When someone says of modern horror films that they "don't make 'em like they used to," point them to The Woman in Black, an excellent, old school ghost story. 

Starring Daniel Radcliffe, the movie revolves around a lawyer who travels to a village where a ghost called the Woman in Black is believed to be haunting the locals. A lot of the movie is him investigating that, creeping around the house as something dangerous lurks in the shadows.

The movie was produced by Hammer Films, known for some classic horror like the 1960s Dracula and Frankenstein franchises. That makes sense when watching the movie, because it has a very old fashion style to it. It's PG-13 and doesn't really have any gore or much violence at all, but instead it's all about suspense, eerie imagery, and yes, a whole bunch of jump scares.

This is a film with an interesting mystery, a terrifying antagonist and some really chilling sequences. The Woman in Black isn't about to revolutionize the genre, and it's a pretty typical haunted house story, but it's one of the most effective ones of this decade so far. 


Lover of horror movies, liker of other things. Your favorite Friday the 13th says a lot about you as a person, and mine is Part IV: The Final Chapter.
