The appearance of various characters and/or monsters, such as Voldemort, some fiery dragon type apparitions, the Dementors, an elf, etc.

Voldemort projects frightening visions into Harry's head throughout the film, and the effects on Harry start to show.

Harry has nightmares several times throughout the film. One of his nightmares shows visions of Cedric being killed again in the Goblet of Fire, this can be very frightening for younger viewers to see.

The big duel between Voldemort and Dumbledore is very intense and frightening.

Voldemort tries to posses Harry, causing Harry great agony; he writhes and screams on the floor while his friends watch on helplessly and Dumbledore tries to help him, and his eyes blaze frighteningly and demonically, while Voldemort's voice issues from Harry's mouth. There are a lot of disturbing flashing images during this sequence (Voldemort posing demonically and laughing and taunting Harry, Voldemort's head on Harry's body when he looks in a mirror, the deaths of a some characters, and other frightening imagery) , and it is quite prolonged. Harry eventually forces Voldemort from his mind and Voldemort is torn quite violently from Harry's chest.

Total: 21/50
