Hot Halloween Horrors

By Cindy McNicholl

(KARE) - Walking into a Halloween costume store may be a shocking experience for some if they haven't been to one in a while.

A motion activated prop called "Zombie Babies Chewie", is turning heads at some stores.

Some argue it's too gory, but others say it's just in the spirit of the holiday.

Spirit Halloween recently opened in St. Paul, Minnesota and they say that most customers find the zombie collection funny and entertaining.

"I love them, they're super scary," Customer Katia Dragotis said. "We're putting them in front of our house."

"I think for little kids it might be too much," Caleagh Larson said.

The zombies run between $30 and $60.

One man and his kids saw the zombie in action eating a limb and didn't find the display offensive.

"My kids came right over to this. They definitely had to take a good look at the zombie babies."

Some people have been offended, but then again, some argue that Halloween season permits that sort of sale item, as new ideas continue pushing the envelope year after year.

"So far, I'm getting great reactions," Manager Dylan Hatch said.

The National Retail Federation predicts that Americans will open their wallets this Halloween.

They say the average person will spend $66 for Halloween this year, similar to 2008.
