ADVERT BREAK: Daniel Radcliffe’s “The Woman in Black” Ghost Story Competition

The Woman in Black is based on the world famous ghost story by Susan Hill.  The film follows the fate of Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe), a lawyer who is forced to leave his young son and travel to a remote village to attend to the affairs of the recently deceased owner of Eel Marsh House.

Working alone in the old mansion, Kipps begins to uncover the town’s tragic and tortured secrets and his fears escalate when he discovers that local children have been disappearing under mysterious circumstances.  When those closest to him are threatened, Kipps must find a way to break the cycle of terror. The film is scheduled to be released in the UK and Ireland on February 10th, 2012.
