    Arthur Kipps, a young solicitor is summoned to small market town Crythin Gifford to attend the funeral of the reclusive widow and sole resident of Eel Marsh House, Mrs Alice Drablow. At the funeral he spots a pale young woman dressed all in black and a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, one that is only deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk about The Woman in Black - and her terrible purpose. While sorting through Mrs Drablow's papers in the house, Arthur is haunted by a series of unexplained noises and chilling events. Susan Hill's terrifying ghost story has been adapted into a successful West End play, and a major film starring Daniel Radcliffe will be hitting the big screen in 2012.
