From everything I’ve seen of James Watkins’ “The Woman in Black” so far, I’ve always gotten that “classic ghost story” vibe from it. Sure, it’s bound to have plenty of shock scares (what doesn’t nowadays?), but I think atmosphere and things that go bump in the night may also have their places in the film. In any case, find out how they went about doing the movie in a new featurette called “Creating a Classic Ghost Story”.
Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe), a widowed lawyer whose grief has put his career in jeopardy, is sent to a remote village to sort out the affairs of a recently deceased eccentric. But upon his arrival, it soon becomes clear that everyone in the town is keeping a deadly secret. Although the townspeople try to keep Kipps from learning their tragic history, he soon discovers that the house belonging to his client is haunted by the ghost of a woman who is determined to find someone and something she lost… and no one, not even the children, are safe from her vengeance.
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Ciarán Hinds, Janet McTeer, Shaun Dooley, Alisa Khazanova, Liz White, Alexia Osborne, Aoife Doherty, Sidney Johnston, and classically scaring you February 3, 2012.
