Dated: “THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2”News Samuel Zimmerman
Newly acquired for U.S. release by Relativity, Hammer’s sequel to the 2012 haunter hit will release this winter.
Relativity will release THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2 (aka ANGEL OF DEATH) on January 30, 2015, a date not far from the original’s February 3rd opening. Also a period-set film, THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2 is a WWII-era story in which Eel Marsh House is used rural shelter from London bombings by a schoolteacher and her class:
As bombs rain down on London during the Blitz of World War II, a group of school children are evacuated with Eve, their young and beautiful schoolteacher, to the safety of the English countryside. Taken to an old and empty estate, cut-off by a causeway from the mainland, they are left at Eel Marsh House.
One by one the children begin acting strangely and Eve, with the help of local military commander Harry, discovers that the group has awoken a dark force even more terrifying and evil than the city’s air raids. Eve must now confront her own demons to save the children and escape the wrath of The Woman in Black.
