* [[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.

** Her friend shouting "I warned her! I warned her not to touch it!" as Katie thrashes about on the ground is pure AdultFear.

** The video game version is even worse. [[spoiler:Here, Quirrell ''twists his head around'' so Voldemort is facing Harry directly]].

* The Erklings in the video game version are creepy as hell. They are known to lure children away from their parents to eat them. Oh, and they also sing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxdK1NNlJkE this eerie melody]].

** In the film, in addition to all that, when the locket opens a ''[[EldritchAbomination swirling cloud of darkness]]'' '''[[JumpScare explodes]]''' ''out of the locket with enough force to knock the boys off their feet.'' Swirling, ''talking'', constantly having things thrusting out of it then disappearing before you can seem them properly, all while a high-pitched whirling is playing; the thing was freaky as hell. Also scary Emma Watson's and Daniel Radcliffe's perfect delivery of the lines mocking Ron, and Rupert Grint pained and horrified face as he looks the two of them making out [[FanService half naked]].
