    Just wondering if anyone has seen the Woman in Black DVD... I've never seen the movie but I've heard it is REALLY scary, I'm wondering how the DVD's quality is.
    Thanks!

    Back from the dead...
    I found this in conducting a search before posting the very same query.
    In other words, UP!

    The DVD is full frame and typical of older BBC productions, that is, soft with muddy colors. That said, I found it to be an extremely effective ghost story that's scary in ways most films of this type aren't. And there is one moment that scared me more than any film in recent memory.

    Can you tell I liked it, even though the DVD's quality is marginal?

    The Woman In Black is quite big in the UK. It's from a stage play which is still running in London and is also on tour around the UK as well. Matter of fact, I'm going to see it in july in Cardiff. I highly reccomend this disc, I have it on order from the US and can't wait for it to arrive! It is scary... BUY IT NOW!

    Very effective ghost story. Reminded me of the Haunting (1963) and the Changeling. The DVD is ok, it looks rather muddy as someone mentioned and has a forced trailer for Sharpe's Rifles. However, the quality and scariness of the film makes up for the technical inconsistencies IMHO. Cheers.

    PS..It's $16.77 shipped at Deepdiscountdvd.com.

    Thanks for the opinions and tips, fellows.

    Sounds good, but it's a shame that the transfer seems to be somewhat lacking...

    It is odd that this is out in the US but not in the UK, but then that's not the first time such a thing has happened. All those Hammer titles on Anchor Bay spring to mind.
