WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
During the Second World War, a group of schoolchildren are evacuated to the countryside with their young schoolteacher Eve (Fox). They soon end up at Eel Marsh House, where 40 years prior it had been known to have been haunted by a mysterious figure. One by one, the children begin acting strange and it is down to Eve and local military commander Harry (Irvine) to face their demons and confront the terrifying Woman in Black…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
The first instalment, which saw Daniel Radcliffe face the ghostly demon originally from Susan Hill’s chilling novel, proved to be a huge hit with audiences so there is every hope that its sequel can raise the terror to an even higher level.
