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.

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.
Oh and Daniel Radcliff can show just how well he is at moving away from his harry potter character!
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.
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.
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...

One foreword: this film bears near enough no similarity to its source material, especially as I'm reviewing the un-cut high-end-15-rated edition. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Arron Munro
