Critic Reviews

  • Bruce Diones, New Yorker
    The moody, beautifully composed production raises it above the norm.
  • Rex Reed, New York Observer
    It takes quite a time before the pieces of a poisonous puzzle appear, and when they do, they don't always fall into place with clarity.
  • Tom Huddleston, Time Out
    'The Woman in Black' is old-fashioned, ornate, imposing, occasionally creaky - and possessed of more than a few enjoyably nasty surprises.
  • James Berardinelli, ReelViews
    The star's job description is that he be able to react convincingly to a variety of supernatural events and to endure being covered in mud. He has difficulty with neither.
  • Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
    Haunted house movies basically live and die by their atmospherics and by the consequences to those poor mortals who come too close to the premises, and The Woman in Black delivers on both counts.
  • Adam Graham, Detroit News
    The Woman in Black is your standard-issue ghost story, gussied up in period garb to make it look like a prestige picture.
  • Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    None of it's new, but it's fun particularly because - like those Hammer films of yore - it peoples its great sets with solid actors.
  • Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
    A hoot of an old-fashioned British horror film in which being under 10 years old is not a good thing.
  • Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
    There's little that's new, revealing or stylish about this basic-black horror story, but if you've got a Goth sensibility, it might suit you.
  • Rafer Guzman, Newsday
    A disappointing post-Potter debut from Radcliffe, barely breathing in this musty, creaky chiller.
