So the whole point of this lie detector is that you emotionally manipulate the victim and convince them that supernatural entities will punish them for their sins unless they confess? I miss when psychology was interesting.

Honestly I think that the quality of the construction was the largest issue with it. Still not saying it is a a good concept but I do think it could be greatly improved if it didn't look like a tacky Halloween decoration.

Well, to be fair , the test was poorly made with bias from the tester before even them entering in it. This is just a funny video which proves nothing. I suppose the real effectiveness would increase drastically from the ambiance : -in a police station -with real interrogation -sheer intimidation -the lack of visual and sensual feedback (it's just a skeleton not a human )

Its a bad lie detector yes ,BUT considering 1927 it would be effective in getting a confesion ,especialy if it was done better than just a black box with a skeleton. Now days you would have to go to some very extremes to produce enough fear as to make people confess anything .

Well, what if instead of revealing a skeleton the box remained dark. The person interviewing the suspect could hint/suggest that if they don’t spill something will happen. Keep the box quiet and pitch dark. All the participants in this vid even said they were most scared BEFORE the skeleton. I think using the fear of the unknown to squeeze a confession out of people might work better than any lie detector we have now.
