    Default The Woman in Black

    Horror/Mystery film starring Harry P...I mean Daniel Radcliffe. It seems interesting like most horror movie trailers.

    Loved the book, looking forward to the movie.

    And I have to say, that trailer is pretty damn good.

    Thumbs up Re: The Woman in Black

    Saw it the other day...

    I'll say only one thing - in my view, it's one of the most frightening and effective horror films of the last 10 years. No Freddy, no Jason, no Jigsaw...pure old-school gothic horror that'll scare the s*** out of you. If you're a fan of these types of films, don't miss it. Go see it on the big screen as soon as you can. You'll thank me later.

    That's spot-on. About time I saw some horror films withouh many cliches
    The only problem that I really hated was that the cinema was full of idiotic teenagers who couldn't keep their f**** mouths shut and were laughing at every scare. it should be legal to kill them with a machete.

    Yeah, I can't take that. I ever have that problem, I take care of it, even if it means looking like an ass and getting a manager in to tell them to stop or yank them out. Luckily I didn't have that problem with this film.

    Yeah, it was great to see an old school horror film like that in a theater. It felt like a cross between old school haunting films like The Innocents and monster movies like, well, most of Hammer's classic output. The Woman herself has all the makings of a classic monster, and the Eel Marsh house could easily join the ranks of best haunted houses in film. If ever there were an opportunity for a new creation to join the ranks of Dracula and Frankenstein, this is it.

    Agreed.

    And I'd like to mention that I really liked Daniel Radcliffe's performance. 15 minutes in and I forgot that this was the kid that played Harry Potter for 10 years. Good choice on his part.

    I feel the same way. He reminded me of Peter Cushing at some points, to be honest.

    Its nice of Daniel to make personal advertisement for this movie, i saw him on Dutch television for RTL4 i believe it was.
    Glad he finally does something different.. Movie looks good hope to see it.
