Synopsis: 40 years after Arthur Kipps' experience at Eel Marsh house, a group of children under the care of two women, escaping from war-torn London, arrive to the house and become the next target for the ghost of Jennette Humfrye, otherwise known as The Woman in Black. With the help of a fellow soldier, the women and children must fend off the spirit of Jennette Humfrye, and end her presence once and for all.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

This film took place during World War II so we wanted to craft a sound reminiscent of the time. We incorporated percussive sounding instruments made out of artillery shells, which made a more interesting composition. Musically, we built upon the score for The Woman in Black. I had the opportunity to collaborate with Brandon Roberts and Marcus Trumpp, who added a fresh take to the creative process. It’s very similar to the first one. In fact, I tried to integrate the two movies. I had the exact same ensemble, the same musicians come in to play, and set them up in exactly the same spots as the first film. Half of the score is from the original and half is new to keep in the spirit of what was done before.
