Even though it utilizes much of the same imagery previously seen in other trailers, this new trailer for The Woman in Black still remains effectively creepy. Hammer Films is seeing quite a resurgence as of late between the numerous comprehensive books released by Titan Publishing and the handful of new horror titles being released on DVD such as The Resident and Wake Wood. Thankfully, the upcoming The Woman in Black will be released in theaters as opposed to straight-to-video. I’m sure having Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, in your film helps. Next year starts off with a scary bang as The Woman in Black haunts theaters starting Feb. 3, 2012. The new trailer for the gothic horror film can be seen below.
In this supernatural thriller Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe), a widowed lawyer whose grief has put his career in jeopardy, is sent to a remote village to sort out the affairs of a recently deceased eccentric. But upon his arrival it soon becomes clear that everyone in the town is keeping a deadly secret. Although the townspeople try to keep Kipps from learning their tragic history, he soon discovers that the house belonging to his client is haunted by the ghost of a woman who is determined to find someone and something she lost…and no one, not even the children, are safe from her vengeance.
