I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
The story-telling is good with flashbacks.The film is both funny and heartbreaking. You smile in a scene and get a soulcrushing revelation in the next.
All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
It is great to see Harry ... uhmmm ... Daniel has grown up and takes on more serious roles. This movie transports the feeling of the early 1900s very well and the creepy scenes are quite good. Daniel Radcliffe and Ciarán Hinds have an amazing chemistry while acting and also the old house looks impressive. On the negative we have, once again, annoyingly loud and often false jump scares, who ruin the experience a lot. Definetely worth a watch, allthough I am a little disappointed. After all, I expected a little more from director James Watkins, who also did the amazing Eden Lake movie back in 2008.
I still don't understand why this movie is labeled as a drama-fantasy movie when it is obviously a clean horror movie. I loved the film. Daniel is one hell of an actor and he showed it again here. The tension building and the atmosphere are over the top with the typical dark british weather. The only thing that I didn't like were some of the typical horror movie scenes, especially the scenes with the dog barking and the moving chair, but still, it is one of the better horror movies I've watched in recent time.

In the modern time i struggle to find a genuinely terrifying and enjoyable film. This film is brilliant at creating with intense build ups and bone chilling scenes. As it follows the novel by the author Susan Hill, it gives its own twists to allow its own originality.So do not decline watching this film because you think you know what happens. CGI is used in many cases however it is not over used yet can look slightly silly in same cases. The figure of the woman was well portrayed as unknown and the pale scarred face was particularly sinister especially when it adapted into the environment of multiple scenes. The Gothic, Victorian theme gave it a constant feel of uneasiness and the atmosphere uplifted a very miserable emotion by using foggy,rainy weather and other atmospheric details. Daniel Radcliffe playing as the main character Arthur Kipps was a well developed character and showed great faces of fear and other emotions to analyse to you watching how he is feeling and also adds towards the extreme intensity of the film. At some point i do feel as if the music was slightly over the top especially to uproar jump scares.To conclude this, i believe this to be a very thrilling and scary movie which is unique in many ways. I would definitely recommend this to a horror or Gothic enthusiast.
