Episode #011 of Flixwatcher podcast sees Felix Trench and Tom Crowley from Wooden Overcoats (the rival funeral director podcom) return, this time to discuss the 2012 Daniel Radcliffe film The Woman in Black.
Recommended to Felix by gothic horror fan and Wooden Coats creator David, Felix and Tom watched this together over croissants – what are your favourite Netflix watching foods?
The Woman in Black is a film, based a stage play (the second longest running after The Mousetrap trivia fans) that is based on a horror novella by Susan Hill. This film version is the second film adaption with this version written by Jane Goldman.
Naturally, for a film based on a book or a stage play, there is going to be similarities, the attention to detail in the sets was noted and admired (lovely woodwork) and relies on old-fashioned noises for scares and jumps. We discuss the evolution of Daniel Radcliffe post Harry Potter and enthusing about gothic horror films we really love (Crimson Peak, The Devils Backbone, The Haunting).
Overall it scored a low 2.4, while it’s not especially a bad film neither the hosts or the guests felt it compared with other modern horror films. While unlikely to scare, it succeeds in being a bit creepy. Watch it with a friend for that mini scream experience, maybe with some croissants.
