Viral Video: Scary Potter!

The newest trailer for the latest in the long-running movie series of the boy-who-lived wizard is finally showing just how dark magic can get.

In the trailer for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1”–the book it is based on has been split into two parts–things are looking bleak for Harry, Hermione and Ron, who are now very much grown up, as creepy, face-deprived Voldemort steps up his game.
