“The Chamber of Secrets has been opened. Enemies of the heir, beware.” With this ominous message, we begin our journey to discover who opened the chamber and who the mysterious Tom Riddle is. Warning: don’t go into the girls’ bathroom alone. Moaning Myrtle can’t protect you.
This film is a part of a 12-hour marathon featuring the first four films in the Harry Potter series. There will be Harry Potter-themed snacks available, and Ohio University’s Harry Potter Alliance will be hosting trivia and costume contests. Viewers, beware! This film features scary creatures, fake blood, an excessive amount of redheads, and He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.
“Darker, funnier and more action-packed than the first film, ‘Chamber’ seems inspired as much by Steven Spielberg’s galloping ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark.'”- Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
“The second in a planned series of seven Potter films is brimming with invention and new ideas, and its Hogwarts School seems to expand and deepen before our very eyes into a world large enough to conceal unguessable secrets.” -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
