Woman in Black Movie Reviews
User reviews on Woman in Black
I had high hopes for this film because the previews looked really good and i love Daniel Radcliffe but I was a bit disappointed with this film and I do not think it is worth the price of the movie ticket. The film looks great and the atmosphere is definitely creepy and uncomfortable but the film felt really long and all of the scares came from something jumping into the screen and that gets old after about ten minutes. Daniel Radcliffe did not really use his talent as an actor because all he had to do was look scared, he barely even spoke. Overall, I did not have a good time watching this film.
I do not care what critics say, i enjoyed this film and I think it is worth seeing in the theaters. The film looked great and the atmosphere was extremely creepy and tense. There were couple scenes in the movie that made me sit on the edge of my seat and i sure did avoid dark places after seeing this film. The film feels old fashioned but I did not mind that and it worked very well for this film. I thought that Radcliffe was really good in this film and I think he nailed the character. Overall, I had a great time watching this movie and i think most people will enjoy it as well.
I do not think this film is worth seeing in the theaters but when it comes out on DVD you might want to take a look. The film looks gorgeous and it has a very distinctive atmosphere but that is not enough for a horror film. Most of the scares are old fashioned and might scare a 10 year old but an older audience will most likely be disappointed and quite frankly bored, at least i was. The film is slow and silent and Radcliffe barely talks which is a shame because he is a great actor and I can not wit to see him in a better role than this one. I think that Radcliffe was not challenged in this role at all and it is a real shame. Overall, I do not think this film is worth the price of a movie ticket.
It has been quite a while since a horror film worth going to see has released ... So why on EARTH would you rate what appeared to be a good scare flick PG 13 ?!?!!!! I am neither joking nor exadurating when I say that the theater was 75% full and at least 50 to 60% 13 - 14 year old GIRLS.
I could not honestly say whether this movie was worth your time or not ... Slow in the beginning but intriguing as it progresses, however with every music tone change, every slight movement, or for no apparent reason at all there was a theater FILLED with shrill screeching constant chatter etc ... Completely desensitized to any intended thrills the film might have had in store. Completely un-enjoyable .... We finally got up and left. We have passes to see another film but I am dubious given the managements complete and utter lack of concern ... I would say that this film should have been rated R or NC-17 if for no other reason than becaus 13 year old girls have ZERO respect for other people and lack the maturity required to see a film like this in a public venue.
AVOID RED ROCK STATION THEATERS if you wish to enjoy a $11 movie and $10 soda and popcorn in a quiet setting; you'll pay for it but won't get it.
TOTAL fail on the part of those tasked with rating movies as well as those tasked with ensuring customer satisfaction while viewing the production.
I thought this film was pretty good and if you are looking for a scary film to see I would definitely go with this one. Production design is absolutely awesome in this film and it does most of the job because it creates a very unsettling and spooky atmosphere. Most of the scares are old school and come from things jumping into the frame suddenly but i did not mind that at all, i was genuinely scared couple of times. The film is kind of slow in the beginning but it gets going later and by the end you are completely hooked, well at least I was. Overall, it is worth the price of a movie ticket if you want to see a horror film.
This is a scary film about a young lawyer who travels to a remote village and discovers that an angry ghost is terrrozing the locals, the film is directed by James Watkins and stars Daniel Radcliffe, Janet McTeer and Ciarán Hinds. I love scary film and I am usually disappointed after I see them but i still go and see every scary movie that comes out, I guess I am silly like that. This film was not disappointing, I loved it and I recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film has a great period atmosphere and it overall feels very creepy and scary. The film relies on the old fashioned scare tactics of squeaky doors and dark shadows and I absolutely loved that. Radcliffe barely speaks in this film and any other actor would find that pretty challenging but he did a great job with it. After seeing this film I definitely could not be in the dark for at least a week and that is the best review for a scary film in my opinion.
The Woman In Black is old school. REALLY old school. Unlike a lot of horror movies these days, that substitute gore for actual scares, this movie is like a haunted house, all old and creaking, with unseen creeps and things that jump out at you. Daniel Radcliffe stars in this movie, and since the first Harry Potter, he's really grown as an actor. His performance here is very good, and proves he'll have a career beyond that franchise. His character, Arthur, is a widowed father in Victorian England about to lose his job. He is tasked to go to a gloomy village, where the residents are none too happy to see him, and close out the affairs of a deceased woman. There, he sees the title character, which is bad news, because a village child seems to die every time she's spotted. This leads to a lot of spooky set pieces. I don't want to give too much away, but the movie has that nice Gothic tone that been missing from horror films for a long time. Director James Watkins knows that some fog, or a creaky floorboard, or a loud knock can scare just as much as someone being disemboweled, maybe more. This film gave me the creeps, in a good way.
