The Woman in Black Review


A young lawyer travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals.

The Woman in Black had a lot of expectations to do well behind it especially with Daniel Radcliffe as the leading man. Harry Potter is doing a horror movie and so quick after wrapping up the last Harry Potter movie. Well, Radcliffe simply nailed it. He played the part well, and I lose the feeling of hey look it’s Harry Potter. No, I felt like he was the character as it should be.

The Woman in Black had a great beginning with the middle evening out, but the ending lacked something in my opinion. Not trying to spoil the ghostly horror movie for those of you who did not watch it already so I know I am vague here.

Radcliffe plays a father which when you see it is believable. He goes to wrap up some lose work on a house by getting paperwork together and what not. He is then haunted by the woman in black and goes to great lengths to figure out why she is haunting the house and being accused of killing numerous children in the small town close to the house. This is all great and beautifully told/acted, but when it came to the ending scenes, I was like I thought it was going another way. Don’t get me wrong because the ending still fits into the tone of the movie.

Final thoughts are that you should see this movie as it was pretty good and well worth watching. I believe this movie is also available currently on Netflix right now so watch it now.
