on Halloween night. (You can't see my face right now, but just know I'm the human equivalent of the grimacing emoji.)
As if it wasn't terrifying enough to begin with, the prop also features eight glowing red LED eyes — which run on three AA batteries — and can make "realistic hissing sounds" that you control with the push of a button. At this point, I'm just grateful this creepy arachnid can't actually crawl around. Take a closer look at the chilling Halloween decoration ahead, if you dare.
