Review: The Woman in Black 2 – Angel of Death

The Womanthe-woman-in-black-angel-of-death_Fotor_Collage in Black 2 – Angel of Death is the sequel to the 2012 film The Woman in Black which starred Daniel Radcliffe as Arthur Kipps a young lawyer who travels to a remote village where he discovers a vengeful ghost of a scorned woman who is terrorizing the locals.

Directed by Tom Harper and written by Jon Croker and Susan Hill this film takes place 40 years after the events of the previous film.

The film which is set during WWII sees a group of evacuees being taken out of London by their school teacher Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox) and Headmistress Jean Hogg (Helen McCrory) sent to the remote Eel Marsh House.

This is when the dark spirit (Leanne Best) from the past awaken bringing a spine chilling fate to the inhabitants.

The-Woman-in-Black-2_2015-9_Fotor_CollageEve finds herself fighting a battle to protect her pupils from the Woman in Black; especially the recently orphaned Edward (Oaklee Pendergast) – whilst battling her own personal demons. She is helped by pilot Harry Burnstow (Jeremy Irvine).

 

 

 

 

The film which is produced by Hammer Film Productions (better known as ‘Hammer Horror’) provides the classic jump scares associated with this company as well as providing a strong story arc and well developed characters.

Overall we found this film a worthwhile sequel to the previous film. Although the over use of ‘fake’ scares seemed distracting at times and became repetitive; taking away from the gripping storyline.

The Woman in Black 2 – Angel of Death has just been released in UK Cinemas
