The Woman in Black brings nothing new to the table but it makes better use of the generic ghost tricks than most films of this ilk.

Prepare for some chills and thrills if you're heading to check out Daniel Radcliffe's post-Potter debut.

It's bracing to see that vintage horror still surpasses the new digital-dread hokum.
October 27, 2014
The balance between edge-of-vision shadows and DanRad's screen-centre face puts the care into scares.

September 25, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
August 22, 2012
A thin movie on every level, not particularly frightening, and a disappointing use of all the talent involved. ... No points for Gryffindor.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
May 20, 2012
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.
May 15, 2012
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.
May 10, 2012
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.

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

March 23, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

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