This sequel to the Daniel Radcliffe vehicle from a few years back follows a group of characters back to the same Victorian ghost house. Set during the London blitz, our main character is the most inquisitive nurse in the world. Any minor noise prompts her to wander off, calling ‘Hello?’ tremulously. Naturally she’s sent off to a rotting, derelict mansion with a group of kids who are being relocated to the country.
Avoiding Luftwaffe raids would be bad enough but, with mechanical predictability, an evil Victorian ghost story begins to unfold. Everything happens pretty well as one would expect it to. Creepy kids see things in the night, fog creeps in over the locations and supporting characters refuse to listen to our heroine.
This is not a particularly scary film. Hammer films rarely were though. The fact that this isn’t very frightening does make it passable light entertainment.
