The Woman in Black.

After all of the hypes from this film, it was pretty disappointing. 

Having Daniel Radcliffe as he main actor swayed me towards thinking about Harry Potter. I was half expecting one of the other actors to turn round and say 'you're a wizard Harry' but unluckily that didn't happen. It might have just made the plot a little more interesting. 

After nearly 2 hours of watching the film and to have not jumped once, for myself that meant it was a complete and utter fail as a scary film. I literally jump at the smallest things, and personally I think that most of the 'scary' parts are in the trailer itself. 

The setting on this film however is beautiful, yet so predictable. All of these ghostly goings on in a small countryside/seaside town, with a house surrounded by water at night... very predictable. 

However what I will say is that the film is a credit to Radcliffe, he does show another side to his acting abilities in this film, a more serious tone to the Potter collection. But he had a lot to live up to, with his acting in Harry Potter being next to none. 

If only Ron and Hermiony could have popped up for a little while to say hello. :)
