Essential plot rundown: Harry Potter gets scared in a haunted house. The trailers made this movie look really scary. Unfortunately, it was not. I'm tired and it's late, so I'm going to make this quick.
While the overall idea was interesting, there was nothing special about this movie. The towns folk warning Potter to leave seemed too cliche. And the scares were too repetitive. There was essentially one type of scare that they used over and over again. There were a couple of scary parts and creepy moments, but overall it was kind of bland. I liked the conclusion of the film, but not the ending, if that makes sense. It didn't seem to fit in with the rest of the movie. If they had cut off the last minute, it would have been a lot better.
The best part of the movie was the opening scene. That was pretty creepy. They should just have just released that 2 minutes as a short. That would have been sweet.
Overall, it's a mediocre film. There were a few scary/creepy moments but they weren't enough to carry the film. It's not a waste of time to watch but it's also not worth seeking out.

But that's just my opinion...
