Nightmare Fuel: Changes
Try Ebenezar McCoy casually ripping the life from 200 men with two waves of the Blackstaff. This is why we have the Laws of Magic, folks. You know it's bad when even Harry is appalled at the sheer cold-bloodedness of it.
The Red Court attack on the FBI building. Made especially disturbing by Susan's explanation of their methodology: start from the ground floor and kill their way up, taking out anyone they find, solely to "send a message."
It's also pretty chilling that she states that the human Cartels use this tactic too.
The heart-ripper curse was powerful enough to take down every Red Court vampire on the planet. All of that power was garnered by Human Sacrifice. Harry may have saved the particular lives he'd been fighting for, but a hell of a lot of innocent people were butchered before he even got to Chichen Itza.
