So this is a remake of the 1980's BBC film which was a adaption of Jane Goldmans book 'Woman in Black' Skeptic Solictor goes to stay in a Haunted House in the middle of the lake after unmarried female owner dies.. Local curse that all the kids used to die in town and that locked Childrens room opened at night and the Lady in black would come for him?
Yep, definitely based on that. Never seen the BBC adaption or read the book myself though.
I did like the setting for the film - it reminded me of a place I used to go to called Shell Island when I was a cadet. You'd have to wait until the tide was out before you could get there.
