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.
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.
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.

Not as gripping as the original -- but it works for what it is.
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.

The sequel is about as far from the original source as you can get while still using the title, The Woman in Black. It is just as far away from being interesting.
January 4, 2015
A respectably effective, decorously English addition to the current ghost story wave - Frightfully Insidious, as it were.
January 2, 2015
Director Tom Harper makes inventive use of the settings.

It may not be very clever, and the plot may be full of holes, but this sequel's clammy atmosphere is so unnerving that it manages to keep us squirming in our seats.
January 1, 2015
We return to Eel Marsh House, that spooky, bog-bedeviled pile haunted by the woman who clearly does not think orange is the new black, and holds a bit of a grudge against children as a species.
January 1, 2015
Flawed but genuinely creepy ghost story The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death is disappointing, but only because it comes close to greatness.
January 1, 2015
The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death is an improvement on its predecessor. That said, the new installment is, at best, a serviceable creep show, one with far more chills than thrills.
January 1, 2015
Director Tom Harper reins back on the Gothic overkill of the original, keeping the jump shocks to a minumum so when they come - you feel them.
January 1, 2015
Harper's well-appointed sequel has strong performances even if the Woman becomes a supporting character in her own tale.
December 29, 2014
A much bolder, braver horror sequel than most.
December 28, 2014
It's missing a stand-out shock but it's well-paced, stylish and, at times, deeply unsettling.
December 26, 2014
The denouement is unexpected and satisfying, while the peril provided by the Second World War backdrop cleverly matches the supernatural suspense.
December 25, 2014
A commercially driven sequel, sure - but still effective.
