I know this has been out for awhile, but I just saw it last weekend. I decided to go because my friend, April, gave it a thumbs up on facebook, and I think she makes her judgements on the right criteria; plus, my friend, Kathy, saw it on stage in London a few years ago and told me it was an unexpected great show. I filed that away in my mind as something I might want to see. Finally, I checked some reviews before I went and read this on Rotten Tomatoes: Traditional to a fault, The Woman in Black foregoes gore for chills -- although it may not provide enough of them for viewers attuned to more modern, high-stakes horror. It foregoes the gore, hmmmm, and it may not be what the Saw 17 crowd expects?! It sounds like my kind of horror film. I wasn't disappointed. It was Edgar Allen Poe rather than Freddy Krueger. It was slow and haunting, but because I really did not know what would happen next, I was in a constant state of chills, goosebumps and hair on end--but I could keep my eyes open. Well done.
I've started three paintings this week. Each are in a state of not done, but it has been fun to work on them all at once.
