The Woman in Black Trailer Startles Daniel Radcliffe

The Woman in Black is already creating quite a stir, since the release of it's creepy and mysterious trailers. Particularly because this is the break away film for Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe. Since wrapping up the final film for the series, Radcliffe has been working hard to recreate his image from the famous, young wizard we have known him as.
Radcliffe portrays a young lawyer who voyages to an isolated English village in order to settle a recently deceased woman's estate. There, he encounters a vengeful and disdainful ghost who has been menacing the locals. From the looks of it, dealing with this haunting will not be an easy task.
Clips of dark, spooky hallways and an ill-lit mansion are fitting for an era horror flick, but will it set itself apart enough from previous adaptations? The Woman in Black is based off British novelist, Susan Hill's The Woman in Black; but has since been adapted for the stage and a made for TV movie. This was of course all released in the U.K., so the chances of most American audience members viewing any of the above are slim. That being noted, a story that has been adapted and re-created more than once usually has a promising story line.
The Woman in Black is set to hit American theaters in February 2012 and only then will we be able to decide if Radcliffe has broken away from his Harry Potter role, or if the frightening movie lives up to the hype.
