Not the most inventive thriller/mystery you'll ever see but damn if Blair doesn't carry this movie with her superb performance of a woman suffering from agoraphobia. Don't expect much going in and you may just be pleasantly surprised.

Fantastic performances but not much of a story. I love that every time I see Ben Foster in a movie I have to squint and go, "Is that Ben Foster?" and why aren't we throwing Oscars at him?

The Woman in Black

I'm a hard sell for ghost story horror movies, they tend to rely too heavily on jumpy scares and bombastic music, seeming to forget that less is more and quiet is creepy. The Woman in Black is no exception. While the atmosphere is dripping, perhaps overly so, with the ghostly and ghastly feel, and while all of the players seem to be so pale and scared they look like ghosts themselves, it doesn't stop this story from being formulaic and a little drab. Having been a huge fan of the book the film would have benefited to stick more closely with the elegance of keeping the story simple. Sometimes when you don't try to impress your audience, you end up knocking their socks off. Unfortunately this movie adaptation of an unforgettably scary book, will end up being completely forgettable.

Deeply disturbing and really well done. It takes a special movie to have you muttering, "Oh god that's gross... I love her shoes!" in all the same breath.
