Voldemort : Origins Of The Heir  (Review) 

Hello beautiful people , I’m back with another post and this one is a review , not any review , a review of the short movie Voldemort : Origins Of The Heir . Now I don’t really do movie reviews , but this one I HAD to do it . I am a huge fan of The Harry Potter Film Series , I read the books , watched all of the movies . And I still do this tradition of mine to re watch all of the movies every year . It is a short movie and it is an unofficial fan-made prequel to The Harry Potter film series, directed by Gianmario Pezzato and with Stephano Prestia as executive producer . The film was not released in cinemas but available to view for free on YouTube. It was uploaded for viewing on January 13, 2018 . Voldemort: Origins of the Heir depicts the story of Tom Riddle’s rise to power. Riddle, later known as Voldemort, is a powerful dark wizard and main antagonist in the Harry Potter saga. And he’s also my favorite villain of all time . Several original characters are introduced in the film: not only the protagonist, the Heir of Slytherin, but also the other Hogwarts houses’ heirs. During the Cold War in Soviet Russia, a witch battles against government Aurors as she makes her way through a secret facility. Her goal? To retrieve the diary of Tom Marvolo Riddle – the man destined to become evil sorcerer Lord Voldemort. The witch, Grisha McLaggan, is captured by the Soviet forces and interrogated, where she tells her story… and that of Tom Riddle.Beginning with their friendship back at Hogwarts as children, they – along with two others – were the heirs of the four great wizarding Houses: Slytherin, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. Yet the tension between them is already rife, and it’s clear that Riddle has villainous plans in motion. Now, Grisha has learned of Riddle’s quest for power and is desperately tracking down the items which will become his infamous Horcruxes. But with time running out, can she succeed?
The narrative consists of a series of flashback scenes . There’s an amazing duelling sequence and another amazing flashback scene where Tom Riddle acquires two of his horcruxes , which is overflowing with genuine menace . The filmmakers clearly know their stuff , the incredibly low budget barely shows and the special effects put many big-budget Hollywood blockbusters to shame ! I was pleasantly surprised with this fan made short movie . The storyline , the actors’s delivery although it was dubbed because the actors are italian . I love it ! It is such a well made short movie , considering the low budget and that it was fan made ! I recommend all Harry Potter fans to watch it . It is available on Youtube here : Voldemort : Origins Of The Heir That was all for this post , I hope you liked it . If you’ve watched this short movie , let me know in the comments what you thought of it , what you liked and what you didn’t like . And if you haven’t watched it yet , go watch it ! I’ll see you guys in my next post . Oh and what did you think of my review ? Should I post more movie / series reviews ?
