As a stand alone horror movie, not bad. However, if you've read the book, you know how much they changed the characters and the plot line in the film screenplay. In the Featurette making of "The Woman in Black", Sue Hill, the original author, is given some screen time, and seems to support the movie. Frankly, I was surprised she let them put her name on it, much less supported the result.

I do understand book to screenplay limitations, especially on pacing and exposition, but since the book itself is pretty short, almost a novella as opposed to a full book, there really was no excuse to make so many changes.

If you read only the book, you'll likely really love it. If you watch only the movie, you'll likely love it. But in my estimation, they are almost two different entities. I will give my nod to the plot line and characters in the book, I thought them superior to the screenplay.

Old-fashioned ghost story set in Victorian England, starring Daniel "Harry Potter" Radcliffe as a recently widowed lawyer assigned to arrange the selling of a secluded, creepy old estate ... naturally, he soon learns that the house, and the surrounding village, both harbor a dark secret that involves the local children.

Slow-burning flick that takes a while to get goin' but the last half is excellent. Moody, dark and creepy stuff with lots of atmosphere.
