If it's half as good as the '89 version it'll be a cracker, I still get chills thinking about "that" scene.  :-\

Not familiar with the original. Looks intriguing.

The "original" has always been the stage play:

I meant the original film (or rather, TV adaptation). I know about the play but I've never seen it.

Just come back from the cinema,and for a 12a this is a scary little film.It starts off as more as a mood piece and builds plenty of tension before it really comes into its own.I was not familiar with the play or the story beforehand so that probably helped.anybody else seen it yet?

My eldest daughter went to see it yesterday and said it was really scary, she was only telling me earlier in the week how nothing scares her...

I'm going to give it a watch tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing it.

Took the mother-in-law to see this this afternoon - my first trip to the cinema in almost a year!

I really liked the film. It's very atmospheric, brilliantly edited and beautifully shot. Acting is very good (particularly Radcliffe) too. Not the instant classic I was hoping but certainly the best of the new Hammer films and a good, solid 8/10.

It's a creepy film too - there are some great jolts and a menacing undercurrent throughout most of the film. There were a couple of young girls sat a few seats away from me who thought it was a lot more frightening than I did though - when, at about half way through, one decided to go to the toilet, the other pleaded to allow her to come to because she didn't want to be left in her seat alone! When the film was over they were stood outside the cinema smoking and were well past their mid-20s! Hilarious.

News regarding the US DVD and Blu-ray releases is now on the blog:

Those (silly people) who boycotted the UK theatrical release of James Watkins’s atmospheric chiller THE WOMAN IN BLACK rejoice, the uncut version of the film is due for release on DVD and Blu-ray from Sony Pictures in the US this coming may.

The film was subject to 6 seconds of cuts in order to secure a family-friendly 12A rating in the UK and it looks like Momentum is issuing the same cut print for release on its home video platforms when it bows in June. Details of the cuts (courtesy of the BBFC website) are as follows:

This work was cut. The cut(s) were made at the request of the distributor to achieve a particular category. To obtain this category cuts of 0m 6s were required. Details of cuts below may contain spoilers of plot details.

Distributor chose to reduce moments of strong violence / horror in order to achieve a ’12A’ classification. Cuts made in line with BBFC Guidelines and policy. A ’15′ classification without cuts was available.

You'd think they'd do one of them releases with a cut DVD at 12 and uncut Blu Ray at 15 wouldn't you.

It has yet to be confirmed but the ads I've seen for the UK release have 12 certs on the cover. It could be that the Blu-ray may still get an uncut 15. I hope so, I'd prefer a UK release to be honest.

I've been waiting for this so I hope I don't have to import. Missed it at the cinema but the Mrs saw it with a friend and loved it.

I don't get it personally when it comes to home video. Do many 12 year-olds and under buy DVD's? Do that many parents honestly regulate what their kids watch to the degree of 15 or 12? By around 12 I was pretty much allowed to watch whatever I wanted. Nudity wasn't even that big of an issue either with all the 70's Hammers. It wasn't exactly uncommon to see some T & A on The Sweeney or something else back then after all.

The best thing for Momentum to do would be to issue the cut version on DVD as a 12 and then have an uncut Blu-ray. Lionsgate did this for The Expendables.
