Product Description

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars UK release ruined by Censorship. 21 Aug 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Don't waste your time with the UK DVD and Blu Ray release. It has been reedited, cut, images darkened and sound altered, all to change it from being a 16 rating down to a 12.

Seen as how this excellent British film is a big comeback for the legendary Hammer Horror film company, it seems ironic that the UK has been landed with a heavily censored version of the film.

Instead, go to Amazon.de and buy Die Frau in Schwarz, the fully uncut German release, seen as the director intended it. Switching to the 2nd audio track gives you English (German being 1st). Picture and Sound quality are excellent, and with Germany being in the same region code area, both the DVD and Blu Ray will play on UK machines.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chasing shadows 22 Feb 2014
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I love gothic horror -- big cobwebbed houses, squawking ravens, rolling mists and mysterious sinister figures that are only glimpsed. "The Woman in Black" has all of those. In fact, this slow, haunting movie loads on the Edwardian ghost-story atmosphere so thick that it practically chokes you -- and while it tends to move slowly, it's beautifully creepy.

Young lawyer Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) has a life in tatters -- his career is in jeopardy, and he's still in mourning over the loss of his wife four years ago. He's sent to sort through the personal effects of Alice Drablow, who left behind a decayed mansion set in the misty marshes -- and when visiting the house, he sees a veiled woman in black.

The locals are also desperate to get rid of him, even blaming him for the death of a child who drank lye. And soon Kipps begins to understand why, as he unravels the secrets of the Drablow family, and the madwoman who lost her child long ago. With the help of his new friend Sam Daily (Ciarán Hinds), Kipps will set out to stop the Woman in Black before she claims what's dearest to him.

I haven't been too impressed with the output of the revitalized Hammer Films company. "The Woman in Black" is probably the best horror movie they've produced -- it feels like a modern version of their shadowy, gothic old movies. It's also not very scary, although director James Watkins tosses in a few jump scares (a raven, a faucet, etc).

Instead, the movie just makes you uneasy. We're constantly aware that SOMETHING is hovering over this town. But for most of the movie, we only see fleeting glimpses of the Woman and her power.

The biggest problem is that the movie moves rather slowly, especially in the first half.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and scary! 6 April 2012
By Willow
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure what to expect having read the brilliant book by Susan Hill, but was really glad that I went to see this film! Fantastic, dark and eerie house (Unlike previous film that was shot in mostly daylight - not even slightly scary, and was therefore not faithful to the book).
As I enjoyed Harry Potter, thought I'd keep visualising Daniel Radcliffe doing that Potter 'Look' and that I wouldn't be able to take him seriously in this role, but he was great, very impressed. He doesn't say that much, but his role as the suffering Arthur Kipps was spot on. There are extra scary bits in this film that aren't in the book plus a bit missing that I was a little surprised about, (whistling to dog) as it's a particularly eerie bit, but nevertheless, a film to watch and enjoy if you like creepy films without blood and guts,(and in my case, order on blu-ray and watch many times on a windy rainy night!). The best film I've seen in ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great film for that saturday night in 15 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
.....with a loved one and you want to sit behind a cushion and snuggle into each other. This film ONLY works in surround sound and the lights off!!! Its NOT a gore feast, or a horror, slasher. Its a simple old style jumper, when something moves unexpectedly and the music shrieks! Most folk wont appreciate this, everyone seems desensitised by the gore,slasher, horrors they are going about. THATS not horror, thats my local abattoir!!!
Oh and Daniel Radcliff can show just how well he is at moving away from his harry potter character!

1.0 out of 5 stars CENSORED AND CUT DVD VERSION 3 Sep 2012
Format:DVD
Avoid this DVD version - for some odd reason the distributors are releasing cut and censored DVD versions and releasing the uncut versions on Blu-Ray.

Avoid buying this product and put a stop to the public being 'bullied' into buying Blu-Ray discs.

The Region 1 is uncut so this is the best version to buy currently.

The poor rating is to do with the fact that this film is censored , the film is awesome and I would award it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best jump out of your skin movie ever! 21 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Superbly composed Victorian haunted house drama, fabulous scenery, inside and outside the house. The more you watch it, the better it gets. DON'T watch if you have a dodgy ticker.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delivers Genuine Creepiness & Scares! 22 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
Many supernatural/horror movies, these days, promise so much but seem always to deliver so little; not so with this film. Having watched it at the cinema with the wife - who likes a good scare - we were very entertained. Being an adult of sound mind, I've never been keen on Harry Potter, but I thought the Radcliffe lad did an excellent job in his role as Arthur Kipps - a recently widowed legal clerk and father of one - who's job is hanging by a thread when he is assigned to settling the estate of the eerie 'Eel Marsh House', where alot of the ghostly action takes place. I found Radcliffe to be posessed of that troubled/sensitive quality that goes with the character, and there's not a hint of Potter about him. It's difficult to say much about this film without giving a deal of it away, and the less you know before you watch it - probably the better. But I will say - for worthwhile storyline, creepiness and decent scares (not over reliant on use of gore or CGI), this film really does deliver. A great supporting cast too, playing the local villagers with a terrifying secret! This movie ranks along side greats like 'The Changeling' and is similarly well executed. You will delight in it's air of tension and menace throughout! Enjoy!
