Movie Review: The Woman In Black

The Woman In Black (2012)
I’ve seen the play and it was far better than this horrifying exercise in diarrhoea. A man (Daniel Radcliffe) goes to an unfeasibly remote house full of creepy toys and a rocking chair in need of some WD40 where a ghost inveigles her way into casing tragedy. Belatedly the hero devises a rather stupid plan to stop the ghost in between lots of staring. The ghost does down people, Ciaran Hinds lurks and the ending is implausible. This was uneven, lazy, apathetic, farcical and grubby. I don’t care about the ghastly little weasel ‘hero’ and his ineptitude or the seething ghost.
