For whatever reason, 2012's The Woman in Black didn't do anything for me. As a horror film, it was so intent on creating constant jump scares that it didn't seem to care spending any time building up real tension. And I can honestly only spend so much time watching Daniel Radcliffe wandering around looking like a confused guppy.
It did, however, make shedloads of money. So sequel.
Set in 1941, it sees a group of kids sent away from London to escape the Blitz. Only they end up at the most aggressively haunted house in Britain. Which seems a bit unfair.
Here's the trailer. It's quiet to best to turn up the sound for added atmosphere.
With a successful first outing you can pretty much bet this is a cash grab by Hammer Films - get in some cheapish actors and wheel out the same scares. Hopefully I'm entirely wrong and its actually an amazing addition to the horror genre which reinvents every tired cliche.
I'm not often wrong though.
The Woman in Black: Angel of Death is in cinemas in 2015.
