Have your say

THIS spooky sequel to The Woman in Black is terrifyingly creepy.

Angel of Death is set 40 years in the future of 2012’s predecessor starring Daniel Radcliffe.

At the height of the Second World War Blitz, children are being evacuated from London to the safety of the countryside.

Young schoolteacher Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox) and headmistress Jean Hogg (Helen McCrory) take a group of children to the dilapidated Eel Marsh House, where their presence awakens the evil spirit.

The dreaded Woman in Black forms an attachment with one young boy, Edward (Oaklee Pendergast) and seems to know a lot about Eve’s secret past.

Along with handsome pilot Harry (Jeremy Irvine), she fights to protect the children from the ghost.

The flick is full of those moments that make you jump out of your seat.

But the worst thing about it is that as the music changes and the atmosphere becomes more and more tense, you brace yourself, confident that you’re not going to get a fright, which really only makes it worse.

It’s a great continuation of the story and a fantastic film choice for fans of spooky horror stories.
