After a lonely summer on Privet Drive, Harry returns to a Hogwarts full of ill-fortune. Few of students and parents believe him or Dumbledore that Voldemort is really back. The ministry had decided to step in by appointing a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher that proves to be the nastiest person Harry has ever encountered. Harry also can't help stealing glances with the beautiful Cho Chang. To top it off are dreams that Harry can't explain, and a mystery behind something Voldemort is searching for. With these many things Harry begins one of his toughest years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Harry chases Bellatrix Lestrange and hits her with the torture curse and is in such a rage he appears on the brink of killing her. Voldemort taunts Harry to murder her during this part. -Another wizards' duel between Dumbledore and Voldemort. -Harry sees a memory of Snape being bullied by Sirius, James and Peter Pettigrew; he's hung upside-down from a tree and made fun of. Snape calls Harry's father names like "swine". -Harry is forced to write a phrase several times on parchment. Said phrase slowly appears carved on his hand, with violent bloody marks shown. -Voldemort possesses Harry; his face all cut up and he falls to the ground. Writhing in pain, his demonic eyes pierce up at a disturbed Dumbledore, then a possessed Harry (in Voldemort' voice) exclaims "you've lost, old man!".This is the MAIN reason that gives the movie its PG-13 rating.

Harry has nightmares several times throughout the film. One of his nightmares shows visions of Cedric being killed again in the Goblet of Fire, this can be very frightening for younger viewers to see. The big duel between Voldemort and Dumbledore is very intense and frightening. Voldemort tries to posses Harry, causing Harry great agony; he writhes and screams on the floor while his friends watch on helplessly and Dumbledore tries to help him, and his eyes blaze frighteningly and demonically, while Voldemort's voice issues from Harry's mouth. There are a lot of disturbing flashing images during this sequence (Voldemort posing demonically and laughing and taunting Harry, Voldemort's head on Harry's body when he looks in a mirror, the deaths of a some characters, and other frightening imagery) , and it is quite prolonged. Harry eventually forces Voldemort from his mind and Voldemort is torn quite violently from Harry's chest. Total: 21/50|
