We've been a bit quiet here in Knockpixel Alley, so I reckon it's about time for us to shake the rust off our chains and liven things up with a few SCREAMS. That's right! It's a new horrific Hallowe'en challenge!
This year's challenge is to take Harry and his friends -- or enemies, acquaintances, even people who were *gasp* ~dead before he was born~ if you're feeling brave -- and put them into a classic horror movie setting. Maybe there's a slasher loose at Hogwarts or the trio is being beset by supernatural beasties. Zombies might be taking over the wizarding world! Or perhaps a more sinister haunting is afoot than the usual wizarding fare? There's a whole beautiful, trope-r-ifc genre to bend to your twisted will!
All entries must be within MNFF standard size limits (500px by 300px maximum).
Points will be awarded as follows:
- 05 participation points for your first entry
- 02 participation points for all subsequent entries
- 05 points for second place
- 10 points for first place
The following information should be included in your post:
Entries will be judged on seamlessness of blending, composition, and originality. Depending on how many BA members participate, separate awards for novices and old-hands may be awarded. Please direct all questions to the Ask a Pixie thread.

This challenge is open to everyone on the boards, so please do jump in! Even if you've never attempted a graphic in your life. After all, if you can't have a new beginning in the afterlife, then when can you have one?
This challenge will close in two weeks on (when else?) Thursday, October 31.
