Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets (2002) Movie Review - Quick Movie Reviews by Haris

The scariest Harry Potter movie. One that gave me nightmares all the way up until I was 14, I believe. Why does there have to be so many giant hairy spiders in this movie? Why? So, the plot… Harry is forced to spend his summer holidays with his muggle family, the Dursleys. Oh my god. Such assholes. Harry gets a surprise visitor in his room, Dobby, a cute house-elf, who warns Harry against returning to Hogwarts, for terrible things are going to happen. Harry decides to ignore him, but eventually the things that he predicted start happening at Hogwarts. This is surprisingly a real dark and suspensful movie. This feels almost like a psychological horror movie and I’m not even talking about the 1000 human-sized spiders that appear here. And for that reason, I kind of like this movie as well. But because of the spiders and because I feel like it’s a little too long. At 161 minutes, this is the longest Harry Potter movie. 8/10*

Still a very good movie, though. I liked it almost as much as the first one.
