Funny story behind this build:
I whipped up a similar looking trap over the course of 3 days last winter. It rolled and had the same functioning lights, but when I showed it to my family, the first thing they said was "what, the doors don't open?"
So I immediately scrapped that version and began the long and tedious process of finding a way to make the doors open and close (I am not mechanically minded in the least). 3 months later and this is what I came up with. While I might some day find a way to attach it to a wire/pedal like the movie, I kind of like this wireless alternative. I can roll it across a room and make it go with a Power Functions remote. The clear tiles on the back are to let the IR beam hit the receiver.
I used plans from gbfans.com as a reference. Unfortunately, the cartridge does not slide out... for now
Oh, and one last piece of advice: Don't look directly into the trap!

Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws.

"Hello beloved family, look at this awesome toy I built!"
Family: "Pffft! The doors don't even open!"
Sorry for the generic praise, but it looks like you know what you're doing already, good job. :)

Fantastic work Maegnus! It looks so realistic you can hardly tell that it's LEGO.

When I see some MOCs they make me think, "Wow, that is one I would like to make a reproduction of".
Your MOC is just another example of that. Very good details, and good recemblance.
I like the idea of having it remote controlled instead of the clutch thing they do in the movie.
But I can totally see why you want to add that for the more "real" look.
