The Woman In Black (Wise, 1989)


"A spine-chilling ghost story."

Herbert Wise's The Woman in Black may not have a significant reputation, but to consider its obscurity as an indication of its power to scare would be a terrible mistake. I'm in the thick of trying to cram as many horror films into the last few days of Shocktober as possible, so I don't have the time to write a more elaborate review, but I will say this, there is a scene in this film that frightened me more than any scene in any horror film I have seen in a long, long time. More thoughts coming soon...
