The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death Reviews
September 25, 2019
The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death is a profoundly frightening, relentlessly spooky film that wears how old-fashioned and traditional it is as a badge of honour.

You might be startled once or twice while watching Angel of Death, but the thrills are cheap tricks.

Though well acted and shot, and set in an interesting period, the story itself seems slight and predictable - or even unbelievable.
April 4, 2019
The lazy, ineptness of the screenplay doesn't help matters, and writer Jon Croker seems keener on ticking every box in a notional 'How To Make A Horror Film' manual than creating enduring characters or a truly riveting storyline.

There is nothing daringly compelling or overtly curious about the titular character nor the Eel Marsh House that the Women In Black roams around in with so-called ghastly intimidation.
October 31, 2018
Overall we found this film a worthwhile sequel to the previous film. Although the over use of 'fake' scares seemed distracting at times and became repetitive; taking away from the gripping storyline.

Still retains the original's reliance on jump scares but is a much more involving story that at least manages to keep you activated throughout its run time.

Unfortunately, The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death has nothing in common with its predecessor as far as quality goes
November 28, 2017
Filmed in virtually non-stop darkness, this sequel lacks any tension-producing shivers or fright.
November 11, 2017
Overall, the movie doesn't rewrite the book of shock (despite the jump scares), but what you get is a fast-paced scare flick with an ending that could have been creepier.
September 20, 2016
Angel of Death took that solid foundation and wasted it with unoriginal, lazy storytelling and a drab visual sensibility.
March 28, 2016
Not as gripping as the original -- but it works for what it is.
February 22, 2016
Offering nothing new in the way of shocks and suspense and relying on tired horror tropes, this is a tiresome slog rather than a chilling sequel. A disappointing follow-up to the far superior original.

Tom Harper does a truly admirable job of using atmosphere and the movie's creepy setting to give audiences a sense of unease, but moves away from the deadly force we were introduced to in 2012, which feels like a bit of a step backwards.
December 18, 2015
Much of the horror boils down to heavily underscored jump scares that are neither particularly frightening nor, like the movie as a whole, memorable.
August 23, 2015
Not as strong as the first outing, but it still works as a classy and refined example of how to revisit the "vintage" horror vibe.
August 2, 2015
When things go bump, director Tom Harper duly makes us jump on cue, but the patchy script ensures the scares don't have quite the same impact as before.

Mostly jolt-horror. Racks up scores of scare-miles by simply skimming here and there, rather than really rattling skeletons in history's closet or plunging head-first into chilly psychological depths.
