Trailer: You Will Be Now (Extremely) Excited for ‘The Woman in Black’

Over the past six months we’ve shared with you some atmospheric stills and a UK teaser for CBS Films’ The Woman in Black, which comes from Eden Lake director James Watkins and stars Harry Potter‘s Daniel Radcliffe. None of them could have prepared you for this.

This morning Yahoo! premiered the official teaser for the latest Hammer production that has the best use of sound since the trailer for The Strangers back in 2008. But it’s not just the sound that impresses, the teaser itself is absolutely frightening, with the final shot leaving your skin crawling with goosebumps. I went from scoffing to celebrating. February 3, 2012 can’t get here soon enough…

The story follows a young lawyer, Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), who is ordered to travel to a remote village and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As he works alone in the client’s isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover tragic secrets, his unease growing when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed only in black. Receiving only silence from the locals, Kipps is forced to uncover the true identity of the Woman in Black on his own, leading to a desperate race against time when he discovers her true intent.
