“The Woman in Black” showing Radcliffe in Hammer style

From the risen-a-while-from-the-grave Hammer Films now comes a horrorfilm that really seems to pay homage to the famous Hammer era with its luscious gothic atmosphere. Alongside Daniel Radcliffe also Ciaran Hinds and Janet McTeer star and the James Watkins (Eden Lake) directed film is based on the novel of Susan Hill. This trailer gets me pretty excited for a good old fashioned ghost story.

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 dying 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.
