This reminds me I should pay my credit card before strangers come knocking :D
Good angle and pretty good, out of the box, idea. I wonder if it might have worked more drammatically by further boosting the difference in luminance between inside and outside. Perhaps by making the door and generally the inside considerably darker, or by taking a long exposure while shining a very strong light over the crack of the door, so you have spillage of light.
The overprocessed hands goes well with the idea of a not human creature, but for me it would probably be even more disturbing the contrast between that claws and a normal skin tone, auntie Polly's little secret kind of thing (but admittedly it would be difficult to balance things up so that would look convincing rather than halfcooked).

Good stuff Joshua !

Maybe a little overprocessed to enhance the effect but this is a brilliant shot and I trust we'll see it on font page. 10 My first 10 of the challenge.

The added hands makes for an interesting story line. The photo is good with the harsh lighting and high contrast to create the scene.
