James Watkins’ The Woman in Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe, is set to be one of the scariest films of 2012. Due for release in UK cinemas 10th February, a new viral website has just launched in time for Halloween where you can have some fun. Here’s all the details you need:
Visitors have only a partially obscured view, just enough to see through the doorway and into this young girl’s room. By using motion recognition with the computer’s webcam, visitors to the site can shift their perspective within the room by simply moving right and left in front of their own computer to see what lurks behind the door and in the shadows. No matter how scared you get, expect to receive your own customized photo, compliments of THE WOMAN IN BLACK!

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.
The film is based on the novel by Susan Hill and also stars Ciaran Hinds, Janet McTeer, Sophie Stuckey and Roger Allam. Jane Goldman wrote the screenplay.
