The Woman in Black

A young, grieving barrister, having recently lost his wife, is sent from London to a country manor which has been the site of several recent suicides, in the hopes of completing the paperwork for its sale. There, he discovers a paranormal being, hellbent on revenge, who may place his own son in jeopardy. "The Woman in Black" is an adequate if routine horror film whose dots can be connected fairly easily early on, and which is notable for its great photography in addition to the ample scares it provides. It also features a nice turn from Daniel Radcliffe in his first post Harry Potter role.
