There are now only 48 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters!  We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is today's quote!

And in the instant that he looked away, his eyes raking the tangled mess for a sword hilt, a ruby, she moved weirdly: He saw it out of the corner of his eye; panic made him turn and horror paralyzed him as he saw the old body collapsing and the great snake pouring from the place where her neck had been.

this scene was so easy to imagine, though I probably didn’t imagine it similarly to anyone else…so I bet in the film it will be completely different…but if it is as freaky as I thought it was it’ll still be great!!

This was a scene worthy of a thriller movie.

Ugh – the smell, the mess, the disbelief in what he (Harry) is seeing – Rowling’s words are so simple yet so descriptive. She is a master of suspense and nightmarish horror!

And people think these are just children’s stories!

Poor Bathilda. What a horrible way to end her life! It just shows that Voldemort has no understanding whatever of the value of life. Bathilda was used by Rita Skeeter, and in death, the poor woman’s body is used to lure Harry in. It is amazing that he and Hermione escaped from Bathilda’s house! It really is a sad reflection of our world today. Her neighbours weren’t looking out for her very well at all! I loved this chapter as it really was creepy and exciting!

Considering what they can do with CG effects these days, and the fact that the movie’s in 3D, I’m expecting this scene to be truly gross, with Bathilda’s body sort of crumpling and imploding as the snake pours out. It will likely be too nightmarishly scary to watch for young ones. I wonder how much the studio is willing to tone down to keep the movie’s rating at PG instead of PG-13.
