In the final scenes miss Perkins is driving the Jeep under pouring rain, and is still raining hard when she runs trough the garden before the house -which is quite overgrown- yet her coat is perfectly dry once she steps inside the house. See more »

I enjoyed the previous film with Daniel Radcliff. I expected this to be, perhaps not as good, but hopefully entertaining. I was disappointed, it is just nonsense. Where to start:

There is no real plot, certainly nothing that ties the characters together in any believable way.

The film relies on the horror genre stereotypical making the audience 'jump' moment. Over and over again. It gets so over done it becomes tedious.

The actors do their best but the lack of any real plot and a poor script and so many illogical aspects make it hard work with so many absurdities e.g.

One man, a former pilot demoted for cowardice, is apparently in charge of an entire local dummy airfield. It has fake aeroplanes and he can electrically ignite fire bombs to simulate 'hits' and make the enemy think they have hit something. He has a motorbike and a jeep for transport. He manages this 'dummy' airfield entirely on his own. No guards, no maintenance people, nobody, just him.

A school class of evacuees and 2 teachers are 'evacuated' to the ghostly derelict house. More classes are arriving in a week. There is 'no where else'. It's absurd to believe they would put kids (even in time of war) in a derelict house with holes in the roof and great holes in the floors etc. But somebody has installed beds for a dormitory. Installed desks/tables for classrooms but they can't sweep up and clean out the other rooms ? Let alone do any basic repairs.

A doctor drives a bus for them but won't put on the headlights in the marshes because of the 'blackout'. However, He is quite happy to walk around with a very big torch shining and he is quite happy to stand at the house door open at night with the lights on.

There is some raving blind man wandering about for no apparent reason.

I felt sorry for the actors, they did a good job with so little to work with.
