The Woman in Black 2 Movie Review

I ventured out on a cold, wet, rainy Friday night to see the new The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death film this just opened. This is a sequel to the 2012 film that starred Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe.

This sequel picks up 40 years later with two teachers, and group of orphans who travel by train to Eel Marsh House that is pegged to house the orphans. They arrive and the teachers are distraught with the condition of the house, which is painfully obvious how run down the place is.

The school teacher Eve tries to get the kids acclimated to their new environment. Eve starts sensing something of odd and wrong especially when one of the kids named Edward is locked in a room, and is found staring at a wall for seemingly no reason. Things are made worse  by the fact that Edward will not talk due to the loss of his parents in a house fire. "Shop 2CoolGhouls"

The movie plods along slowly, and Eve does discover the vengeful ghost that wants to take the lives of all the kids for the child she lost in life.  The ghost specifically seems to be targeting young Edward, and Eve manages to save his life in the end. Overall its a good atmospheric ghost story, and definitely better than the standard horror film, but sub par to the 2012 film.
