Home Video Viewing Alternatives

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to The Woman In Black.

Daniel Radcliffe faced a variety of ghosts in his title role as Harry Potter. A mechanical monkey music box is also a motif in The Phantom of the Opera. Creepy old houses are as common as horror movies, and play a pivotal part in films like Skelton Key and The Others, as well as in the more family-friendly choices The Haunted Mansion and The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.

My son watched this at aged 13 and was absolutely traumatized. I would recommend not letting children view this film.
