Daniel Radcliffe searches a mysterious run-down mansion in a new television spot for the horror mystery movie “The Woman in Black.” It frames the central premise: What did they see?
Radcliffe plays a London lawyer Arthur Kipps, who travels to the small, isolated village of Crythin Gifford to close out a dead client’s affairs.
The client, Alice Drablow, was an elderly and reclusive widow who lived alone in the desolate and secluded mansion, known as Eel Marsh House.
But is the woman really dead? She seems to materialize in an upstairs window of the grisly mansion at the most inopportune times.
The new trailer sheds more light on the cast of characters in the movie, which includes Ciarán Hinds, Janet McTeer, Sophie Stuckey and Liz White.
Arthur stays in the house and hears the screams of a drowning child and sees decaying children listlessly wandering the marshes.
The visions tie into a series of inexplicable deaths of children in the village, and eventually his own child is threatened.
The thriller is based on a novel by Susan Hill adapted by Jane Goldman. James Watkins directs.
It’s slated to open Feb. 3, 2012. Check out the new spot below:
