CHALLENGE: Melloween

As Halloween is just around the corner, we want you to make something scary. Not just anything scary though, we want you to present something mundane or pleasant in a scary way. So for example, an evil grandma or a man-eating goldfish.

Try to be as imaginative as you possibly can - this means you should attempt to avoid common horror motifs such as evil dogs, creepy clowns or scary pumpkins etc...

Credit for the challenge idea goes to Cure.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Max 13.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

For somthing like this I figured everyone would be doing ghosts, ghouls, and monsters. I wanted to take a different rout, Pshycological fear. Heres a draft.

Havent Seen alot on this competition yet, but i thought i would show off my WIP as it is now.
Keep in mind: the animation does need to be smoothed out and some other things need editing i know, but i thought i'd check to make sure i am interpreting the theme correctly. My mundane item would be a touch screen cell phone with apps.




Edit: having trouble posting image...
Edit: GOT IT!

@Wootai - try uploading the image again using imgur.

edit: looks like you just fixed things up. Anyway, it seems to be heavily suffering from compression artefacts. Do you have a non compressed version of the image?

That's probably mostly from when I had to convert it from the 25 colors i had originally been working with to the 13 that the challenge allows. I have to now go in and re-work the colors and key frames to work with the limited pallet but i'm just trying to see if there are any critiques on the composition, or interpretation of theme.

I've found this on the Internet. It's not mine but i find it funny that it fits well with this challenge. Not sure if it's pixel art though.

@oreo I'm sorry but i am having such a hard time trying to figure out exactly what yours is. can someone help me out?
It looks like a tunnel entrance that is crying, or something else that is crying. I'm really not seeing the horror of it.

If I draw an octopus, will it count as something mundane? Probably not. Just wondering though. Because I'm drawing a scary octopus. Heh.
