Rated: PG-13

I really liked 'The Woman In Black' and I think a lot of people don't like it because it stars Daniel Radcliffe. It's hard for an actor to be successful after being a child star and he is no exception. All of his fame comes from years of work in the Harry Potter films. That being said I think he did an amazing job of distinguishing himself as an adult actor and in a completely new genre of film. For a movie that is rated PG-13 I thought that the Woman In Black was awesome!

Like I said earlier, it stars Daniel Radcliffe. He is set out to this house where he has to go through all of this woman's belongings. No one in the town will go there and they throw everything they can at him to keep him away from the house. While at the house a lot of creepy and unexplainable things happen and they just get more and more intense. Back in town things get more heated and fatal! The movie isn't overly scary although it does have it's moments. I think the storyline was very well done and the acting it pretty good too.

I am happy to have 'The Woman In Black' as part of my ever growing collection of horror films. While it may not hold all the normal thrills and chills that most people have come to expect it can still hold it's own. With a good storyline, good acting, a few scares and a great cast I'd have to give 'The Woman In Black' a 5/5 and recommend that everyone see it!

My Rating: 5/5

  1. I can only agree with one part of this review...Daniel Radcliffe was great in his first film outside of the Harry Potter films. Unfortunately for me I was unimpressed with this film. I felt that the trailers releast way too much of the scary and left nothing for the actual viewing of the film. Then there were the predictable events that occurred. Sorry, this film was a HUGE disappointment for me.
