‘The Woman In Black 2’ looked fantastic, every detail of the locations, costumes and sets were incredible, as was the acting. Unfortunately I can’t say the same thing a about the rest of the movie.  There were only a few scary moments and the movie was so predictable. From the very beginning anyone who’s seen a couple of horror movies could correctly guess what would happen next. To make things worse, they left the movie wide open for another sequel. If someone is new to horror, they might really like ‘The Woman in Black 2’, but I wouldn’t recommend it for horror veterans.
