The Woman in Black is your standard-issue ghost story, gussied up in period garb to make it look like a prestige picture.
It is a famous play done thousands of times and is set in that period. Do your homework.

Since when is shit prestigious because it's "based on a play"? One of my favorite films (possibly my favorite John Malkovich) is "The Glass Menagerie". Maybe this one sucked THIS hard because it did not embrace its origins so freely. If you loved this one, may I recommend "Darkness Falls" for your obviously discerning tastes? Or, perhaps, "Dead Silence" is more to your liking.

While seeing this movie, it reminded me of The Amityville Horror. But I found this one way more tense and suspenseful.
So you Mr. Graham are an idiot for saying a comment like that!!

Adam Graham's right guys, once fanboys and fangirls get over the fact that it has the star from Harry Potter, it becomes clear that the theme of this movie is quite cliche.

I could give 2 shits what Daniel Radcliffe did previous to this movie. The fact remains that:
A. The book was fantastically creepy, and the movie endearingly preserves that feeling of dread.
B. All of the acting in this movie was excellent. Perhaps not oscar material, but very good nonetheless.
C. Ghost story movies are by definition, fundamentally cliche. Thats why its called a GENRE. Just because a movie doesn't introduce some new twist or effect, does not automatically condemn it to being a 'rotten tomato'. After all, how often does something TRULY original make it to the big screen?
Accept it for what it is- a movie designed to get under your skin. And this movie excels at it.
