The Woman in Black is not the best ghost story ever made, but it is one of the purest and most effective to hit cinemas in quite a long time. That in itself makes this a film worth cherishing, goose bumps and all.
If you're looking for nail-biting horror and suspense, this isn't the ticket. But it is a nicely filmed atmospheric study in the Gothic. Mostly, "The Woman in Black" shows that Radcliffe will have no problem shedding his Potter image.
The Woman In Black is not a bad deal for those who are easily scared or/and haven't seen many ghost movies. It's well acted, nicely photographed, the story makes sense, and the conclusion will be satisfactory to most.
'The Woman in Black' is a solid British ghost story in which Daniel Radcliffe bids adieu to his Harry Potter persona while his character of Arthur Kipps wonders whether he's bidding farewell to his senses.
