(This review may contain spoilers).
I was quite glad to see that this film was rated a fifteen, given the subject matter, in comparison to the first film. It was interesting to see another group of people have to deal with the vengeful ghost and I liked Eve’s budding relationship with Harry.
There wasn’t much mystery in this film surrounding the woman in black, but it was interesting to learn more about Eve’s past during the course of the film. It was disappointing that the voice actress for the first film, who read Jennet’s letter, didn’t seem to be the same one for this film.
I would have liked some reference to the events of the first film, since it’s unlikely the deaths of so many children wouldn’t have been reported, or known about. I only recognised one of the actors in the film and that was the one playing the boy Tom. Although I thought they did well in the roles, only a couple of other children apart from Edward had developed characters. The others just seemed to be there for the sake of it.
The film did do a good job of showing the atmosphere of the time the film was set in. There were some really creepy moments, but I saw most of those coming. I did like the ending, but I could have done without the obligatory scare setting it up for a potential sequel.
