Audience Reviews for The Woman in Black

  • Sep 16, 2016
    Really didn't expect to like this, but I did. Really creepy once it gets going and I loved the ending.

    Daniel Radcliffe leads the cast in the atmospheric horror-thriller The Woman in Black. After being sent to a small town to assess an estate, a young lawyer starts to see a mysterious woman in black that is said to be a vengeful spirit that kills children. The writing is pretty strong, and does a good job at weaving the mystery of who the woman is and how to quell her thirst for vengeance. Additionally, the costumes and sets are especially well-done and help to create a creepy and foreboding tone. Full of chills, The Woman in Black is a frightening horror film.

    Pretty creepy! Nothing too unexpected, as far as the story goes, but there were some moments that made me jump!

    Could stand Daniel Radcliffe being in it thanks to it's surprisingly taut & jumpy nature. Simple narrative bolstered by a seasoned Cirian Hinds performance
