Nifty Vintage Hammer Horror-Esque Poster for 'The Woman in Black'
We're into that time of year when a bunch of potentially-good, but also potentially-bad films are hitting. One coming up is The Woman in Black, the Hammer Horror adaptation starring Daniel Radcliffe. We've seen plenty of trailers and posters before, but this one is a throwback to true Hammer Horror, mimicking the poster style of those films. Den of Geek (via STYD) debuted the poster, which basically features a softly painted Radcliffe. I tossed in another Hammer poster below just to compare. There's also a nifty book out packed with all these posters called The Art of Hammer, which you can pick up now. See the poster below!
Here's the poster for The Woman in Black, which isn't nearly as impressive as the real Hammer posters.
Here's an original Hammer Horror poster for The Vengeance Of She from 1968, just for quick reference.
A young lawyer (Daniel Radcliffe) travels to a remote village to organize a recently deceased client's papers, where he uncovers tragic secrets and encounters the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance. If you haven't seen them yet, watch the full official trailer or second, shorter trailer for The Woman in Black.
The Woman In Black is directed by British filmmaker James Watkins, of the horror Eden Lake previously. The screenplay was written by Jane Goldman, of Stardust, Kick-Ass, The Debt, X-Men: First Class, adapted from Susan Hill's classic novel, published in 1983. CBS Films will be distributing The Woman In Black in the US, and has the film set for a February 3rd release coming up in a few weeks. Visit the official website.
