40 years after Arthur Kipps' experience at Eel Marsh house, a group of children under the care of two women, escaping from war-torn London, arrive to the house and become the next target for the ghost of Jennette Humfrye, otherwise known as The Woman in Black. With the help of a fellow soldier, the women and children must fend off the spirit of Jennette Humfrye, and end her presence once and for all. Written by
Slightly predictable ending and predicable plot features yet gripping storyline and some good jumps. The storyline itself isn't scary, but the occasional jumps and screams are what provide the horror effect. Not an overall "scary" movie but good enough. The cinema had a scary atmosphere but the first 15-20 minutes of the film are really dark and hard to see, it might have just been our cinema but I had to squint and really strain my eyes to see what was going on. This improved during brighter scenes but the issue later returned during basement scenes. I think having the "angel of death" concept emphasised more by killing off more characters would have been effective. I also think that there is not enough links to the first film. Good film in all, and unlike other sequels, this is actual better than the first, but you know whats coming in some scenes.
