'The Woman In Black' teaser trailer: Daniel Radcliffe and his extra-long sideburns star in 'the most chilling ghost story of our time'

Well, he’s certainly not Mr. Potter any more.

Daniel Radcliffe very well might carry his younger fan base with him through much of his career, but in this case, I can safetly say The Woman In Black doesn’t look like one for the kiddies.

Per the plot for the movie, which is slated for release later this year, Radcliffe plays a young lawyer who finds himself in a remote village (where everything truly horrifying takes place) on business, but soon finds himself at odds with the ghost of a scorned woman (the worst kind). 

I can’t remember the last time a movie without “Blair Witch” in the title had me this goosebumpy from seeing relatively nothing. I’m sure this will be better than that, though. In fact, I’m sort of excited. The long sideburns are most promising of all — they remind me a little bit of Tim Riggins. Mmm…Tim Riggins.

    I saw this play more than 16 years ago in London, and it scared the socks off of me!! I couldn’t look at the playbill for the duration of the trip, it frightened me so much! Cannot wait for this movie!

    • Christine

      I saw it in London last year and spent the entire second act with my head buried in my jacket. So scary!

      • True Chizz, this news is Jank!!!!!

        this trailer does look spooky, but I take issue with the article suggesting he looks like Tim Riggins, lets not go nuts. But good for Dan, I respect the fact that he continues to stretch and not remain Potter, heck if I were him with all those millions, I would have gladly coasted

        The staging was amazing. Without the aid of crazy theater effects, they were able to terrify the entire audience.

      I never expected a stage show to make me scream like a little girl…and “The Woman in Black” did just that. Can’t wait to see it on film.

  • Nikki

    That looks creepy.

  • katie

    Ditto on the goosebumps.

    Also, I appreciate the Tim Riggins reference in this totally unrelated article. Mmmm indeed.

  • greg

    My girlfriend and I both loved the play as well. Looking forward to this.

  • SH

    Actually they are moving release to 2012. But HeY! EW! what can you do to make sure this gets a wide release in the U.S.?

  • Peter Vee

    Wait, Hammer Films is still in operation? That’s awesome.

    • Liz Lemon

      I think it just started back up. The Woman in Black was one of their new projects.

      • meliot

        They just did “Let The Right One In.”

      • Liz Lemon

        Yeah I know and also “The Resident” and “Wake Wood.”

  • deedeedragons

    Just recently saw Hammer’s “The Resident” starring Hilary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Lee Pace & Christopher Lee, it was pretty standard but this looks much better.

  • alex

    This is based on a book.. a reallllyyy scary book. Worth reading!!

    • Morgan

      YES! Love the book! It’s so creepy in an old fashioned way, but sooooo atmospheric and eerie. Really looking forward to the movie.

  • michelleee

    saw the play in London in november–it was terrifying!

  • Liz Lemon

    I can’t wait to see the movie. It sucks that it doesn’t come out until February 2012. But Dan looks hot in this movie.

  • bruno

    that was lame.

  • Jeannette

    I loved the movie from 1989, so this might be something I’d go see.

    • Morgan

      The 1989 movie significantly changes the book’s ending; I liked that version of the movie–up until the end. I hope this newer version sticks to the book (which I think is more scary than the 1989 version).

  • Flip

    The book is really good–I read it after it was announced DR was making a movie of it.

  • Michelle

    I saw this play in London and had to sleep with the lights on for two nights. And I don’t talk or think about the play after dark. So after watching the teaser I am worried about sleeping again. It looks so amazing!

  • Jean

    Saw the play a few years back in London and I’m still trying to understand what was so terrifying about it. Hopefully the movie is more up to par.
