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.

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.

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.

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...

The Woman In Black is a wonderful return to the mainstream for Hammer Films. The $13m chiller has so far raked in almost $106m at the box office and has become one of the most successful British horror movies of the past twenty years. If you love suspense and an abundance of jumps, then this movie is for you. Hopefully, the DVD will also include the uncut 15 certificate version.

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!
