Daniel Radcliffe has shed himself of his Harry Potter persona. After a successful run on the Great White Way in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, the actor proved he can sing and dance with the best of Broadway. As the trailer to his first post-Potter role hits in The Woman in Black, that Potter persona drifts further back into history.
The Woman in Black follows Radcliffe as a young attorney who ventures into a remote village on holiday only to discover it is being haunted by a ghost bent on terrorizing all who gets in her way.
Judging by the trailer, The Woman in Black is one creepy flick. It culls from many of the classic creepy moments in horror movie history and so visually, it looks like a winner. For example, who can’t recall a horror film where the evil creeps up behind the star while they stare at a mirror/window or what have you? Why have we seen that cinematic move in horror movies before? Because it works! Radcliffe and The Woman in Black is no different and the trailer has our interest peaked.
