On this day in film history, The Woman in Black (2012) was released in theaters. This film is notable (among other things) for being the first film starring Daniel Radcliffe after the conclusion of the Harry Potter film series (2001-2011).
Property of Hammer Film Productions
A supernatural horror film, The Woman in Black tells the story of a widowed lawyer named Arthur (Radcliffe) who must travel to a remote village to collect some paperwork from the house of a recently deceased client. Once he arrives, however, he finds himself absorbed in a situation so dark and twisted, he might not make it out alive…(I’m not going to spoil the ending, but you should see it for yourself.)
The film was positively received, as was Radcliffe’s performance. The score for this film was composed by Marco Beltrami, and was also well-received. The soundtrack was released on March 12th, 2012. I personally don’t care much for horror films, but if you enjoy supernatural horror, this is likely a film for you.
