  • [New – 2/26/15] | José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Evidente secuela de una película notable, como manda el género. Un auténtico tostón, que juega sus bazas a una ambientación tenebrosa que no compensa el sopor generalizado de un guion sin originalidad ninguna y un trabajo de dirección atascado y sosísimo. Mal.
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: There’s building tension, and then there’s cheaply toying with us. This movie is a prime example of the latter.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Feeble fright flick, punctuated by a creepy, predictable sound track.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Thinks it’s hitting notes of subconscious dread, but it’s just swinging a sledgehammer of tropes and hoping one of them sticks. (Spoiler: None do.)
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death is yet another example that not all successful horror movies have what it takes to become successful horror franchises.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: If the woman in black wants to continue haunting “ye who enters,” she better come with more rules and better scares. Move along; you’ve been goosed before and better.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Back in black…
  • Frank Ochieng @ SF Crowsnest
    • Excerpt: Admittedly, ‘The Woman In Black’ was not what one would call a gory groundbreaking showcase in its designated genre but it did register as a literate and edge-of-your-seat spooky spectacle that held its own in slow burning thrills, It is too bad that one cannot make the same claim for director Tom Harper’s sluggish, by-the-dots ghoulish follow-up ‘The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death’.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
  • David Upton @ So So Gay
    • Excerpt: Angel of Death doesn’t just repeat the first film’s scares; it relies on them. Shots of the decrepit Victorian toys punctuate scenes, supposedly terrifying in and of themselves because of how the first film cleverly used them to accentuate the escalating claustrophobia and terror.
