Family Movie Review: The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death

TheWomanInBlack2 ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): whole-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: PG-13        Length: 98 minutes

Age Appropriate For: 13+. The film is a ghost story that continues the narrative of its predecessor, in which a vengeful ghost whose son died curses other children into committing suicide; in this film, a child drowns and dies and two others attempt to kill themselves, and there is a general sense of tension and fear because of World War II. Also lots of jump scares involving loud noises and shadowy, ghostly figures that lurk in corners, crawl out of ceilings, and appear out of nowhere, with decomposed and ghoulish faces. Overall, though, not gory or grotesque; it’s all somewhat run of the mill for this genre. Also, some kissing.

As a sequel to the surprising 2012 hit, ‘The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death’ doesn’t live up to its predecessor. The story is slapped together, the characters aren’t memorable, and the deeply emotional vibe of the first film is never recreated in a way that matters.

By Roxana Hadadi

An effective horror film with a PG-13 rating is a rare thing, but 2012’s “The Woman in Black” was it. With a strong central performance from Daniel Radcliffe, a well-structured story, and an unbelievably creepy vibe, the film succeeded without any excess gore or grotesquerie. Lightning doesn’t really strike twice, though, and the film’s sequel—”The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death”—falls short in practically every way.
