Based on the classic ghost story, The Woman In Black tells the tale of Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe), a lawyer who is forced to leave his young son and travel to a remote village to attend to the affairs of the recently deceased owner of Eel Marsh House.

Working alone in the old mansion, Kipps begins to uncover the town's tragic and tortured secrets and his fears escalate when he discovers that local children have been disappearing under mysterious circumstances. When those closest to him become threatened by the vengeful woman in black, Kipps must find a way to break the cycle of terror.

daniel radcliffe ( minus his wand ) stars in this drama as 'arthur kipps' who works for a firm of solicitors and is given one last chance to save his career, his task is to sort out the paperwork in a remote house preparing it for sale.
all alone in the big house things begin to happen, noises and brief sightings of the legend that haunts the house and who's sighting signals fear for the villagers living on the mainland.
this is a atmospheric and chilling tale with continuous tension throughout, edge of the seat stuff from the 'hammer' studio.
worthy of your time to view.

I was very much looking forward to this,as Daniel Radcliffe grows up and leaves Potter far behind also Directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake) and released on the relaunched Hammer label. The film is brilliantly gothic and moody, dark shadows, rolling mist, haunted houses,and a village that hides a secret. The film drip feeds the dread from the moment it starts as Radcliffe takes a trip to the North East to sort out the deeds of a estate and things start to go bump in the night. Radcliffe is excellent as although still looking like a thirteen year old he convinces in his guilt stricken performance. The sets are brilliantly spooky and as the spooks starts it does send an odd shiver up the spine, but nothing more than that. As the mystery of the child deaths in the village unfold the visits from the woman in black become more intense but the film has to revert to jump scares to get a cheap reaction where the first half of the film played it better by letting the viewer use the imagination, but I have to say the final moments of the film is unexpected and gives the film a great emotional punch.
The Woman In Black is a good movie, but I did expect something a bit more un-nerving and original as this slow burn ghost story has now been done to death.

 A Real Spine Tingler

What I loved about the classic Hammer films was their ability to send a shiver down your spine without the need for blood and guts. Well Hammer have done it again with this "jump out of your seat" film. Welcome back Hammer, you have been missed. Just make sure you don't have a drink in your hand when watching this. Believe me, you will spill it !!
