The story follows a young lawyer, Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), who is ordered to travel to a remote village and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As he works alone in the client’s isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover tragic secrets, his unease growing when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed only in black. Receiving only silence from the locals, Kipps is forced to uncover the true identity of the Woman in Black on his own, leading to a desperate race against time when he discovers her true intent.

I saw the Woman in Black at the cinema and loved it and then bough the bluray disc as soon as it came out. I was confused by the bluray version as some scenes seemed to be missing or shortened. I then found that cuts had been made to make sure it could pass as a 12A! Those cuts actually lost some of the scariness for me and I actually felt I'd been cheated when buying it. Why dumb it down and dilute the whole point of the film? Surely they could have had both versions to choose? I believe the US version is in its entirety but is it possible to buy the US version to play in UK bluray players?
