Sex & Nudity

None Whatsoever


Violence & Gore

5/10 Contains Mild/Medium Levels of Fantasy Violence, Some injuries and some mild gore, Heavy PG Level

A house elf repeatedly beats himself and is beaten. (Hitting himself with lamps, Banging his head into dressers, telling Harry he had to Iron his hands, and kicked by his master and goes flying)

Two boys drive a flying car. It lands in a tree that attacks the car, breaking windows and the car falls out of the tree. They are alright, but had it been in real life they would have been seriously hurt.

People are petrified and stay frozen in position. Pretty disturbing.

Messages are written on walls with blood.

A boys arm is broken. A professor tries to fix it instead of letting the nurse handle it. In turn the boys arm ends up having no bones in it, and can stretch all the way back. A bit nasty.

Men are seen carrying a dead girl covered by a sheet. The girls hand slips out of the sheet.

Hundreds of very large spiders chase and try to kill two boys in a forest.

Harry faces off with a giant snake. A phoenix blinds the snake by scratching out it's eyes. Harry stabs the snake through the roof of it's mouth. Some blood is shown. He is also bitten by the snake and pulls a tooth out of his arm.


3/10 Some mild language, nothing stronger than ass

3 "bloody", 3 "bloody hell", 1 use of "ass".

Teachers of Hogwarts are seen drinking wine.

The scene in Knockturn Alley has a unexpected moment: it is very quiet when Harry is examining an item in the shop (the Hand of Glory) and suddenly it grabs Harry's hand with a loud sound effect. This part may make you jump.

Scene in the Dark Forest is particularly frightening, especially if you hate spiders.

Entire confrontation with The Basilisk (Large Snake) is quite frightening. Snake pops out a couple times but is ultimately defeated (see Violence) .
