The Women in Black is a gostely tale of revenge from beyond the grave. A grieving lawyer believes a curse has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of The Women In Black. In an attemped to exorcise the spirits he engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his story. His plan begins innococently enough but as the borders between reality and fantasy blur the horror starts and the flesh begins to creep.
