Could ‘The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death,’ a sequel to 2012’s surprise horror hit, be just as frightening as the first movie? We certainly hope so. See what the critics had to say!

It’s been three years since the first Woman In Black was released, and we’re just starting to calm down from all the scares. That movie was super creepy, so we had high hopes for the sequel, Angel Of Death. Unfortunately, a number of reviews suggest that it’s not worth seeing! Find out why.

‘The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death’ Movie Reviews — Scarier Than The First Film?

See what the critics said:

Variety: “A talkier, more drawn-out affair than its spare, elegant predecessor, and minus Daniel Radcliffe’s impressive lead performance, this second helping of imperiled-child ooga-booga from the revivified Hammer horror factory will be hard pressed to scare off the competition from several robust holiday holdovers (The Hobbit, Into the Woods, Unbroken) when it materializes in theaters this weekend.”

Daily News: “The horror sequel lacks Daniel Radcliffe and an original plot, but ‘40s setting and gorgeous setting scares up some enjoyment.”

Screen Rant: “The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death is yet another example that not all successful horror movies have what it takes to become successful horror franchises.”

The Wall Street Journal:The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death has two strikes against it right out of the gate: it’s a sequel, and it’s being released during the first weekend of the new year, which is traditionally a dumping ground for middling movies. Critics say this one is better than most, but although the film is atmospheric and visually sharp, it’s never particularly scary.”

That’s a shame. We were really hoping this sequel would be just as scary as the first film, if not more. We’ll still go see it, though, and see how we feel.
