    There's not a lot that's new about the terrors he faces - the director uses time-honored techniques to keep you on edge, every one of which graced Hammer films of yore. But happily for the picture, there's a reason they're time-honored. And keep you on edge, they definitely do. show more

    "No Country for Young Kids" would be just as suitable a title for The Woman in Black, a hoot of an old-fashioned British horror film. show more
