Critics Consensus: The Woman in Black is a Solid Ghost Story
With awards season in full swing, audiences have plenty to choose from at the multiplex, whether it be the Oscar contenders they've missed or a solid trio of new releases. We've got a haunted town (The Woman in Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Ciarán Hinds), a teenage superheroes (Chronicle, starring Dane DeHaan and Alex Russell), and a whale rescue (Big Miracle, starring John Krasinski and Drew Barrymore). What do the critics have to say? Daniel Radcliffe tackles his first major post-Harry Potter in The Woman in Black, and critics say this spooky, atmospheric ghost story conjures up some terrific old-fashioned thrills.

Five Favorite Films with Daniel Radcliffe
"It's actually a thrill to be talking about something else," Daniel Radcliffe chuckles, pausing to consider a question about his new movie The Woman in Black. He is, of course, referring to the ubiquitous presence of a certain blockbuster franchise that has consumed almost half of his life on the planet. Radcliffe was just an untested 11-year-old when cast as the eponymous hero of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone way back in 2001; now, having triumphantly wrapped the series with last year's Deathly Hallows, he's a seasoned 22 and ready to spirit himself into the realm that lies beyond Hogwarts. Audiences will have their chance to see Radcliffe's transformation (and marvel at his dashing new accoutrements) when The Woman in Black opens in theaters this week. In the meantime, we asked him to talk through his all-time five favorite films.
