** Aragog making it perfectly clear to Harry and Ron that their being friends of Hagrid's ''doesn't mean a fucking thing to him.'' Think about that for a moment. Here are two children who clearly know Hagrid, are friends with Hagrid, are trying to help Hagrid stay out of Azkaban and he's just given them information that will help prove Hagrid's innocence, ''and he does not give a shit.'' He'll let his children kill and eat them, and you also get the clear impression that he won't even conceal that fact from Hagrid. He regards Hagrid as a friend, but beyond that anyone else is just a meal-

---> '''Aragog:''' Go...? ''I think not.'' My sons and daughters do not harm Hagrid, on my command. But I cannot deny them fresh meat when it wanders so willingly into our midst. ''Farewell...friend of Hagrid.''

* The Unforgivable Curses. They are so-called and net a lifetime sentence in Azkaban for very good reasons:
** The [[MindControlDevice Imperius]] Curse. Imagine being forced to do things like mutilate yourself and kill others with it.
** The [[AgonyBeam Cruciatus]] Curse, painful enough that two of its victims were rendered insane for life!
** And last but not least, [[OneHitKill Avada Kedavra]]. [[AdultFear Lily and James sacrifice themselves to this to protect a baby Harry, and Harry sees it hit Cedric and later Dumbledore with his own eyes.]]
*** The utter horror of the Killing Curse is just too mind-boggling to think, especially for the Muggles. Imagine, it is a spell that is cast specifically to ''kill''. It's like shooting with a pistol, except that pistol kills because it inflicts messy biological damages, which may not always [[OnlyAFleshWound happen with fatality]] (though as the word says: "When you shoot, you shoot to kill"). The primary characteristic of the Killing Curse (and why it is so handy to dark wizards) is that ''it leaves no biological damage''. Once you are hit by the green flash, you just drop dead, your internal organs being as the same before, except that they immediately stop functioning. Not even the wizards know why exactly it happens; imagine having to explain it to Muggles who have absolutely no idea why their neighbors suddenly have their life force ripped as if the beings above strip them of their right to live.

Three words: "''[[SacrificialLion Kill the spare]]''". Cedric and later Dumbledore Diggory, a 17-year-old popular Hogwarts student who participates in a tournament that can finally raise his house's prestige with a successful Quidditch career, a caring father, and a loving girlfriend, with a compassion to his own eyes.]]fellow compatriot on the tournament even if it reduces his prestige and goes out his way to help him, ''killed because he happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time''. From this point onward, it begs no question of why Harry acts paranoid at all times and desperately wants no one to associate with himself; he's afraid that Cedric's fate is going to befall them. Though, it also speaks an [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome awesome]] moment for his friends and Ron and Hermione in particular, who stubbornly always follow him no matter how dangerous being in that position is.


Added DiffLines:

* The Battle of the Department of Mysteries speaks volumes, considering how it involves a group of four 15-year-olds and two 14-year-olds [[AdultFear fighting for their life against the Death Eaters]], and the various injuries they get are horrific by itself, but the most horror has to be what Hermione experiences. She is struck by a mysterious purple spell conjured by Dolohov, which causes her to faint and immediately crumple, showing all signs of someone being ''killed''. Harry is actually very, very scared in his narration that she is really going to die, although it fortunately does not happen. After the battle, it is noted that Hermione has to experience a lengthy recuperation process that involves drinking a lot of potions for several weeks. Oh, didn't we mention that Dolohov is muted at that time? Nonverbal spells are not as powerful as verbal, which brings up a FridgeHorror of what would happen if he was not muted at that time. It is implied that a verbal version of this spell is what Dolohov uses to [[spoiler: kill Lupin in the final book.]]
** Rowling never elaborates the nature of this spell, unlike other high-end curses like the Unforgivable Curses or Sectumsempra or even Fiendfyre. What we know is that it can be negated but not deflected completely and that it inflicts some sort of internal damage as from the outside the people hit by this spell is peaceful-looking. It sounds an awful lot like a ThemeParkVersion of the Killing Curse, which is not much better.

* [[Characters/HarryPotter Umbridge]] herself. If there's anything scarier than NightmareFuel, she would be it. [[Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical "The Dementors are only afraid of one thing:]] ''Her.''" Here's a couple of things she's responsible for.

** This is justified later in the series as the Dursley family was the only place where he would be 100% safe from Voldemort or his followers as Petunia was Harrys last living relative. Harrys Childhood may not have been nice at all but at least it was killed and he was pretty much normal and raised far away from all the fame.

* So, back to those Dementors... The climactic scene where [[spoiler: Sirius and Harry are at the lake under attack]], there are ''swarms'' of them. The book makes it scary enough, but actually seeing it in the film, the part where one attacks [[spoiler: Harry]] and you can ''see'' part of [[spoiler: his]] soul getting sucked out, like some sort of double-consciousness, is horrifying, along with the screams of agony. Then two and three more attack, all sucking. [[spoiler: And just what was that small bright light leaving Sirius's mouth? If the Dementors had swallowed it, his soul might have been lost forever.]]

*** It's even worse if you think about this: 50 Years ago all that happend as well with one Girl [[spoiler: Moaning Myrtle]] ending up dead. Obviously every stone they could find was turned and even Dumbledore, the most powerful wizard of the time and Slughorn, who posessed a deep knowledge of dark magic and all the other teachers never seemed to have the slightest Idea where to search or even what ''what'' they where hunting. This time it was all the same and if Harry could not understand snakes, most likely no one would ever have found the Chamber of secrets
*** And there is the fact that the Basilisk was already ancient for it's standarts (1000 Years is the everage life span and it was older than that) and it still almost killed Harry (and it would have suceeded if not for Fawkes). Now think how things would have went if the Basilisk would have been on the height of it's physical strength and the equivalent of an 21 Years old man.

*** The film adds extra creep factor to the scene in the Shrieking Shack: accentuated by the music, Ron points to someone standing in the corner, the true form of the Grim, hiding behind the door that Harry and Hermione just walked through. In the dust covering the floor are pawprints, which the camera follows until it finds a man's shoes, then pans up to reveal that the hellhound that's been following Harry throughout the story is actually the mad murderer who they're all convinced is about to kill them: Sirius Black. The pawprints leading to a human being are downright unsettling--they create an unnatural sight even by the standards of a wizarding school.
