The Woman in Black is a classic ghost story by Susan Hill: a chilling tale about a menacing spectre haunting a small English town. The book has been adapted into a major motion picture starring Daniel Radcliffe and is slated to open in the United States on Feburary 3, 2012.
Radcliffe will play Arthur Kipps, an up-and-coming London solicitor who is sent to Crythin Gifford—a faraway town in the windswept salt marshes beyond Nine Lives Causeway—to attend the funeral and settle the affairs of a client, Mrs. Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh House. Kipps’s routine business trip quickly takes a horrifying turn when he finds himself haunted by a series of mysterious sounds and images—a rocking chair in a deserted nursery, the eerie sound of a pony and trap, a child’s scream in the fog, and, most terrifying of all, a ghostly woman dressed all in black.
