Hammer studios release their best movie in decades, with this stark, atmospheric ghost story.

Radcliffe is a lawyer who has a tragic past. His wife died during childbirth and now he is struggling to make ends meet and is on a final warning at his law firm.

He goes to a remote village, where it seems that everyone has seen The Wicker Man and treat Kipps as an outsider. He is there on business to sort out someones estate, but the locals are desperate to get rid of him, apart from one, the local rich man, Sam.

Kipps arrives at the estate to catch up on paperwork, and when he looks out of the window, he sees a mysterious figure, the titular character.

From then on, every time he sees 'TWIB', a child from the village dies in a violent way.

Slowly uncovering the truth via letters from dead relatives, Kipps goes through psychological toil trying to keep sane and keep harm away from his child...

What Potter did next is something very mature and hugely scary in parts. It's a traditional ghost story, and the director knows what to do with the source material and the beautiful house which, without trying to sound clichéd, becomes a character in itself.

What makes the film more eerie is that we never really see 'TWIB' close up until the last five or ten minutes. The rest of the film, we are treated to subliminal glimpses and effective use of 'old house sounds'.

Radcliffe is great, and soon gets rid of the Potter similarities, although he may be a little too young to plat the character.

the film gives you an unsettling feel of dread from the offset and depending on which way you look at it, the end is either very glum or very uplifting, Kudos to Jane Goldman for such a good script too.

Well worth seeing.

And the dog makes it at the end if you were wondering...

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!

The original Woman is Black (1989) is a very chilling, gripping tale. And about three decades later, a remake was made. At first, I though the film would be over the top, and much worse that the original. But I could not have been more wrong. This remake was really good, actually topping the original, I did not expect that. The film is stronger than the original in many ways, and it has plenty of jumpy scenes, a really good plot, and it did not turn what is supposed to be a spine chilling ghost story into a gorey horror film.

The movie tells the tale of Arthur Kipps, a lawyer who has to leave his young son and travel to a remote village to attend the affairs of the recently deceased owner of Eel Marsh House. Working alone in the old mansion, Kipps begins to discover the very dark 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 the break the cycle of terror. This movie is very terrifying and has lots of chilling scenes that make us 'jump out of seats'. It also has a brilliant storyline and it builds up and builds up until we get to the very unpredictable outcome. It is also good to see Daniel Radcliffe as the main character, as he became one of my favourite actors after seeing him as the main character in Harry Potter, which came to an end in 2011, so it was good to see him on the big screen once again. The acting form every cast member in this film was really good, even actors which only had about about one scene in the film, and there acting made the film even more chilling and spooky.

Daniel Radcliffe plays Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer sent to sort out the affairs of a recently deceased woman. It is his last chance to prove himself to his employers, after his wife died during childbirth, and he's been grieving ever since.
After arriving in Cryphin Gifford, he is advised not to go out to Eel Marsh House, which the woman owned. After insisting that is why he is there, someone takes him. The house, only being accessible at low tide, after that being cut off completely. and promptly leaves him there, alone.

Daniel Radcliffe is perfectly cast in this role, as Arthur Kipps, and plays it brilliantly. This version is truer to the book than the 1989 TV version, with Adrian Rawlins, which is now unavailable anywhere, and only second-hand copies exist, except for some pirates.
This film was a long time coming, as I have said, apart from the TV version this book had never been filmed for the cinema before.

If you like creepy ghost stories with lots of atmosphere, then you will certainly enjoy this film. If you're into reading, then the book is also worth buying.

Definition is pin sharp, and colours are natural.
This blu ray transfer is presented in it's original 2.35:1 aspect ratio, and has a 5.1 soundtrack.

Highly recommended.
