Words cannot describe how excited I am to see James Watkin’s remake of The Woman in Black, if you could see me you would probably laugh at all the jumping around I tend to do when seeing anything new for what is promised to be one of the scariest films of 2012. Released in UK cinemas 10th February 2012, next year is shaping up to be a mighty year for horror, with The Devil Inside, Six Degrees of Hell, Prometheus and Six Degrees of Hell, to name just a few. However, The Woman in Black is right at the top of my list!
James Watkins (Eden Lake) transforms Daniel Radcliffe in what looks like one incredible performance, and he will be supported by Janet McTeer, Ciaran Hinds, Roger Allam and Sophie Stuckey. The film is based on the chilling novel written by Susan Hill, and Jane Goldman has written the screenplay.

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.
