What are critics saying?


TheWrap by Alonso Duralde

Every good idea this sequel has to offer winds up taking a backseat to the most obvious cat-in-the-closet “BOO!” moments imaginable.


Slant Magazine by Ed Gonzalez

The film ends up cheapening its sense of empathy in its final mad rush to subject audiences to every incarnation of the jump scare imaginable.


The Hollywood Reporter by Justin Lowe

Reliant on suspense rather than gore, this is functional middle-brow psychological horror and screenwriter Joe Croker finds plenty of tired haunted house tropes he’s happy to recycle in adapting material from Susan Hill’s original novel.


Total Film by Matt Glasby

Harper’s well-appointed sequel has strong performances even if the Woman becomes a supporting character in her own tale.


Empire by Olly Richards

A much bolder, braver horror sequel than most. Except for a wispy ending, it’s a match for the first.


The Guardian by Peter Bradshaw

This inevitably doesn’t have the charge of the first story, but it is still interestingly weird and dreamlike, and quite disturbing. A commercially driven sequel, sure – but still effective.


Time Out London by Tom Huddleston

It quickly devolves into predictable shock tactics, drippy wartime romance and scenes in which the characters leaf tremulously through Victorian photo albums and spout exposition.
