The Woman in Black Movie 2012

by TerriRexson

The Woman in Black Movie is a gothic horror movie starring Daniel Radcliffe. It's based on a book by Susan Hill.

The Woman in Black

The Woman in Black is a movie adaption of Susan Hill's horror novel. You'll find psychological scariness here, in a gothic style. The movie is set in England in the Edwardian era. The Woman in Black is a traditional ghost story and full of suspense.

The Woman in Black - The Story

The Woman in Black was originally a horror novel by English author Susan Hill and was published in 1983. It was adapted into a stage play and has had a very long and successful run in London's West End. See The Woman in Black Stage Play. The film is based on the book, not the play. 

The Woman in Black is a gothic-style ghost story. The main character is Arthur Kipps, a young solicitor who has to attend the funeral of an old lady. It's at the funeral that he first sees a woman in black. And much spookiness follows ...

Don't be expecting a happy ending to this one. If you don't already know the story then you may want to wait until after you've watched the movie to read the book, unless you always prefer to read the original novel before watching a movie adaptation.

A movie tie-in edition of The Woman in Black by Susan Hill has been released. I think the movie will encourage a lot of people to read the book. 

The Woman in Black Cast

The lead role in the Woman in Black is the solicitor, Arthur Kipps. Arthur Kipps is played by Daniel Radcliffe in the movie version. 

Yes, it's the Harry Potter star. And very appropriate to cast a young English actor for this role. 

Janet McTeer plays Mrs Daily. McTeer is a well known stage actress.

Woman in Black Movie Rating

The Woman in Black has received a 12A rating in the UK and PG-13 in the US. 

This is a psychological thriller and certainly scary. The ratings mean that this is a movie that can be watched by young teenagers if their parents feel it is suitable for them. 

Teenagers are often fascinated by horror movies and this is much more subtle that a gory horror movie. 

This will make a good first grown up horror movie for teens to watch.

The Woman in Black is directed by British director James Watkins.

Watkins has previously directed the thriller Eden Lake.

Having now seen this, as a long-term fan of the story, I recommend it too. :D

Somehow my tolerance or ability to cope with thrillers seems to have declined as I've gotten older - I just don't feel like I want to put myself through it anymore! However I saw The Women in Black in the West End a few years ago and it was such an excellent show - I think I could easily be tempted to watch this film version. Thanks for a great review!
