  • Summary: If you’re looking for nail-biting horror and suspense, this isn’t the ticket. But it is a nicely filmed atmospheric study in the Gothic.

The Woman in Black Review

DoBlu
12 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Woman in Black will run itself ground in rather short time, a film clinging to genre familiarity for many of its chills and dreadfully long stretches of quiet. It seems to think that it’s scary as Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) wanders the detailed halls of a spooky mansion, but it’s not. Too many of the supposed jump scares are prefaced with additional jump scares, yet even those are predictable.

  • Conclusion: Breathing new life into the atmospheric classics of Hammer Films, 'The Woman in Black' takes its time in building the proper mood before delivering some spine-tingling frights. From director James Watkins and writer Jane Goldman adapting Susan Hill's novel, the movie is a great deal of fun, returning to stylish elegance over a constant barrage of jump scares and sure to please those familiar with classic horror.

The Woman in Black (2012)

  • Conclusion: The Woman in Black falls for genre convention hook, line, and sinker. But it maneuvers through all of those recycled areas with the precision of a luxury automobile, purring and making its turns on a dime. But for as well as it gets there, the destination is nothing of particular interest. The ride is fine and the scenery is pretty -- that counts for quite a bit -- but there's nothing more to the experience.

The Woman In Black

Cinema Blend

  • Excerpt: Harry Potter is dead. Well, not really, but the character’s time has come to an end, which means that the moment has come for star Daniel Radcliffe to begin his post-wizarding career. He’s begun that path with the horror film The Woman in Black and while it is a surprisingly effective scarefest, it does have one significant flaw: Radcliffe’s age. The story centers on Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) a lawyer and widower with a young son.

AV Club
2 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Daniel Radcliffe has spent most of his cinematic career battling supernatural forces of one sort or another, so in some respects, The Woman In Black , Radcliffe’s first film role since graduating Hogwarts and leaving Harry Potter behind, is only a baby step away from the familiar for him.
