Last week we were given a scary trailer for The Woman In Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter). This week we have an even scarier, animated poster and a new trailer, just in time for Halloween.
The tagline for this ghost story, based on a novel by Susan Hill, is “What did they see?” The poster, which can be seen here, embraces this phrase as a creepy figure appears in the background and follows your mouse pointer. As if we weren’t scared enough, there’s a new trailer that you can watch below as well.
Radcliffe plays the role of a young lawyer in the 1900s who travels to a remote village where he encounters the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance on a small English town. On further exploration into the village’s secrets he learns that children there routinely die under mysterious circumstances, and begins to encounter fearful visions of a female figure draped in black.
The Woman In Black also stars Ciarán Hinds (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs), Mary Stockley, and Liz White (TV’s The Crimson Petal and the White) and is set to be released in the US on 3rd February, 2012.
You can see the new trailer below, and the animated poster here.
