Harry Potter goes dark

I'm a Harry Potter fan, and I'm especially excited for this installment because this one has zombies. Or something closely resembling zombies. Well, they're humanoid ghoulish creepies anyway (the "Inferi" for anyone who hasn't read the books):

These movies, like the books, have gotten increasingly dark and more complex, and this pleases me, as I believe that everything should always get darker and more complex. And of the seven books, I thought this one would be the easiest to screw up, but apparently it's quite good. The report from Rotten Tomatoes bodes well, anyway. I guess I shouldn't have worried, after all, this is the story where Snape really comes into his own, and that means more Alan Rickman.
