Synopsis


The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death
Hammer Films goes in for a second round of fright with this follow-up to The Woman in Black from a story idea by original author Susan Hill. Tom Harper directs. This entry opens in 1941 London, where the citizens live in fear of aerial bombings by the Germans. Schoolteacher Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox) and headmistress Jean Hogg (Helen McCrory) are tasked with evacuating a small group of children to the countryside where they'll be safe, although probably not since their destination is the haunted mansion from the original (was there really nowhere else in Britain that could have housed two adult women and a half-dozen small kids?). Things start out gloomy and just proceed to spiral downwards, from disturbing dreams to waking hallucinations to actual death. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

    Could have been better

    The first film is a masterpiece of horror! I love the book, the 1989 movie and stage play! As an extension of the Woman in Black universe, this is a fine entry! Great? No. Entertaining? Most definitely! Far better than many horror sequels and carries much of the same unsettling atmosphere of the first! While the first had scares a plenty, the sequel is quietly reserved and seems more interested in tension rather than scaring you although the final act will definitely give you a run for your money! Definitely recommend.

    Pretty good

    This movie is actually stronger than the second. There is a lot more plot, and as another poster discussed, it is rated PG-13, but is still very suspenseful. If you have some teenagers who might want something scary, it is a pretty good movie. The short-story Woman in Black is quite divine, so I was really let down with Woman in Black #1. However, there are a number of things that are pretty good in this sequel and there isn't the same expectation of it matching a written piece.

    Woman In Black 2 Angel of Death was just not that good. There was a lot of hipe amongst horror fans when this came out but, the hipe was over when the storyline sort of changed along with it's cheesy graphics. The movie takes Place during WWII in England. The story kind of stays true to the first Woman In Black (which is an excellent movie!). If one wants to see the next chapter in the Woman In Black series it might be worth renting before buying.

    Old School Style Delivers

    While not as strong as the first film, nevertheless this one stands on it's own. Doesn't really rely on the first film, but it doesn't hurt if you've seen it. Creepy lighting and cinematography, this has a classic old school feel to it - which is not a bad thing, especially if you're jaded with the "modern" gory, tacky jump scare filled fare that's out there. Good old fashioned ghost story.

    I was a fan of the first Woman in Black movie. However, since this movie takes place around 30 years after the first with a whole new cast I was a bit worried. Nevertheless, after viewing part 2, I can say that I enjoyed the new setting of WWII Europe and the scares were about on par with the original. Worth a watch for horror film fans and not too scary for the younger crowd!

    Solid old fashioned ghost story

    A decent old fashioned ghost story that relies more on character and atmosphere than jump scares. If you are a fan of found footage nonsense horror films than this is not for you. If you are looking for a solid, well crafted atmospheric ghost story you could do a lot worse.

    Adequately creepy with some genuine scares.

    The original movie didn't really need this sequel. That being said, the plot is original and there are good attempts of making this movie stand alone by itself. However, beware the true scare is that there are hints of there being a third movie to follow.

    Not really worth the cost.

    I wasn't sure if I wanted to get this movie, or not. I really enjoy suspenseful and scary movies, and was extremely unhappy with this selection. The first one was much better, if anyone would ask me, I would have to say just wait, and rent it.
