    I gave it a 6. It was a bit better average, but for the life of me I can't see what is supposed to be so scary about it.

    Never seen but heard people raving about this one. Might have to track down the DVD one of these days.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I'll see this one some day, though I'm not in a big hurry.

    8. Recently rented this from the video store and enjoyed the hell out of it. Great foreboding atmosphere and a gut punch of an ending. Wish I'd known about it before the DVD went out of print, it's selling for a couple hundred on Amazon and I don't even see any listings on ebay.

    9.5 for me. As close to a perfect supernatural themed film as one can get, just below The Haunting (1963) for me.
    I actually thought the remake was ok, though nothing special. Its sequel was sleep induing though.

    Network are releasing it on Blu-ray in the UK on May 25th, 2020: https://thewomaninblack.networkonair.com/womaninblack

    [​IMG]

    When a friendless old widow dies in the seaside town of Crythin, a young solicitor is sent in to settle her estate. Following cryptic warnings from the locals regarding the terrifying history of the old woman's house, he very soon begins to see visions of a menacing woman in black...

    Atmospherically directed by BAFTA-nominated Herbert Wise and starring Adrian Rawlins as the unfortunate young solicitor and Pauline Moran as the terrifying revenant, this unsettling drama remains a high watermark for ghost story adaptations on British television and still retains its significant potential to shock.

    Unseen for decades, Nigel Kneale's chilling adaptation of Susan Hill's best-selling novel has been painstakingly restored in High Definition by Network's award-winning in-house Restoration Team from original film elements for this long-awaited release.

    SPECIAL FEATURES
    • Feature version in full widescreen
    • Audio commentary with Mark Gatiss and Kim Newman
    • Image gallery
    • Booklet by Andrew Pixley

    A new version of Dawn is great, but this is the Blu-ray news of the week for me. Already pre-ordered.

    Figures that not long after I finally caved in and bought a boot leg, an official release would hit.

    Now tempted to watch the scramble of people trying to unload their DVD for whatever cash they can get.

    As for the film...good, better than the remake, but doesn't measure up to the hype and its a stretch to call it a classic. Still worth owning, and I'll snag the upgrade.

    Luckily, I sold my original DVD years ago and got something like $100+ for it. I kept a DVD-R copy of the disc all this time, but pre-ordered the Blu-ray already.

    The original DVD has been bootlegged on ebay for ages though... so I doubt even the original DVD will sell for all that much anymore.
