The Unborn

The Crawlspace Haunter has created one of the coolest and creepiest looking props that I’ve laid my eyes on.  It’s based on a creature from the film The Unborn.  It turned out great and its the kind of prop that is guaranteed to give people nightmares.  Its made with a pvc frame that’s laid out as if you were building an animals skeleton.

The pvc that makes up the backbone was heated up to give it a bit of a curve.  The rest is a mixture of cardboard, tissue, and paper mache to give it some body.


Items needed to complete this include:

  • 1/2″ or 3/4″ PVC (amount to be determined by your build size)
  • 4 – 90 degree pvc
  • 4 – 45 degree pvc
  • 1 – cross connector pvc fitting
  • 1 – pvc T fitting
  • Skull
  • Cardboard
  • Tissue
  • Paper mache
  • Foam pipe insulation
  • Wire

I’m honestly not sure which photo creeps me out more, the night shot, or the daytime shot!
