Dabble in these first Dark Arts images from London's Harry Potter Studio Tour

Just in time for Halloween, the Warner Brothers Studio Tour in London is dedicating space to a deadly new guest experience for their Magical World of Harry Potter tour, centering around horcruxes, horrific mummified hands, magical skulls and arcane wizarding artifacts infused with the black residue of Voldemort and his superbad Death Eater brethren.  

This elaborate Dark Arts section will be the first permanent addition to the immensely popular Harry Potter film exhibits since opening in March of 2012 and is teeming with eerie props, rare costumes, diabolical sets and unique special effects meant to enhance the scarier realms of the entire eight-movie Harry Potter saga.  

From Oct. 17 to Nov. 3, Warner Brothers ratchets up the spooky element for the holiday season with the memorable Halloween feast from the first film on display in Hogwart's Hall and roving Death Eaters haunting Diagon Alley.

One of the grand showpieces will be the impressive, full-sized Malfoy Manor set from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, complete with a suffering Charity Burbage levitating over a massive dining hall table surrounded by evil Death Eaters and a hissing hand-painted Nagini snake model patterned after the exact screen-used original.

Here's more from Warner's official press release:

Officially launching on Tuesday, October 14th, this new section will also include a variety of never-before-seen props from Borgin and Burkes, the Knockturn Alley shop Harry accidentally stumbles into in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, such as the mysterious Hand of Glory and the Vanishing Cabinet.  A section of Dolores Umbridge's Ministry of Magic office, including her garish kitten plates, perfectly putrid pink costumes and desk will be on show as well as Defense Against The Dark Arts professor Remus Lupin's costumes, magical projector and gramophone.

So, fill a mug of pumpkin juice and check out these preview pics of Harry Potter's darkest corners.
