Genuinely Spooky
6 January 2015 | by mr-abartonSee all my reviews

It's 1941 and London is in the grip of the blitz. Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox) and Jean Hogg (Helen McCrory) are taking a group of Children to Eel Marsh house. On arrival, they are greeted at the Station by Dr Rhodes (Adrian Rawlins). After voicing there concerns over the house's suitability, Rawlings finally convinces them that there's no alternative.

That night, Eve's sleep is disturbed by a vivid nightmare about being forced to give up her child years earlier. She also hears the sound of a rocking chair coming from the basement and goes to investigate. There on the wall is a message thats clearly disapproving of her giving up her child. Then Eve momentarily sees a woman in the shadows....a woman dressed in black. Jean thinks it's nonsense and accuses Eve of frightening the children and tells her to keep her ghost stories to her self. However, Eve does find someone who believes her, in the shape of Harry Burnstow (Jeremy Irvine) the air force officer that she met on the train. One of the children Edward (Oaklee Pendergast), hasn't spoke a word since the death of his parents in a bombing raid. However, it becomes apparent that Edward is being contacted, but by who and why isn't clear.

The Woman in Black: Angel of Death is a dark, atmospheric movie, that keeps faith with a lot of the qualities made famous during Hammer Films hay day. The music and sound effects make the hair on the the back of your hands stand on end. Oaklee Pendergast, is my stand out performance and reminded me, in some aspects, of the young Damian Thorn in The Omen. The movie is genuinely spooky, with a few genuine shocks. So if you don't like your movies with a good sprinkling of jolts......give this one a wide birth.
