If you’ve never heard of creepypasta, it is basically scary stories people post online. Most of these stories are told in first person and are meant to be read as though they are true accounts. You’ve surely come into contact with some of the lowest forms of creepypasta in the form of comments on YouTube or similar sites which typically end with “Repost or she will appear by your bed at midnight to cut your eyes out too!” or something similar. There are some great stories out there in the creepypasta genre though, and you can find them on YouTube, just not generally in the comments section.
Welcome to another Trailer Tuesdays! Let’s look at The Woman in Black.
At first glance this trailer is really nothing special from any other horror movie. It’s got creepy dolls, creepy music, creepy rhyming, and my favorite, creepy children. But let’s be honest as to why all of us are filled with glee over a horror movie that seems relatively typical– Daniel Radcliffe.
I’m very excited to see Daniel Radcliffe in something that isn’t Harry Potter. He’s already made a name for himself in musical theatre and recently on SNL, but now we get to see him in another movie and that’s very exciting.
Daniel Radcliffe aside this particular horror does have some notable things going for it in the trailer. The trailer makes the movie seem like a slower more subtly scary movie, and not the more typical ones that are coming out now a days that either are filled with gore or filled with cheap scares that make you jump once and then you’re over it.
All in all the trailer isn’t amazing, but there is enough appeal to make me want to see this movie.
