Creepy and eerie sequel in which a gloomy ghost seeks revenge against children
17 September 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

While the first installment dealt with a young solicitor- Daniel Radcliffe- travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals . Here happens 40 years after the first haunting at Eel Marsh House, as a group of children under the care of two women (a rigid and strict Helen McGlory, as well as a warm and loving Phoebe Fox) are evacuated from WWII London . They arrive in the haunted house, awakening the house's darkest inhabitant at the isolated manor and soon learn a dark secret , as they find that Eel Marsh House is haunted by the vengeful ghost , referred to here as an angel of death. As they become the next target for the ghost of Jennette Humfrye, otherwise known woman dressed in black. With the help of a fellow soldier (Jeremy Irvine) , two women and some unfortunate children must fend off the damned spirit who takes the scared kiddies .She never forgives. She never forgets. She never left.

The pace is slow but I never found it dull, the plot is similar to first outing , as new visitors escaping from war-torn London discover that the house is haunted by the revengeful ghost of a woman dressed in black whose son was drowned in a bog and whenever she appears, a child from the group dies. As the scary story narrates the legends of the manor and reveals more untold secrets and another chapter of evil tricks & truths of the menacing Jeanette. Cast is acceptable such as : Phoebe Fox plays a young girl with a dark past that haunts her , as she learns that the woman lost her son drowned in the marsh and she seeks revenge, taking the children . Helen McGlory plays a stiff-upper-lip caretaker with disagreeable manners . And Jeremy Irvine as a handsome pilot to help investigate what is happening. In addition , Adrian Rawlins, who plays Dr. Rhodes, played Arthur Kidd , the main character, in the TV movie version of Woman in black (1989). The location used for the fictional story leading to Eel Marsh Island is Osea Island's tidal causeway situated at the estuary of Blackwater River in Essex, England, United Kingdom. Due to tidal conditions, the cast and crew were restricted to only 4 hours of working time per day at that location.

It contains a frightening and suspenseful musical score by Marco Beltrani , a good composer expert on terror films . Evocative but dark cinemtography by George Steele . The motion picture was professionally directed by Tom Harper who was Bafta nominated , but being clearly inferior to first outing . He is a fine writer/producer and filmmaker . Tom is a craftsman who began his career making short films. He wrote and directed his break out short film, Cubs, in 2006 about urban fox hunting. He then moved on to direct a range of film and television work which includes The Scouting Book for Boys (2009), Misfits (2010), This Is England '86 (2011), Peaky Blinders (2013), The Borrowers , The Woman in Black: Angel of Death (2015) and the BBC TV mini-series War & Peace (2016), and The Misfits , among others

Other movies about this story are the followings : The film The Woman in Black (2012) by James Watkins with Daniel Radcliffe , Ciarán Hinds , Shaun Dooley and the British television film Woman in black (1989) by Herbert Wise with Adrian Rawlins, Bernard Hepton , Sam Toovey , David Daker , Pauline are separate adaptations of the novel 'The Woman in Black' by Susan Hill.A third film, which would be set in 1983 (the year the original story was published), was planned
