Exceptional horror movie! - The Woman In Black (2012)

Another one of my favourite modern horror films! The Woman In Black is an absolutely exceptional piece of work directed by James Watkins, which contains very spooky, eerie moments, and events which create suspense.
Lawyer Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) is still grieving about his wife's death four years ago after delivering their young baby Joseph. Later, his employer assigns him to travel to a village named Cryphin Glifford to study some documentation that used to belong to the deceased Mrs. Drablow. After making friends with Sam Daily (Ciaran Hinds) on the train to his destination, he travels to the Glifford Arms inn. However, he is turned down by the owner who claims he did not receive the reservation request and there are no rooms available. After being advised to return to London, Arthur goes to an abandoned house to discover it is haunted by a spooky woman in black who merely seeks vengeance on the children of the locals due to the passing of her own son.

I would highly recommend this film to all of you guys who love the traditional 'haunted house' films, as this, in my opinion, tops all of them.
It is a very dramatic film, and is similar to Bram Stoker's Dracula in many elements, except the vampire is replaced by this evil ghost of the woman in black who snatches the lives of the local children.
There are many frightening moments within the 95 minutes that is lasts for, and I'm telling you, it might be rated a 12A, but it is intensely scary! 8.5/10.
