Eel Marsh House is a place of darkness and horror. It terrorized Daniel Radcliffe in the 2012 film “The Woman in Black,” and now the titular specter is at it again in the sequel film “The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death.”
She targets young children, convincing them to commit suicide and join her on the other side. Radcliffe battled to save his son in the original. This time the danger is even greater, as schoolteacher Eve (Phoebe Fox) finds herself hiding out with her students in Eel Marsh House during World War II’s London blitz.
The presence of the children awakens the “Woman in Black” and as is the case with many horror sequels, it looks like this one is putting even more emphasis on eliciting jumps and scares out of its audience.
The sequel film was written by Jon Croker and directed by Tom Harper. Tobin Armbrust, Ben Holden, Richard Jackson and Simon Oakes produced “The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death.” Relativity Media will release it to theaters on Friday, Jan. 2.
