Not to be confused with the 2011 animatronic The Gatekeeper (2011).
The Gatekeeper (2020) is an animatronic sold online by Spirit Halloween for the 2020 Halloween season. It resembles a skeletal figure in a grey hood which held a lantern. When activated, the eyes of the animatronic and the lantern light up as the arm of the animatronic moves and one of four phrases can be heard.
Spirit Halloween's Description
"He has guarded the gates to the underworld since the dawn of time, his eternal post, his unyielding punishment for an unspeakable betrayal. A betrayal that was so evil even the demons of the underworld do not welcome his unnatural presence. Instead, the Gatekeeper must roam the outskirts of the necropolis forced to ferry the damned into their eternal unresting place."
"This Gatekeeper Animatronic is sure to light the way this Halloween with his light up eyes, light up lantern, and creepy side to side movement of his left hand."
