Hell comes to Hogwarts: The darkest Harry Potter movie moments

We picked up on this list from "The Moviefile Blog" on Television Without Pity a few weeks back but held on to it for just the right moment.

That moment came yesterday when I called various synonyms for effeminate by a random Borders bookstore fanboy after saying Sirius Black's death in
Order of the Phoenix was a pretty gut wrenching and twisted moment in modern pop culture.

I hope I never see the aforementioned fanboy again, but I'll happily prove him wrong with a compilation of the "10 Most Effed-Up Harry Potter Moments (Pre-Half Blood)." It's a pretty solid list that really hits home the notion that, not only is Potter scribe Rowling a genius, she's also intent on screwing kids up throughout their entire puberty.
