The story is about a young lawyer is sent to a quiet village to settle a recently-deceased client's account when he comes across the ghost of a woman seeking vengeance. This movie was so scary that I jumped out of my seat. The acting was good and the plot was good and overall I enjoyed this film.

I was shocked at how good this movie was. Dark setting, creepy and spooky vibs throughout. Wonderful first movie out of Harry Potter for Daniel Radcliffe. A must see,,,

The trailer looked scary enough although i wasnt too fond of this one. Although this film proves one thing and that is that Daniel Radcliffe's career can and will expand out of The Hogwart's School. There were some scares in this although it felt too mashed up at times leaving us with a confusing ending. The film pays eulogy to all the old black and white thriller of years gone by. Meh...so-so in my books!

"The Woman In Black" by Yojimbo

A lawyer and single parent still grieving the loss of his wife is sent to a country mansion supposedly haunted by a woman who causes the local children to commit suicide. Daniel Radcliffe's first foray into a world beyond Hogwart's is a Gothic ghost story in the tradition of Hammer Horror which takes the now familiar ingredients of J Horror and transposes them to Victorian England. Radcliffe actually makes the transition quite well and the spectre of Potter is soon forgotten as he gives a suitably haunted performance within some nicely atmospheric locations. The biggest problem is that the usual gimmicks of unseen faces at windows, midnight exhumations and occupant free rocking chairs have all been seen so often before it all seems so familiar that there are no surprises at all for such a...

Underwhelming sophomore effort.

This hammer horror film has some effectively creepy moments, but unfortunately it fails to truly terrify or amount to much. While Radcliffe is a decent enough actor, he is just woefully miiscast. He isn't convincing enough as a father dealing with the death of his wife. Also, coming from the director who brought us Eden Lake, one of the greatest sucker punches in horror movie history, it's disappointing that he relys too much on cheap jump scares (though truly gave me quite a jolt.) The Woman In Black is certainly well made, the set design is perfectly creepy, as is the atmosphere. But it's all undone by it's lack of any truly memorable scares or originality. And the happy ending is the final nail in the coffin. Mr. Watkins, you are better than this! (PG13- violent images, terror, a...

On the whole, disappointing!

The scenery was awesome, scary moments really scary and the story intriguing... in the beginning. As film progressed, my interest for the story dwindled, and in the end I was just disappointed. Daniel Radcliffe's character simply wasn't interesting enough, and it seems he himself cannot still shake off his Harry Potter manners. The ending was in my opinion ridiculous and unsatisfying, not to mention contradictory to the character of the woman in black and to the whole point of the story - if there was any point actually.

Don't read further if you haven't seen the film - spoilers below:

Really, not only Arthur didn't accomplish the task he was sent for, from the beginning of the film, he didn't even manage to solve the village issue with the woman in black. He did solve the mystery o...
