:: The Woman In Black

Nobody quite does horror the way that Hammer Studios does. It’s nice to sit down and watch a horror film and be genuinely scared rather than have to sit back and watch countless people hacked up for some sicko’s pleasure, no The Woman In Black goes back to that old Hitchcock style horror that has you jumping out of your seat throughout the film.

Based on a novel by Susan Hill The Woman In Black follows a depressed lawyer named Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) who despite having a young son, Joseph (Misha Handley) has never really recovered from the death of his worth. In a bid to save his job Arthur takes a trip to a mysterious coastal town where he is to settle the estate of a recently deceased estate. Once there though he discovers that the estate consists of a mansion that all the locals warn Arthur not to go to.

Despite their warnings Arthur goes to the mansion and after he sees some mysterious events there the children of the village start dying. Soon the town’s people don’t want to have anything to do with Arthur, all except for Sam (Ciaran Hinds) and his wife (Janet McTeer) whose own son was the victim of a tragic accident.
