Time for a book club movie night! The Woman in Black by Susan Hill is now a major motion picture starring Daniel Radcliffe as Arthur Kipps, an up-and-coming London lawyer whose routine business trip takes a horrifying turn. Soon after his arrival at the remote Crythin Gifford, Kipps 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. The movie opens on Friday, February 3rd. Below, watch video of the cast and creative team discussing how this classic ghost story was adapted to the screen.
