The new trailer for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death is TERRIFYING
Share This Article:
Winter and Christmas are the perfect time for ghost stories, and this year audiences are set to experience the big screen follow-up to one of the scariest of them all: The Woman in Black. The 2012 adaptation of Susan Hill’s original novel was a big box office success, and starred Daniel Radcliffe as a young man working for a firm of lawyers. Sent to Eel Marsh House, he discovered terrifying goings on linked to the figure of a woman, dressed in black, who would appear accompanied by the sound of screams. Now, a sequel has been penned by Jon Croker (a novelised version of his screenplay by crime author Martyn Waites was released a year ago by Random House) and moves the story on through time, to 1941. With London in the midst of the blitz, two teachers have evacuated a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. Seeking safety from the devastating attacks being wrought upon London, the group instead find themselves facing a darker, more supernatural evil when their presence awakens the Woman in Black. The film has been directed by Tom Harper, who made the films The Scouting Book for Boys and upcoming acclaimed chamber-piece War Book, which premiered at the London Film Festival earlier this autumn. It has been a co-production between Entertainment One and Hammer Films, the historic horror film company, now owned by Exclusive Media, and stars Phoebe Fox, Jeremy Irvine and Helen McCrory. By spooky coincidence, the movie also features an appearance of Adrian Rawlins, who was the lead actor in the 1989 adaptation of the book, shown on ITV and (it gets creepier) played James Potter in the Harry Potter films, alongside Daniel Radcliffe, star of the 2012 adaptation of The Woman in Black. There are certainly strange forces at work here. The Woman in Black: Angel of Death (2015) will be released in UK cinemas January 1st 2015. Watch the trailer below:
