The movie stars: Helen McCrory, Jeremy Irvine and Phoebe Fox. We’ve provided blurbs from a few of the critics, below.

Ben Kenigsberg from The New York Times, gave it a 50 score, stating: “The director, Tom Harper, seems less interested in allegory than in monotonous, conventional goosing, the kind that involves flickering lights and a creaky rocking chair.”

Justin Lowe at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 50 grade, saying: “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.”

Sara Stewart at the New York Post, gave it a 50 grade, stating: ” Director Tom Harper (“War Book”) defaults too often to gotcha scares, which is disappointing.”

Gary Golstein over at the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 50 score, saying: “The new installment is, at best, a serviceable creep show, one with far more chills than thrills.”

Alonso Durable from TheWrap, gave it a 42 grade, saying: “Every good idea this sequel has to offer winds up taking a backseat to the most obvious cat-in-the-closet “BOO!” moments imaginable.”

Lastly, Scott Foundas from Variety, gave it a 40 score, stating: ” A handsomely made but dramatically inert and not very scary sequel.” Stay tuned. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Google Plus by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
