Relativity Media has begun ramping up the eerie marketing campaign for Tom Harper’s upcoming horror sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death. And today, Shock Till You Drop have published a collection of brand new screens for the film that showcase some of the leading, human stars.
Taking place a full forty years after the events of the Daniel Radcliffe-led original, Angel of Death will see Eel Marsh House transformed into a temporary bomb shelter for those fleeing the cities amidst the chaos of World War II. Starring War Horse‘s Jeremy Irvine, Phoebe Fox and Leanne Best as the titular supernatural entity, Harper’s sequel will chart Fox and Irvine’s attempts to protect the children at the old residence from a vengeful spirit.
Expect thrills and chills aplenty when Angel of Death makes its bow, but one question that fans — and perhaps studio execs — will be asking themselves is can it emulate the success of its predecessor? Time will tell.
The Woman in Black: Angel of Death will raise its ghostly head when it looms into theaters on January 2, 2015. In the meantime, you can peak from behind your sofa at the newly released screenshots in the gallery below.
During the London bombings of World War II, school teachers Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox) and Jean Hogg (Helen McCrory) lead a group of children in evacuation to Crythin Gifford, a remote village outside of the city. When the group takes up residence at the Eel Marsh House, 40 years after Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) investigated the first haunting, Eve soon realizes they are not alone. The longer they stay in the house, the more the awful past of the residence unravels itself and the evil spirit that lurks around them threatens the well-being of the children. With the help of a pilot (Jeremy Irvine), Eve does all that she can to protect the children and discover the truth behind the Woman in Black.
