Review: The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death (2015)
What happens when there is very little “Woman in Black” in The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death movie? According to Thomas and The Black Saint, “Ample time to take a nap.” For many of the grue-crew, the Hammer sequel proves to be a snooze-fest; while for a few on the show and for Mrs. Dreher (co-host Dave’s better half), the film offers some entertaining Gothic horror romance. Listen and decide for yourself…does the first horror film of 2015 have anything to offer?

Based on a recommendation of HNR listener and fan, Donnie H., Doc reviews the independent horror feature from North Carolina film maker Joe Stauffer.

The Black Saint backs Doc up with news that the film won multiple awards at the New York City Horror Film Festival in 2013 including Best Director and Best Screenplay.
