    Wall Street Journal John Anderson

    The landscape is dire, the architecture is haunted, children disappear by the dozens and antique toys inexplicably spark to life. That Mr. Radcliffe doesn't is part of the problem.

It scary at some point, but it's not like that scary that will make you want to turn on the lights when you sleep. The Woman in Black is an old school freak out.
