Preview: The Women in Black
My hair stands on end as bells chime in a bleak English moor as each doll twitches erratically and with truncated chimes. Daniel Radcliffe’s new film shows his character investigating an abandoned house in a small village. As any thriller trailer it cuts between scary eerie scenes as small girls recite a foreboding rhyme about “the house in the marsh.” As the final moments of the trailer come to an end, a familiar horror scene takes place. Radcliffe is looking out the window and something appears over his shoulder, yet instead of repeating the cliche and screaming the apparition hovers for a few moments and then the screen goes black. I’m not a huge fan of scary movies, but it will be interesting to see how this one plays out and see Radcliffe out of his Hogwarts robes.
