The balance between edge-of-vision shadows and DanRad's screen-centre face puts the care into scares.

Scene after endless scene of Radcliffe roaming the hallways of a spooky gothic house seeking the source of creepy noises and phantasmic movements is not compelling enough for a two-hour film.

The Woman in Black successfully plumbs the atmospheric vibe of The Haunting but is even more disturbing because all its bad stuff happens to little kids.

Whether or not The Woman in Black provides those chills is entirely up to whatever particular type of creep-out sends shivers down your spine.

A gothic horror tale that studiously avoids any modern gimmicks in favour of classically themed motifs, with a neat twist to Hammer its point home.

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.

It is a work that transcends the genre whilst not skimping on any of the skin-crawling thrills that the premise promises to deliver.

Radcliffe holds it together with a virtually wordless, but still expressive performance.

Packed with atmosphere, this old-fashioned but deftly told ghost story delivers ample chills and thrills.

It's a good clean, very British romp - the kind of horror movie you could take your mum to. As long as you're not hoping to be scared to death, you'll have a great time, too.

Radcliff, in his first adult role since the Harry Potter franchise concluded, does an excellent job holding the film together, grief pouring from his expressive features.

The Woman in Black feels like a simpler and more intimate horror of yesteryear.It's well produced, acted and written and for fans of vintage horror, you'll definitely be entertained.

Splendidly delivers the old-school, hocus-pocus goods, reminding us that sometimes a bone-chilling movie scare can be frightfully, fitfully fun.

The bottom line on The Woman in Black is that it is a very spooky movie. Old-fashioned and old school, it makes a convincing case for life after death and, for Radcliffe, life after Harry Potter.

The filmmakers understand the simple power of ghosts, and they deliver a tense and chilling spook-fest.

A boa notícia é que Radcliffe faz um trabalho eficiente em um longa que compreende que os arrepios duram mais que os sustos; a má é que o roteiro problemático compromete bastante o resultado final.

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 moody, beautifully composed production raises it above the norm.

'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.

There are enough reasons to like [the film] and virtually no reasons to love it.
