The Halloween Head-Scratcher

Who loves themed quizzes? Lauren loves themed quizzes. And this year please enjoy my inaugural offering, with some Harry Potter specific questions and some more general, slightly ghoulish, answers to uncover.

[Image: tumblr_inline_owleyuSjBQ1qeql0c_540.gif]

Task 1) Solve the clues and find the missing letters.
Task 2) Descramble the letters to find the name of one of the finest horror films of all time.
Task 3) Send your answer to @Elladora Black
Task 4) Sit back and wait to feel validated...except you'll have to wait till Halloween night for me to reveal the winners who will get to bask in the glory of victory.

You have until midnight on the 31st October and you only get one guess! Good luck :D

Erm... so what's the prize Lauren?

What, you want something other than the smug feeling of having cracked the code before others? Fineeeeee:

  5. Complete the sequence: Dursley - Dursley - Potter - Riddle - Potter - Chorley - ?? [LAST LETTER]
  6. In the 19th century you were most likely to find a working class woman employed as a _____. [SECOND LETTER] (Hint: The word you need is the catch-all term...)

  20. A HELPFUL CLUE: A man associated with the film title I'm looking for was born in our IC year. The LAST LETTER of his surname might be useful to you ;)

(NB: Please note that though there are twenty questions there are only nineteen letters in the answer so it's up to you to wheedle out the red herring. Thought you ought to know...)

  6. SERVANT.
  7. FAWKES.
  8. ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY SIX.
  9. SPIDERS.
  10. SKEETER. (Named animagi in order of when we find out about them.)
  11. CENTAUR. (The Centaur Liaison Office has never been used by any centaur so to be sent there, in department lore, means you're surplus to requirements and will soon be sacked.)

  14. VABLATSKY.
  15. EXPERIMENTATION.
