The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death: Film Review – A dull attempt at a scary story

The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death: Film Review – A dull attempt at a scary story

By Aubrey D'Souza2 January, 2015 3 min read

Horror films are always interesting. They might not always be great or frightening, but the stories that are told give you an insight into the creator’s mind. The problem with horror films, I feel, is that if they are good then they are genuinely scary, but if they are just mediocre, the effect is lost. The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death is one such film. It fails to scare, frighten or even shock. The predictability of the story transforms the film from frightening to “meh”.

Before arguments start flying in about how The Woman in Black 2 is terrifying, remember this is a sequel of sorts. There are very few scary stories that can have sequels. This isn’t one of them. Director Tom Harper attempts to scare the pants off people with this film. The movie is set in World War II England. London is being bombed and the people have to seek refuge in shelters or outside the city. This leads Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox), a school teacher, to head with her Headmistress Jean Hogg (Helen McCrory) and her students to a house in the country. Little do they know about the horror that awaits them. Soon, they have to face the woman in black. Now it truly turns into a story of survival against unspeakable horrors. Will they make it?


 

 
A horror film is truly scary when your own imagination fills in the gaps. The dark parts of your brain come to life and the terror that you kept bottled up inside comes to the surface. The best horror films use this and you are left shaking in a puddle of your tears and shrieks. In The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death though, there is no such thing. It doesn’t make you gasp or shudder or flinch or even stare into the corner. The story is predictable and quite safe. The true aspects of horror have been ignored, and what you get is a whole lot of slightly creepy music with sudden cut-shots. The character of Eve isn’t developed well, which is why you cannot feel for her. There isn’t a feeling of something in the dark sitting behind you, breathing gently and whispering into your ear. All in all, it is a not-so-scary scary movie. At the end, the movie just ends in a damp squib. Sure, if you are easily shocked, you might get a jump or two. But it isn’t enough. You will not feel compelled to sit in your room with all the lights on. The film is as tepid as day-old tea, to be precise. The soundtrack doesn’t even add to the horror.
 
Why should you watch the film?
The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death is one of those films that you can watch and then brag about later. There isn’t much thinking to do. As a one-time watch, this film is perfect. Watch this film over the weekend and you can add another film to your horror movie list.
