The Woman In Black Synopsis

Arthur Kipps is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow. It is not until he glimpses a wasted young woman, dressed all in black, at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, a feeling deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black - and her terrible purpose.
