* Harry's in the library late at night and opens a book. It SCREAMS AT HIM! It's like a ''disembodied head is trying to escape from the book, wide-mouth yelling the entire time.'' And, if unintentionally, it serves to foreshadow another situation where [[spoiler: Harry encounters another face that's somewhere that isn't supposed to have a face.]] An auditory example of this trope is the incredibly creepy music that plays in the background of the "restricted section" library sequence. Try listening to that track of the film's score in a dark room...

* [[spoiler:Quirrell]] being burned alive from Harry's touch. His reaction at the flesh on his hand melting was bad enough, but then there is his scream of agony when Harry uses his newfound power on the guy's ''face.''
** For this troper, the most horrifying scene in the first movie occurred when [[NightmareFace Quirrel's face turned to crumbling stone in a nauseating-looking way]]- then Quirrel, as his ''entire body'' begins to turn to stone, [[ZombieGait lumbers and shuffles towards Harry like a zombie]] with his hand outreached, before collapsing onto the ground as a pile of dust. ''Brrr...''

* The scene near the beginning in which Dudley falls into the snake's enclosure as Aunt Petunia freaks out and Harry chuckles... but then, Harry notices [[AbusiveParents Uncle Vernon]] glowering down at him with a nasty DeathGlare of utter contempt, and all of a sudden, Harry's face looks stricken, as he imagines how he's going to be punished.

* In the backstory for the Ilvermorny school of witchcraft and wizardry, the protagonist Isolt comes across a family of wizards that was being attacked by a hidebehind, a monster that preys on human-like creatures. While people preying monsters aren't anything to bat an eye at as a dangerous encounter in the potterverse, the circumstance of the attack can be quite chilling. The main reason it got the jump on them is that they were on a trip and the father mistook it for a boggart. Imagine the scenario: you and your family want to go somewhere new and fun, so you go to a different continent for your trip. While there, you encounter something that is scary at worst, and is easily gotten rid of. You try what you think will work on a creature you think you have identified, [[OhCrap but it doesn't work. The creature isn't what you thought it was]], and it attacks. Isolt and William arrive too late to save the parents, which are ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill about to be disembowled by the monster]] near their severely injured children'', and if it wasn't for Isolt and William, their kids wouldn't have survived the encounter. [[AdultFear How many more wizard families - or even muggle families have gone on vacations to other countries, and met similar fates due to a simple misidentification of a creature they thought was mostly harmless?.]]
