Hogwarts and horror fans rejoice. Today brings the US premiere of the first post-Potter Daniel Radcliffe film project, director James Watkins’ The Woman in Black, which is the latest slice of brooding Gothic terror from the recently reincarnated legendary British horror factory Hammer Films. Early reviews appear promising, and while we’re all curious to see whether or not Radcliffe can deliver on his promise to show audiences a more mature side in his first adult feature, at Overlook we’re even more excited to see how Susan Hill’s classic story will be translated to the big screen. If this TV spot is to be trusted, we’re in store for the “scariest film of the year.”
Last week we were thrilled to announce the acquisition of A Question of Identity, the seventh book in the Chief Inspector Serrailler series, with books eight through ten to follow. A Question of Identity is scheduled for release in fall 2012, which should give first time readers ample time to catch up on books one through six: The Various Haunts of Men, The Pure in Heart, The Risk of Darkness, The Vows of Silence, The Shadows in the Street, and The Betrayal of Trust.
