The newly revitalized Hammer Films have had some big successes (“Let Me In,” “The Woman In Black“), less well received productions (“The Resident,” “The Quiet Ones“) and for their next trick, the studio is hoping a sequel can put another movie into the win column. The Daniel Radcliffe-starring “The Woman In Black” was a surprise critical and audience hit when it was released a couple of years ago, and while Radcliffe hasn’t returned for the followup, “The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death” is aiming to carry on the spooky flame.
Jeremy Irvine and Phoebe Fox take the lead roles this time around, with Tom Harper (“The Scouting Book For Boys“) behind the camera. And the story kicks off forty years after the events of the first “The Woman In Black” with WWII looming, and the spirit of Eel Marsh House looming once again. The setting offers some interesting ideas, we dig the leads and the director, so here’s hoping this lives up to its potential.
“The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death” opens in the U.K. on February 13th. Watch below.
