The Woman in Black is an immaculate example of Gothic horror that builds to its climax with the slow purposeful precision of an Edwardian clock.
It has all the ingredients: Isolated marshland, a spectre seeking vengeance for the death of her young child and things that go bump in the night.
This is a quietly shudder-some ghost story capable of chilling the flesh of the most hardened horror fanatic.
Arthur Kipps, a middle-aged solicitor, hires a theatre and the services of a professional actor to help him re-enact and hopefully exorcise a ghostly event that befell him many years earlier with horrifyingly tragic results.
Don’t go alone!
