The Woman in Black (2012) Movie Review
THE WOMAN IN BLACK, A SUPERNATURAL THRILLER
Daniel Radcliffe's The Woman in Black movie is an adaptation of the novel The Woman in Black by Susan Hill.
In The Woman in Black, Radcliffe plays a lawyer who visits an English village to settle the estate of Alice Drablow. As the trailer you can watch here on this page shows, things are not quite ordinary.Let me introduce you to The Woman in Black, Daniel Radcliffe's horror movie and his first movie after the Harry Potter franchise closed. The Woman in Black is a creepy movie, a spooky period drama, perhaps best described as a supernatural thriller...I could hardly wait to see it and held out high hopes that it would be an old-fashioned horror movie rather than a slasher style horror movie. I was not disappointed.
"The most chilling ghost story of our time..."

CAN I READ THE BOOK THE WOMAN IN BLACK?
Written by Susan Hill
The Woman in Black is a young adult novel, a story that according to Amazon "chills the body with foreboding of dark deeds to come, but warms the soul with perceptions and language at once astute and vivid." They go on to compare this book to a Jane Austen ghost story. This book is similar set as it is on an English moor with a hero arriving to look after the estate of Mrs. Drablow. What he finds is not expected and "more sinister and terrifying than any nightmare" and contains many of the items associated with horror stories from a rocking chair in a nurseryto a child's voice heard screaming in the fog.The book is readily available from Amazon:
WHERE CAN I WATCH THE FIRST THE WOMAN IN BLACK MOVIE?
Available on DVD or VHS video tape.
The Woman in Black was made into a movie for television in 1989. That film was well received and is now a somewhat hard-to-find and often expensive movie. Of course, Radcliffe's involvement in the project has brought renewed interest in the first movie, which means extra demand for existing copies of the film.The first The Woman in Black movie stared Adrian Rawlins, Bernard Hepton, David Daker, Pauline Moran and David Ryall. It received extremely flattering Amazon customer reviews with comments like 'old-fashioned suspense and fear' and 'a very creepy ghost story that delivers.' It sounds like an excellent movie and is one that I am determined to see for myself, once I have finished reading the book, of course.
