The Woman In Black is a cinematic ghost train that plunges us into the eerie silence of a haunted house.

London solicitor Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) is haunted by the death of his wife Stella (Sophie Stuckey) during child birth, and he seeks refuge in his love for their three-year-old boy, Joseph (Misha Handley).

His work suffers as a consequence and Arthur’s boss Mr Bentley (Roger Allam) makes clear the precariousness of his situation.

To prove himself, Arthur is despatched to the remote village of Crythin Gifford where he must attend to the papers of Alice Drablow, the recently deceased owner of Eel Marsh House.

The locals including innkeeper Fisher (Shaun Dooley) and his wife (Mary Stockley), try to ward off Arthur.

However, Arthur persists with the help of local landowner Mr Daily (Ciaran Hinds) and glimpses a mysterious woman (Liz White) dressed all in black, who is blamed for the deaths of children in the village.

The Woman In Black is showing at the Odeon Kettering.
