The Woman In Black [2012]

Loosely based on the classic horror novel:

So is this like Men in Black, but with sexy ladies instead?

EDIT: Watched the trailer, I'm kinda dissapointed... Where are the Aliens? No Aliens -> not watching.

Based on the trailer, I am very excited. Sufficiently spooky premise, nicely photographed, with an actual mature looking Daniel Radcliffe, and scary kids to boot. Added to that, the trailer doesn't give away too much of the narrative and seemingly none of the big horror scenes. This looks like it could be a very fun gothic horror film.

My joke post aside, Daniel Radcliffe is looking pretty good here. He might be able to put Harry Potter behind him with this and avoid the fate of other Teen stars or being typecast.

That kind of crossed my mind as I read the title as well

I agree that this looks pretty good so far from the trailer. It's a refreshing change from all those adrenaline-filled , non-stop screaming, and suspenseful music types of Hollywood horror movies. The atmosphere I get from the trailer is more suppressed; a kind of subtle fear creeping into your mind. I'll be looking forward to seeing this and NOT Paranormal Activity 3

If this is the same story as what is playing in the theatre in Convent Garden In London for years, I've seen it twice then and seeing it on stage was scary enough ><;;

Wouldn't pay money for it but on DVD time, wouldn't mind watching it to see what's changed for the movie version now...

Not usually a big fan of horror movies, but the lure of Daniel Radcliffe and the fact that the trailer is so well put together intrigues me. I might just break my rule and go check this out, at least when it's released on DVD.

Tbh, I have no doubt for those who produced and played in this movie except for Daniel Radcliffe. Can he successfully portrait the former husband & father character in this movie? As a genuine movie fan though, I DO hope that he is succeed and the movie turns out great.

Same thing that crossed my mind when I read the title

Hmmm, never watched these types of horror movies often. Mostly get caught watching the screaming, predictable suspension type movies that just jumps out of you to give you a quick scare. But not that much constant freight, the trailer for this looks good though.

The trailer's giving me mixed opinions. It looks like it could be a very solid psychological horror film that leads to a good ending, but in order to make the trailer more exciting, they showed me the potential for lots of cheap jump scares too. A good horror movie doesn't rely on jump scares but rather keeping the audience in constant fear, so I certainly hope this can deliver. Haven't seen Radcliffe in a while either, should be interesting.
