For all the garbage from the horror franchise that gets thrown up on the big screen or straight-to-DVD, sometimes you have to be patient to find the really spooky thrillers. Now it looks like one may have found its way to the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival this week (stay tuned right here for coverage from the fest from our own Alex Billington), as Rebecca Hall (The Town) stars in The Awakening. The story follows an author and professional hoax exposer in London after WWI, who’s approached by a teacher (Dominic West) at a boy’s boarding school, who believes the students are being tormented by a ghost.
Here's the trailer for Nick Murphy's horror thriller The Awakening:
In The Awakening, 1921 England is overwhelmed by the loss and grief of World War I. Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart (Rebecca Hall) visits a boarding school to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she knew in unravels as the 'missing' begin to show themselves. Imelda Staunton and Joseph Mawle are also involved. Nick Murhpy (of TV's "Occupation) makes his feature directing debut with this horror film, and he also wrote the script with Stephen Volk. No release date is available yet, but stay tuned for information as it becomes available.
