It's Daniel Radcliffe vs. ghosts in creepy new Woman in Black trailer

The former boy wizard is out to stop some supernatural shenanigans once again—but this time, instead of a magic wand, he's got a stiff upper lip and some carefully cultivated facial hair.

The setup for The Woman in Black sounds, on the surface of it, a lot like Bram Stoker's Dracula: Radcliffe plays a lawyer who treks out into the middle of nowhere at the behest of a client who may or may not be dead. Hijinks ensue.

Can the young Mr. Radcliffe carry a spooky thriller all by himself, without an Expelliarmus spell or a Hermione in sight? We'll find out on Feb. 3, 2012.
