Get the crap scared out of you in this Woman in Black preview

Harry Potter sure has grown up hasn't he. Not her, the guy below.

I barely recognized Daniel Radcliffe in this full-length preview for Hammer's new The Woman in Black, but that could also be because I was too busy shitting my pants over how creepy it looks.

Excuse the vulgarity, but we tell it like it is here in The Basement. And James Watkins's telling of the classic British ghost story looks way scary. But we like 'em way scary, don't we? Yes. We do.

The plot has Radcliffe playing a young lawyer who travels to a remote English village to organize a recently deceased client's papers. Once there, he discovers the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance. It's bad scoobies from there.

The image above is from the 1989 TV version of the story, which was originally a novel by Susan Hill. This telling hits theatres in the U.S. on Feb. 3 and will likely get a wide release, which is good because I'd actually venture out to see it.

Now turn off the lights, crank the speakers, and watch this mother . . .


  1. Okay... That LAST shot of the window... AWESOME!

    Gotta see gotta see gotta see!

  2. Yeah. Looks like one remake that may prove to be just AS good, if not better than the original... of course, I found you can't go too far wrong with Hammer Films in general. LOL
