This has been a great year for the Harry Potter Universe. While J.K Rowling has said she is “done” with the actual stories about Potter, she has delved in to the world of playwright and screenwriter to experiment in her wonderful world of witches and wizards. The hype surrounding Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been building for almost two years now. This story features Eddie Redmayne playing Newt Scamander, the famous author of the textbook by the same name as the title. Those of us true Harry Potter fans already read Rowling’s version of the text book when it came out in paperback way back when, but now there’s a whole story to surround the making of aid textbook. This week I dove back in to the Potterverse head first, and here’s my spoiler filled review of them movie.
Hello there Rowling fans, your favorite weekend creature column is continuing our month long venture in to the magical world of Harry Potter creatures with one hell of a monstrosity this week: the dementor. These creatures are so vile and evil they could easily have their own spot on our devilish Horrors or Villain Spotlight columns, but since they are fresh in my mind as I re-live the third novel in the Harry Potter series, I’m going to bring them to you here first.
Welcome back evil geeks, it’s time for Lilith to take the suggestions column hostage and seed your little brains with her recommendations. This week’s column is dedicated to all you book-lovers out there, and I know there are many of you amongst our followers. Read on for some incredible advice and a never-dull tale.
There are dozens of monsters and creatures in the Harry Potter series I would love to encounter, but I think thestrals are on the top of my list. Thanks to Greek mythology many of us are fascinated with the Pegasus like horses out there, but thestrals add a unique twist to the concept. This weekend we will fly alongside our Hogwarts classmates on this magnificent monster as we learn more about the magical creatures from Harry Potter’s world.
