First Trailer for Daniel Radcliffe's Ghost Story, The Woman in Black

Daniel Radcliffe might be done playing Harry Potter, but his next movie still plays to his supernatural strengths. Watch the first teaser for The Woman in Black, about a man and one pissed-off ghost.


Seems like director James Watkins is shooting for a simple ghost story. Here's the official synopsis: "A young lawyer travels to a remote village to organize a recently deceased client's papers, where he discovers the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance." And it's based on the acclaimed novel by Susan Hill, which has been a hit stage play since 1989, adapted by Quatermass creator Nigel Kneale. (Hill discusses the novel's origins and how she set about creating an original ghost story here.)

The Woman In Black will be in theaters October 28th.

I'm not sure why, but this scene from the British tv adaptation just scared the muthalovin' hell out me when I first saw it. It's not as effective now that I know what's coming, but that original fright is the bar I'm setting for the Radcliffe version to be a good successor.
