Last week I asked Kotaku's image manipulation community to send an innocent holiday icon to hell. Since then I've been having nightmares involving rabbits. So yeah, probably a bad idea.

Some of you went with the classic shooter, Doom. Others took the Diablo or Silent Hill route. There was even a Flappy Bird entry in there, but of course I wound up going with an old film again, because dammit, Fahey. I guess dman247's entry simply outshone the rest. It's a shining example of image manipulation. IT'S FROM THE SHINING.

Let's hope tomorrow's 'Shop Contest features a topic less nightmare inducing. Maybe something out of this world. It may require a little digging. I am really bad at subtle hints.

In the meantime, let's see what sort of hell our featured readers put the Easter Bunny through this week.
