The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Woman In Black (2012)


Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Ciaran Hinds
Director: James Watkins


Premise:
A lawyer is sent to a remote village to settle the estate of recently deceased recluse. Once there is finds out a spirit haunting the village and killing off the children

My Take:
A great cast performs well in this movie which is never short on atmosphere and scenery. It requires the viewer to pay attention with your eyes and ears.The villagers do a great job at making the lead character feel isolated and not wanted and keeping a shroud of mystery around their children's death. 
My big issue is too many jump scare attempts. The movie would have been far more effective if the makers held off on a few. Still, it's better than most mass marketed horror flicks.

Rating: So Good
