'Harry Potter' star moves into the realm of horror
The trailer for Daniel Radcliffe‘s first film since completing the Harry Potter has been released. You can view it below.
The clip for ‘The Woman In Black’ presents the film as an unnerving almost psychological horror, rather than an out-and-out scarer. Although as Radcliffe told MTV News:
It’s going to be terrifying, and at the test screening they had, apparently people were leaping out of their seats terrified, so I think it’s just going to be a really, really good movie.
The actor has also described it as a slow-burner, character driven piece, “along the lines of The Orphanage and The Others“.
The Woman In Black was written in 1983 by Susan Hill before being turned into a monumentally successful play. Since its first performance in 1989, it has become the second longest running play in the West End.
The book, which tells the story of a grieving husband who moves to a mysterious town, has been previously adapted into a TV film in 1989.
The latest version is directed by Eden Lake helmer James Watkins, while the script comes from Jane Goldman, the co-screenwriter of Kick Ass and X-Men: First Class.
The Woman In Black is due for release in the UK on February 10, 2012.
