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.

Story: During WW II, London's residents face the fury of Nazi air-raids. To keep a group of children safe, the authorities move them and two teachers to a safe house in the countryside. What no one knows is that this dilapidated house has a spectral inhabitant far more terrifying than the Luftwaffe's air raids.

Review: If there's one thing that Woman In Black 2 is heavy on, it is atmosphere. And that's apparent during the journey out of London when the students, chaperoned by Eve (Fox) and a brigadier's wife Jean (McCrory) head to Eel Marsh House. Located slightly off the mainland, the terrain is marshy and treacherous.

The 'safe house', itself is obscured by clouds and looks as if it could give the poor war-traumatized kids a fresh set of nightmares. One of these kids is the orphan Edward (Pendergast). He refuses to talk and communicates with the kindly Eve, with paper chits.

Strange things start to happen in the house at night after they all reluctantly settle in. Things go bump in the dark and faces peer out from secret passages and dank, dark corridors. Eve has nightmares about her aborted child as the spectre starts manifesting herself, sending across vicious vibes while trying to drive a wedge between Eve and Edward. Amidst this and a cantankerous Jean, Eve's only relief is a charming RAF pilot Harry (Irvine). Harry protects Eve and Eve protects Edward, who she loves like the child she never had.

The stylishness and eerie visual sophistication creates an often unsettling, almost surreal vibe that emphasizes how disconnected they all are from the rest of the world. And the very grin-and-bear-it style Brit stiff upper lip that they try to maintain (Eve and Jean even have time for a spot of tea in the kitchen as they try to figure out what's going on) adds to the sense of surrealism. 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.

nice movie

After the success of the first film a sequel was inevitable, unfortunately this isn't a patch on its predecessor. Set during WWII, Eel Farm house is now a home for refugees, but the woman in black of the title isn't happy and soon makes her prescence felt. Slow moving, and far too reliant on sound effects for its scares thesis a major disappointment
