30 years after the first film takes place, comes this one where Eve (Fox) and Jean (McCrory) come with the school children to Eel Marsh House.  They don’t want to be there but unfortunately it’s their only alternative.  And since The Woman in Black is still haunting the place, it’s definitely going to suck for them.  Especially after one of the children turns up dead.

I thought I’d really like this movie.  I mean, it’s basically a period piece with jump scares and I love both those things.  But this movie didn’t get me like the first one did.  It didn’t touch me.  And the ending was bad.  Also, it was quite boring.  I was falling asleep watching it.  There was good direction and atmosphere, but it just wasn’t enough.

Our score: 32.
