Harry Potter Shows His Dark Side

Arts & Entertainment

by Tony Billman – film major at SPC Seminole

Pure suspense, something that has not been seen in a long time in film. Suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat.  A Town in terror, death, powerful secrets, The Woman in Black delivers suspense that keeps people wanting more.

A grieving lawyer, Arthur Kipps, travels from London to a small town to finalize closing on a deceased client’s estate.  Upon arrival he is met with one of the richest people of the town with a warm welcome while the rest of the town is scared of his arrival. As he dwells deeper into the estate, he learns of the client’s secret affecting the town and its children and looks for an answer to bring everything to peace.

This film was a milestone mainly because it set a tone for actor Daniel Radcliffe as his post-Harry Potter film giving audiences a chance to see him in a new light. The acting in the film helps build suspense with a magnificent delivery.  Daniel Radcliffe brings a superb performance as he tries to understand the backstory of his client and the town’s past to unravel the mystery behind the woman in black and bring everything to peace. This film represents an excellent way to kick off the New Year for going to the movies, and gives audiences something to look forward for the rest of the year when the blockbusters come out in the summer or in the fall/winter.  Rating: A
