"Awkward," "creepy," "disturbing."
Those were among the words "Harry Potter" fans used to describe the rather unexpected and altogether hallucinatory kiss between Harry and Hermione in "Deathly Hallows."
Streaming out of a midnight screening at an IMAX theater in New York City, with lightning-bolt scars drawn on their foreheads and clutching wands, "Potter"-ites were still reeling from that onscreen smooch.
"They're totally topless and it's really creepy," Emma Larson told MTV News.
That sentiment is not far from how Emma Watson
, who plays Hermione Granger, was feeling when she found out exactly what was in store for her scripted kiss.
