I’m glad to see Daniel Radcliffe aka Harry Potter moving beyond the franchise that made him so well known into other movie roles. It’s clear from the trailer that he is all grown up, but that isn’t what has me a little meh about his newest movie The Woman in Black.
The rundown (courtesy of IMBD):
Young lawyer Arthur Kipps travels to a remote village to organize a recently deceased client’s papers, where he encounters the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance.
I love a good scary movie and I have seen my fair share! That’s why when I look at this one, I’m seeing a lot of the same overused cliches. True, you can’t invent the wheel but you can certainly add your own spin on them (no pun intended! Honest!). One thing that I loved about Insidious was the fact that the people, not the house that was haunted and totally avoided the whole Poltergeist-possessed medium.
Unless there is a super creative twist to this story, I’ll probably catch this on Redbox if anything, just to see how Radcliffe embraces his new role.
What do you guys think?? Is it worth spending the $11 and change to see in the theatres?
