Creepy! — “The Woman in Black” with Daniel Radcliffe

I suspected there was some movie action by the occasional burst of clicks on my post about Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black. I just clicked on the trailer  for the film with Mr. Radcliffe (tentative February release) and was too rattled to watch even half of it. Hope that’s just tricky editing.

I spend most of my time writing and reading. Most recent publications: the reissue of "To Marry an English Lord,"one of the inspirations for "Downton Abbey," and the historical novel "Leaving Van Gogh." I am too cranky to belong to a book group but I love the book-blogging community.

    Fabulous! I just bought it today, and was instantly hooked!

    I’ve read the Serrailler crime novels, which I found pretty easily, but I haven’t gotten to her earlier books. I’ll have to look for this one.

    Lisa, this is a very different effort, but as expert as the Serrailler novels. And there’s one called “Howard’s End Is on the Landing” http://amzn.to/npDBS4 that’s very popular with book bloggers. Susan Hill is a woman of many parts, evidently.

      I thoroughly enjoyed Howards End is on the Landing, and I’ve also read The Small Hand, a ghost story that I think came out earlier this year.

    Eeeeeek!

      Guess you clicked the link to the trailer, Custos? Broken dolls… such a cliche and yet still so disturbing…

    Oh, wow, this looks good! I read the book last fall and had heard about the new film adaptation then. Thanks for reminding me of it – something to look forward to!

      It looks pretty good, but I may wait for reports from the field. The trailer may have been cut for maximum terror, but it was darn scary — not my first definition of pleasure!

  6. I’ve heard it’s extremely creepy! I plan to read the book in time for Halloween, which I’ve heard is frightful delight!🙂

    Yes, Natalie, that sounds like a great idea. Actually, it’s pretty short… maybe you should stage a read-aloud! Chills!
