5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you for restoring my faith in horror films., 24 Mar 2012

This review is from: The Woman in Black [DVD] (DVD)
I am a huge horror fan, from the old classics, to the gory, to the modern psychological scares. After reading mixed reviews on The Woman In Black I went to see it at the cinema expecting a jumpy, slightly creepy Victorian ghost story. All I can say is that this film is all that and so much more. I thought Daniel Radcliffe's performance was absolutely brilliant, it's a shame some can't see past the 'Potter' in him. The film itself certainly is a good old fashioned ghost story, jumpy enough to keep the 'in your face' horror fans awake, but creepy enough to leave The Woman In Black with you long after you've finished watching.

Having seen this previously at the theatre there is one moment that everyone will be listening out for, (you know the one!), and when it happens it was the kind of creepy that gets under your skin, and I am not ashamed to say I spent the majority of this film with my friend hiding behind our hands urging him to get out of the house. Most of the horror is subtle, the 'corner of your eye' stuff that really sticks with you, though when the jumpy scares do come they're not at all the overdone, cheesy ghosts that many horror films produce.

A fantastic achievement for British horror, I can see this becoming a horror favourite of mine very quickly. Cannot wait for the DVD to arrive in June. Miss this, and you really are missing out.
