Yesterday, we had a family movie day and our son decided he wanted to watch a “scary movie”.  I’ve never really been a horror movie person, but when your kid asks, you oblige.

While watching this movie, I decided it would make for a great art challenge, especially with movies like Malignant, Don’t Look Up, and Halloween Kills being released.  

As with every challenge, there are so many options for the art that can be submitted.

One Orlando based artist, Tim Edwards, has some amazing art that can use as inspiration! Just look at his interpretation of the Halloween movies!

He’s got some pretty creative paintings based on Friday the 13th, Saw, It, The Grudge and even The Ring movies.

I know there are people in my house that don’t like clowns, but even if you don’t like them either, you should head over to his Instagram page and see his rendition of Pennywise.

You won’t be sorry! 



Maybe you don’t want to be so “obvious” and you want to create your own sort of horror themed art.

It might encompass Asian Giant Hornets, or the television shows ’Only Murders in the Building’,  ’Lucifer’ or ‘Clickbait’. I mean, what’s more horrifying than Satan himself?

Or maybe Scientology or fentanyl are your horrors. I know that whatever your creative minds come up with will be amazing!

Whether you go the traditional route, or something completely off the wall, we are excited to see your submissions. 

Another idea is one that Her Blaze artist, Dhruvil Bhayani  came up with. He combines photography with 3D and comes up with some bone chilling pieces like the one below.

I think this would be a great submission to our horror challenge. What do you think?

He calls this series “Hallway” for obvious reasons. 

As one of the most amazing, unique artists ever, Edgar Allen Poe, said, “believe nothing you hear, and only half of what you hear.”

The series “Hallway” paired with Poe’s statement is spine chilling for sure. 



While you are pondering how to make Horror themed art, you can also think about FinanceBuzz, the finance company that is offering people $1,300 to watch 13 scary movies in October, as a way of researching how the budget of the film impacts the end result.

You can apply to participate at CNN.

Before you apply, be sure to head over to Her Blaze  for instructions on sending us your horror themed art.

I don’t know about you, but I think 13 horror movies and a horror themed art piece sounds like a great way to start the fall season. 

Besides submitting your art to our weekly challenge, we also want your opinion on horror films.

When someone watches scary movies,  their heart rate, blood pressure and respiration increases. After the film is over, this physiological arousal lingers. 

Not shockingly, adrenaline junkies tend to enjoy being scared while watching movies. Do you think horror themed art will have the same effect?

Comment below and tell us what you think!
