Matty trap easter egg or electronics glitch?

I just activated my trap for the first time in a while and got a damn fright.

On the second white light and judder the trap actually started screaming and started shaking wildly.
The scream actually sounded like a proper sound effect. Has this happened to anyone else? Scared the crap outta me.

Your trap is possessed. Set fire to it immediately to eradicate the spirit of the desolate one.

Really? Aw, great. Isn't there some sort of exorcism I can perform? :sigh:

I had someone look at it and apparently there was a piece of plastic lodged in there somewhere jamming the mechanism. I heard a rattle the day I bought it but just left it alone.

Still pretty cool effect though.

I've had this for almost 7 years. Just yesterday I noticed that if the batteries are low, when it's supposed to do that rattle, it won't rattle but you will hear this very weird howling moan.
