The Woman in Black
Scary movies aren’t always enjoyable because suspense and horror aren’t the same thing. The Woman in Black engagingly cultivates both, though the plot is predictable. It combines the looming Victorian-haunted-house atmosphere of Edgar Allen Poe’s “Fall of the House of Usher” with did-you-see-that-in-the-mirror tension and satisfying resolve from Daniel Radcliffe’s lead role. For best results, serve in the dark with a bag of popcorn and a midnight thunderstorm.
