Don’t worry dear readers, you won’t have to wait THAT much longer to see Harry Potter… sorry, Daniel Radcliffe flex his acting skills again. The Woman in Black, the Hammer produced period horror based on the terrifying novel by Susan Hill will only be a few weeks later than originally planned. Us luck folk here in the UK get the film now on February 10th 2012, a week later than those lucky fellas in the US.
The teaser trailer above looks very creepy indeed and, apart from seeing what Radcliffe is capable of post Potter, I am very keen to see what Eden Lake director James Watkins can come up with next after such a brutal and violent assault on the senses. Eden Lake was one of my favourite British horrors of the past decade, and Watkins has shown he has immense talent and I can’t wait to see how he handles a more atmospheric horror tale. The Woman in Black also stars Cirian Hinds, Janet McTeer and Shaun Dooley. Here is the synopsis:
The Woman in Black follows a young lawyer, Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), who is ordered to travel to a remote corner of the UK and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As he works alone in an old and isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover its tragic secrets, and his unease grows when he discovers that the local village is held hostage by the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance.
