The Woman in Black

The Woman in Black(2012)

Super moody and atmospheric (though maybe too much), and there's some great cinematography and set design, but the script leaves a lot of sports where it's basically just Ratcliffe chasing down jump scares up until the third act, when it's just non-stop freakiness. Still, Ratcliffe is at least good enough to prove that he may have a post-Potter film career ahead of him, and Ciaran Hinds manages to serve as a good partner for him. Despite that, though, the film mostly just plods beautifully along in a well-acted way until the final surprise at the end.
