Harry Potter Moment of the Week (46): Scariest Magical Creature

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Uncorked Thoughts. The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/films/J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! A list of upcoming topics can be found here.

This week's topic is:
Scariest Magical Creature

The scariest creature for me is only from the movies and not the books. The Sorting Hat in the movies terrified me as a kid. It was so crazed and unpredictable that you didn't know if it was going to get hungry one day and suck a student's brain right out of their ear! Or produce razor sharp teeth from its brim and scalp students, keeping mementos of its own brutality. Absolutely terrifying if you ask me.


  1. Hahaha! In the movies they did make it look a little more scary than I imagined it to be, that's true. And the behind the scenes one where it was only a metal skeleton that was later computerized into a hat looks even more funny and weird at the same time.

  2. LOL! I think if I'd seen the movies/read the books in my youth, I could definitely see myself getting oddly creeped out by the Sorting Hat. Just the fact that it's so big, magical, can talk AND can read your thoughts is kind of creepy! If I ever saw it produce razor sharp teeth I would be traumatized O.O

  3. I know exactly what you mean! He just seemed to be patiently waiting for his day to go batshit crazy and put everyone in the wrong house and create chaos! And the way he just moved, pulling the student's heads left and right... ugh! Great choice!

  4. HAHAHA! That's fantastic. Definitely not one that I thought up, but you have a point. He was pretty creepy in the movies. The voice didn't help at all. Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  5. Hahahaha this is brilliant! Not an answer I expected to see this week at all :P. I love it! Can totally understand where you're coming from though.

  6. LOL I love the sorting hat! I find the Basilisk scary because I hate snakes! I literally get nightmares over it.
