The Woman in Black (2012) Review:

Woman in Black was a movie that created a buzz mainly because of two things: the presence of Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), and the fact that it was produced by the Hammer. Unfortunately, such features do not make a great movie.

Daniel Radcliffe does a great job in the film, not unforgettable, but great. The problem is more the movie itself. I found it a very basic “boooh” ghost movie, with a lot of (predictable) jumpy moments and cheap scares. Thereee are a few interesting aspects of this movie. The initial mystery, with the disappearance of the children, succeeded quite well at immersing me into the story. The atmosphere, with this early 20th-century town and the all gothic appearance that goes with it, is pretty and kind of creepy. However, something failed at convinced me and dragging me into the movie: the woman in black herself. She is really the caricature of the average ghost…and she does whatever you would expect a ghost to do. So it is not a bad movie, it just terribly lacks surprise. You’ll see nothing in that film that you haven’t seen before in another ghost film. From that, I leave it to you to decide.
