Woman in Black sequel plot revealed
Woman in Black was surprisingly successful, although to be honest I don't think it should have surprised us all after all it was adapted from the excellent old school horror novel from Susan Hill that was adapted for the 1989 television film by Jane Goldman and direct by James Watkins. It had all the ingredients including a strong cast.
Since it's been successful the sequel was agreed and now the plot has been revealed, and it sounds like more of the same but with different characters.
The sequel has the poorly imagined title of The Woman in Black: Angels of Death, something I really hope is just a working title or something someone made up to associate with the story, unfortunately it's the former.
The plot has now been released and I'm not entirely sure how to take it. We already know that the script was written by Jon Croker, the man who was story editor on The Woman in Black, so there's history and connection there. I guess the missing piece is the director.
Here's the plot outline that ShockTillYouDrop carries:
Seized by the government and converted into a military mental hospital during World War II, the sudden arrival of disturbed soldiers to Eel Marsh Harsh has awoken its darkest inhabitant. Eve, a beautiful young nurse, is sent to the house to care for the patients but soon realizes she must save them from more than their own demons. Despite Eve's efforts to stop her, one by one they fall victim to the Woman in Black.
So what do you think? How does it sound? Is the Woman in Black sequel going to live up to the original or does it sound like it's going to cover the same ground but with a group of men instead of just the one?
