Tell Daniel Radcliffe Your Scary Story
Daniel Radcliffe will star in his first leading role since the ‘Harry Potter’ series ended with this winter’s ‘The Woman In Black’ To celebrate the film’s January 12th release in the UK, the actor and “The Woman In Black” YouTube Channel have announced a spooky story contest.

Beginning this Halloween (October 31st- just in case you weren’t sure), aspiring writers will have the opportunity to film themselves telling their best original scary story to upload to “The Woman In Black” YouTube Channel. The winner’s entry will be re-read by Radcliffe himself and included on the film’s DVD special features. Additionally, the winner gets to fly to London to attend the gala premiere.

Radcliffe, who plays lawyer Arthur Kipps in the upcoming feature, announced the competition on YouTube with a reading from one of the spookier scenes from Susan Hill’s original novella in which “The Woman In Black” is based upon.
In the video, Radcliffe gives a little tidbit of advice to potential entrants.

“For all you budding writers out there, remember that it’s 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, so good luck and I can’t wait to see what spooky stories you guys come up with in the coming months,” Radcliffe explains.

If you’re interested in joining the contest, please visit www.youtube.com/thewomaninblackmovie. The competition ends on December 20th. On this date, ten finalists will be chosen, and then voted upon by the public. The final winner will be announced on January 6th, 2012.

“The Woman In Black” follows Arthur Kipps as he travels to a remote village to close off the estate of the recently deceased owner of Eel Marsh House. During his lonely stay in the mansion, Kipps discovers that local children have been mysteriously disappearing for quite some time, and begins to delve deeper into the town’s secrets.
