Hammer Release Official Synopsis for ‘The Woman in Black: Angels of Death’

Written by on June 12, 2012 

It was hardly surprising when Hammer decided to sequel-ize The Woman in Black, nor should one have been shocked by the slightly familiar — and, thus, wholly safe — plot description. Two months after the financially-motivated announcement of The Woman in Black: Angels of Death, the British horror institute have released a synopsis that all but confirms a set-up which takes more than a few cues from the Daniel Radcliffe-starrer.

The original novel’s author, Susan Hill, has been working on the film with Woman‘s story editor, Jon Croker. This is what they’ve come up with:

“Seized by the government and converted into a military mental hospital during World War II, the sudden arrival of disturbed soldiers to Eel Marsh [House] 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.”

A bit disappointing to see that they, against all odds, didn’t go with something a bit different; regardless, some of the original creative team getting directly involved has me, if not expecting, at least hoping they can expand upon that basic template and make something not entirely echoing the first film. Seeing as that got a pretty respectable critical reception in its own right, though, I’d think this could pan out better than your typical horror follow-up — and, hopefully, be made without losing a good scare.

Does this new plot outline make The Woman in Black: Angels of Death sound any more appealing?
