MOVIE REVIEW: THE WOMAN IN BLACK

Alright, so this movie was awesome. I love thriller/suspense/horror films, and this was a great one. The fact that the movie basically revolves around close ups of Daniel Radcliffe’s face is not even the reason why I loved this! Based on the novel by the same name, the film begins showing leading man Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) and his four year old son as they cope with the death of Kipps’ wife. The plot basically mirrors a classic ghost story, as Kipps ventures to a small town to complete a real estate deal, strange things start happening, children are dying, there is a creepy ghost, etc etc. The cinematography in this film is incredible, the subtleties of the play with light and darkness, shadows and figures, creepy toys, and the creaky old house leave you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Usually with horror flicks, I can figure out what’s going on by the time I’m about halfway through the movie, but with this movie, I had no clue. The entire time I was watching, I was dying to know what the secrets were and what was going on. Go see this movie for sure. The only problem with this movie was that the whole time I was just thinking: Go see this movie! xox Miranda
