Do you believe in ghosts? It’s the question that the new UK quad for Daniel Radcliffe’s “The Woman in Black” is posing. And, based on the terrified expression on Radcliffe’s face in the poster, it seems like his character Arthur Kipps certainly does.
This is the “Harry Potter” star’s first film role post-The Boy Who Lived, and it’s a nice sight to see only Radcliffe’s name on the poster. While fans might be intrigued by the concept of the movie, I’d be hard-pressed to argue that the draw for “The Woman in Black” is anything but seeing what the 22-year-old actor is capable of.
The recently-released trailer for “The Woman in Black” also flaunted how terrifying the movie is likely going to be.
“The Woman in Black” follows Kipps, a lawyer and a father, as he visits a small English town to deal with the estate of the deceased Alice Drablow. But, as the trailer shows us, there’s a bit more than meets the eye going on in the sleepy little countryside town, and it quickly becomes clear that Kipps has bitten off more than he can chew.
From the creepy “blank-faced girls in matching dresses” chanting a terrifying nursery rhyme — “What she wants is unknown, but she always comes back: the specter of darkness, The Woman in Black” — to the chill-inducing appearance of the titular spectre, this is a movie that this Movies Blog writer is both anticipating and dreading at the same time. Fortunately, I have until “The Woman in Black” is released on February 3, 2012 to prepare myself.
