40 years after the events of the first film, bombs drop down on London during the Blitz of World War II, Eve Parkins joins her schoolchildren and the school’s headmistress, Jean Hogg, to evacuate them to the countryside town of Crythin Gifford. On the journey there, Eve meets dashing pilot, Harry Burnstow, who is stationed at an airfield near Crythin Gifford.
Upon arrival, they are collected by air raid warden Dr. Rhodes, who takes them to Eel Marsh House. Their bus suffers a puncture while travelling through the deserted village, where Eve is confronted by a raving madman, Jacob, who repeats the phrases “Died on Sunday, seen on Monday,” “Who will be next? It must be you,” and “Don’t look! You mustn’t look.” She runs away from him and reboards the bus after he shatters the window through which he had been speaking.
Though Eve and Jean do not approve of the place in terms of its suitability of a boarding school, there is no other alternative. That night, Eve has a nightmare of how she was forced to give up her baby when she was younger; when she awakens, she hears the noise of a rocking chair coming from the house cellar. There, she finds a message, scolding her for letting her child go, and sees a woman dressed in black, who vanishes.
The next morning, one of the children, Edward, who has been mute since the death of his parents in a bombing, is bullied by two other children and locked in the nursery, where he sees the Woman in Black. Eve frees him but can feel that something is wrong, particularly when Edward constantly carries around a rotten doll. That night, one of the boys that was bullying him is drawn out of the house following the Woman in Black; Eve finds his body on the beach, covered in barbed wire.
