Description

Written by Stephen Malatratt

Based on the novel by Susan Hill

Directed by Angie Higgins

Arthur Kipps is compelled to finally tell the tale that has long troubled him concerning events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse. Townspeople warned him not to go near the woman’s dreary home, and no one would explain or even acknowledge the menacing woman in black he kept seeing. But he ignored the townspeople’s cryptic warnings, and went to the house where he discovered its horrible history and became ensnared in its even more horrible legacy.
