Move over creepy Halloween candy bowl with the grabby monster hand. Harry Potter fans planning early for Halloween (or a random Potter party) can now pick up a prop that will really give them a hand.
This delightfully creepy prop looks like a dusty book of spells someone dug out of the Chamber of Secrets. Thanks to batteries and a magnet, the feather quill busily sketches out a new creepy curse, while the book itself glows, shrieks, moans and makes the sound of shattering glass. It's $35 (about £26, AU$46) from Grandin Road, which also sells eerie eyeball orbs, creepy walking hands that could go on a date with Thing from "The Addams Family," and much more.
And if the ghosts that haunt your house are a little more modern, check out this animated haunted typewriter, which repeatedly types H-E-L-P.
