We have just over a month to go before James Watkins’ latest horror, The Woman in Black, arrives in UK cinemas. Mark 10th February on your calendars, for that is the day what is said to be one of the scariest films of the year arrives. Daniel Radcliffe takes the lead role in a film a million miles from his Harry Potter days, and we have had tons of images, clips and trailers already for my most anticipated horror of 2012. You can see all our previous stories here.
A brand new TV spot was released today, and it blends chilling visuals with an ultra creepy poem to give you the heads up on what you can expect. If you are brave enough the TV spot is at the bottom of this post, enjoy!
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.
