If there was ever a horror movie creature that deserves to have its ass kicked, the ghost broad from Eel Marsh House would be in the top five. With a January release date just around the corner, the first official poster for The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death has dropped, and it’s pure freaking nightmare fuel. As if the trailer wasn’t bad enough!
In the poster, that evil wraith shadows some little innocent kid as he cowers from her horrible presence. And I just want to kick her:
Here’s the brand new trailer I was telling you about. It’s so scary, it’s good:
During the London bombings of World War II, school teachers Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox) and Jean Hogg (Helen McCrory) lead a group of children in evacuation to Crythin Gifford, a remote village outside of the city. When the group takes up residence at the Eel Marsh House, 40 years after Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) investigated the first haunting, Eve soon realizes they are not alone. The longer they stay in the house, the more the awful past of the residence unravels itself and the evil spirit that lurks around them threatens the well-being of the children. With the help of a pilot (Jeremy Irvine), Eve does all that she can to protect the children and discover the truth behind the Woman in Black.
So at what point exactly does on see the house and say, “Fuck this! We’re turning this joint around. I’d rather deal with the Germans.” Because, one look, and I’d have begged and pleaded to be taken back to a London bomb shelter.
