The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death [2015] ★½


The first one (released in 2012) was a solid haunted house movie and a perfect vehicle for its leading man, Daniel Radcliffe. The plot wasn’t all that original, but the movie itself was atmospheric and the scares were pretty effective. The new one, this time around set during WWII, bored the shit out of me. Unlike part one, this installment only delivers surface-level jolts through cheesy jump scares (prolonged silence followed by sudden violence/noise that mean absolutely nothing), and after a while (10 minutes to be more specific), I felt I’d had my fill for a while. I think it’s safe to say that “The Woman in Black 2” simply has no reason to exist. I say skip it.
