Movie Madness

It's Macabre Monday over at Haunted Design House
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that takes it's inspiration from a favorite bit of celluloid.
All types of films can be twisted into a darker interpretation.
You don't have to be a fan of scary or suggestive movies to play along.
Just keep in mind that we are going for creepy, scary, dark, gothic, or
Halloweenie feel.
 We are sponsored this week by
Tracey has some wonderful images by some really talented artists
available in her shop. She has a very diverse selection of images to choose from.
Spesch has generously offered up 3 free images of choice to each of the
chosen ones (Gruesome Twosome) from this week's challenge.
I chose the Zombie Mad Hatter for my Alice In Wonderland themed card. Isn't he a cutie?
The image was coloured with promarkers before masking off so that I could stamp a crackle background.

A teapot and cups on a small piece of chain with my "Cheshire Cat"after mounting on a bright green mat.
Paper hunting - I knew what I wanted - just needed to find it in my stash. From a gift received when I first started making cards so I don't know the origin but has been used sparingly since. Mounted on orange mats together with an embossed piece of black/green coredinations. Then onto a darker green base BP and finally a black edged card base. 
The sentiment is computer generated. For those that can't see it "We're having a Party. Some of you is invited"
Your turn peeps to stun us with your interpretation of the film of your choice.

Don't forget the other Minions - they worked hard as well!
