The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death

Just to make sure, this is a horror movie, right? It doesn’t strike me as one. It’s honestly more of a period piece with ghosts, than it is a horror movie set in the 1940’s. Take one look at George Steel’s cinematographer and tell me with a straight face that it doesn’t remind you of Downton Abbey. That’s not what we usually expect of a modern-day horror movie, but don’t worry, our expectations are met too, because nobody here can act. In fact, they can’t even talk at a normal volume it seems. Everyone here’s practically whispering throughout the whole damn movie. Call that spooky, but after about five minutes, it’s not spooky, it’s boring. I found the first “Woman in Black” to be the same way, but if it makes any difference, “Angel of Death” only uses that film’s title as part of its own so it can rake in some money at the box office.
