The Woman in Black
Thats an intriguing setup for a traditional horror film, and for a while, it looks as if Watkins will make something of it.
You wouldnt want to be in the theater next to this movie in a multiplex.
These Dan ites can be assured that the handsome, self possessed 22 year old actor delivers nicely, conveying a lot in a performance that requires an e ..
The film is wonderfully atmospheric and full of little frights, but its overall impact is only glancing.
Its the kind of movie that feels two hours plus long, when its actually only 95 minutes.At least the performances are good.

God, how I wanted The Woman in Black to be good!.There are few genres as endlessly satisfying as a really good ghost movie (The Uninvited, The Others, ..
Radcliffe is solid rather than spectacular, but that serves the film: Kipps is a tight lipped sort, though it never prevents us from rooting for him.
Only a bribed coachman will take Arthur there, on a winding road that will be subsumed by muddy tides come nighttime, and Watkins conveys the uneasine ..
Goldmans newly imagined ending might be too moist for some tastes, but it fits with the movies central emotional arc.
The anxiety builds and builds until you can hardly bear it as Kipps edges further into the shadows.You will likely spend a great deal of the running t ..
Though Woman never rises above its status as a traditional genre thriller, thats perfectly fine.
Ny Daily News
Dont be reassured by the 12A certificate: theres barely a glimpse of anything scary in this film, but thats precisely what makes it so terrifying.
But without a good story, just a lot of boo moments, the film never gets its most important ingredient right.
It certainly isnt a conventional happy ending, yet it offers more lightness and hope than the previous 90 minutes.In short, its the perfect way to con ..
The Woman in Black has lovely period atmosphere. Unfortunately, it doesnt have much else besides atmosphere.

The Globe And Mail
The remote setting in boggy northern England is ideal for the spine tingling tale, and the film is well paced for maximum thrills and chills.
And the good news is that the former Harry Potter carries the film quite capably.
Its ultimately the absence of both a compelling plot and well developed characters that spells The Woman in Black: Angel of Deaths downfall, with Harp ..
I dont fault the movie for its uncomplicated, campfire story esque plot, which I think is charming.
Eric Ds Nider
Old fashioned and old school, it makes a convincing case for life after death and, for Radcliffe, life after Harry Potter.

If the story is laid out none too subtly, its straightforward purity is, finally, its greatest strength.
Their dread of the manor is based on more than just its geography.

A disappointing post Potter debut from Radcliffe, barely breathing in this musty, creaky chiller.
The Woman in Black isnt especially scary, but it keeps you on edge, and without the usual vivisectionist imagery.
The New York Times
This is an effective genre exercise, if not an especially inspired one.
(The mechanism here is central to the story and is never quite clear.
Hammer reached exalted heights in the 1950s and 60s for its Gothic take on classic texts like Frankenstein and Dracula.
Its a good old fashioned ghost story, dressed up in morbidly Edwardian drag.
Director James Watkins piles on the old fashioned Hammer Horror atmosphere, all fog and mist and shadows, but a few jump out of your seat startles and ..

A creaky haunted house story thats strong on creepy atmosphere but woefully deficient in the scare department.

Is it a perfect movie.Nah, but as a horror fan, I felt satisfied.
Hammer films walked a fine line between adult sophistication and supernatural hokum.
But we dont need any more prematurely old men in movies about lost souls.Give us jazz hands.
Susan Grangers review of The Woman in Black (Hammer Films/CBS Films) Hammer horror is back!
Horror fans may find the picture too old school but it was nightmarishly creepy for me.
Boring and sedentary, not to mention only occasionally coherent, this creaking door mystery is not much of a vehicle to display young Mr. Radcliffes r ..
That certain Hammer wildness may be missing, but this movie is fun enough.
This Victorian period horror tale is refreshing in that it makes no bones about what it is about delivering gothic horror thrills pure and simple.
The story is actually a compelling one, but the execution is patronizing.
Theres nothing new or unexpected about The Woman in Black, but its still a satisfying exercise in old fashioned spookiness. Josh Bell

Director Watkins and company are masters at getting under our skin and straight into our nightmares.
The directors apparent blindness to the epic banality of her subjects suggests that the whole project is one royally misguided mess.
Haunting of Eel House Daniel Radcliffe is up to his neck in ghosts in the doggedly old fashioned The Woman in Black.
Its all about atmosphere, and thats a refreshing trend from most cookie cutter mainstream PG 13 horror.
