A trailer for James Watkins’ The Woman in Black has been released and it promises a spooky watching experience. The film is based on Susan Hill’s 1983 novel and stars Daniel Radcliffe as Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer who travels to the remote small town of Crythin Gifford to settle the affairs of Alice Drablow, a recently deceased elderly widow who owns a dilapidated mansion. He soon discovers that a vengeful ghost is terrorizing the locals. When those closest to him become threatened by the woman in black, he is forced to find a way to break the cycle of terror.
When you think of Daniel Radcliffe, you immediately think of Harry Potter. It remains to be seen how successful he will be away from the franchise he has been associated with for so long. However, this looks like a great start, spooky dolls, creepy little girl narration and all. The cast also includes Ciaran Hinds, Janet McTeer, Liz White, and Alisa Khazanova.
The Woman in Black opens in theaters February 3, 2012. Click over to Yahoo! Movies to see this creepy trailer in HD or watch the embed below:
