Default 'The Woman in Black' - High-Def Digest Review

E has reviewed 'The Woman in Black.' He says this is a terribly enjoyable and scary fright-fest that recalls the classic atmospherics of Hammer Films Studios. Read on for all the details...

This was definitely one of the best horror movies to come along in some time. Nothing in years has had my wife hiding behind her hands like this movie did, the build up of suspense and long lasting scenes of dread and atmosphere really elevate this movie to one of the best PG-13 frightfests you can find. Of course if you are of the younger crowd this might not be your type of film compared to whats usually out there, but if you give it a shot and let it pull you into its world, I think you will be pleasantly surprised, this will be a definite own for me

this movie is creepy but not at all scary, IMO. I prefer creepy than scary, btw.

This movie had some good scares in it and was fun. Although my biggest problem was the 2nd Act of the film really made me think to myself "Are you serious?"

Spoiler
He hears a noise downstairs...he walks downstairs and gets scared. He hears a noise upstairs....he walks upstairs and gets scared. Rinse and Repeat for the whole 2nd Act.


Besides that I enjoyed the film and would highly recommend it to people who like ghost stories!

It was a good movie, but nothing worth owning or even watching a second time.

Seconded! There were numerous times when hands came in handy. Some truly creepy scenes.

It is just a shame that this release does not seemed to have generated a release for the superior 1989 original.

This is a remake? Is it available on Blu-ray? I don't find this version to be scary or creepy at all.

Yes it certainly is a remake. The original was a slow burn with some genuinely scary and unsettling scenes. Scripted by none other than Nigel Kneale (the creator of Quatermass) too. Unfortunately the author, Susan Hill withdrew the DVD rights back in 2000 and the just released US DVD was withdrawn with some copies making it out to shops etc. Used editions are now in the hundreds of $$$$$ because Susan Hill steadfastly has refused to allow any further releases on optical media.
