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.
