“Scary Potter” Art Project Turns ‘Harry Potter’ Books into Horror Posters

I was ripped from my body… but still, I was alive.”

There’s a darkness to J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter stories, seven of which have been released to date, and artist Dylan Pierpont has brought it front and center for an art series he has appropriately dubbed “Scary Potter.

The art turns each Harry Potter book into a decidedly dark and sinister horror movie poster, bringing out the scary side of Rowling’s family-friendly stories.

A while back I was thinking about a few of the stories and characters that had a big influence on me growing up. And while Harry Potter was by far and away the most age appropriate of the group, I couldn’t help but think about how dark some the themes became over the course of the series,” Pierpont explained on his Facebook page. “Scary Potter was born out of a love for every dark and thematic thread woven throughout the HP series.”

    Chamber of Secrets was basically a horror movie to me as a kid, scared the shit out of me

    Oh wow. This is amazing. There is some seriously dark moments in the books that didn’t translate to the movies at all. It is great to see this kind of take on Potter.

    • Yes there were, lol. Cheers!

    These are fantastic! I think Goblet of Fire might be my favorite. It’s absolutely beautiful. Reminds me of Giger.
