Nigel Kneale’s spine-tingling adaptation of Susan Hill’s gothic novel The Woman in Black creeps onto Blu-ray for the first time ever in this restored special edition, with an audio commentary from horror experts Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, The League of Gentlemen), Kim Newman (author, Anno Dracula) and star Andy Nyman (Ghost Stories).
Watch The Woman is Black Trailer:
When a friendless old widow dies in the seaside town of Crythin Gifford, a young solicitor is sent in to settle her estate. Following cryptic warnings from the locals regarding the terrifying history of the old woman’s house, he soon begins to see visions of a menacing woman in black…
Atmospherically directed by BAFTA-nominated Herbert Wise and starring Adrian Rawlins (Harry Potter franchise, Chernobyl) as the unfortunate young solicitor and Pauline Moran as the terrifying apparition, this unsettling drama remains a high watermark for ghost story adaptations on British television and still retains its significant potential to shock.
