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.

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.

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.

.....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!

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.

It's ironic that after explicit modern-day horror films made Hammer's period gothic horror output look outdated and hurried along the studio's decline in the 70s, the resurrected 21st century version of the company would break its run of modern-day box-office flops with a period gothic horror, albeit one that owes more to films like The Innocents and The Haunting than own traditional output (though there are unfriendly frightened villagers aplenty). But perhaps the success of The Woman in Black - the highest grossing British horror film in two decades - shouldn't have come as too much of a surprise after its many previous successful incarnations as novel, TV and radio adaptations and a play that threatens to run longer in the West End than The Mousetrap, all of them changing the novel's ending. The film is the loosest adaptation of them all, angering many of its fans, but taken on its own merits the film works surprisingly well even if Jane Goldman's script doesn't balance its need for a bigger ending (and one which owes more to Japanese horror than the source material) and to somehow find a way to lighten up the consequences of its grim resolution - no easy task in a tale about a vengeful ghost stealing children.

Yet for the most part it's a classic ghost story told in a classic style, favouring subtle half-glimpsed over the shoulder moments to obvious shock effects, which makes it a pity when the last quarter of the film throws in a couple of ghost train-style BOO! moments that feel like they've been added at the last minute by nervous producers (entirely possible since the film's release was substantially delayed for reshoots).
