From Modern Mythcraft to Magical Surrealism

Half Blood Prince Trailer

I’m sure most die-hard fans have already noticed that the official trailer for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is out. For those of you less keyed in to these things, check it out below.

What I love about this trailer is that it’s more like a horror movie teaser than a kids movie one. Obviously the books and films grew up with Harry, but this thing is actively creepy and scary. That kid playing young Tom? Ack. If they can sustain that level of creepy and wrong throughout the scene I will be very impressed.
