Daniel Radcliffe talks The Woman in Black

Exclusive: "It's about loss, family and fear"

Daniel Radcliffe has spoken exclusively to Total Film about ghostly Victorian chiller The Woman in Black.

As the last installment in the Harry Potter franchise approaches fast, Radcliffe told us about his next move: "It's one of the great challenges, to get people to buy me as something else."

Radcliffe's character, Arthur Kipps, is "a father and a widower- two things I don't have direct experiece of."

The Woman in Black is directed by Eden Lake's James Watkins, with a screenplay by Jane Goldman.

"I would call it a character-driven horror film, along the line of The Orphanage or The Others" said Radcliffe. "It's slow-burning and it's very, very scary."

When we asked the 21-year-old actor just how adult this movie would be, he told us: "It's about loss, family and fear... The overriding sense of death pervades the entire film."

The Woman in Black is set to be released on 28 October 2011.
