The Awakening

When the film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, a trailer surfaced to help build some buzz for the gothic horror The Awakening starring Rebecca Hall, but now the film has an official release date later in the summer, and a new trailer has arrived. The story follows an author and professional hoax exposer (Hall) 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. The film has all the cliche elements of supernatural horror like this, but I've heard the film is much more subtle and haunting. Watch!

Here's the trailer for Nick Murphy's horror thriller The Awakening originally in HD from Apple:

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 lurking the halls. Everything she knew in unravels as the 'missing' begin to show themselves. Imelda Staunton and Joseph Mawle are also involved. Nick Murphy (of TV's "Occupation) makes his feature directing debut with this horror film, and he also wrote the script with Stephen Volk. The film hits theaters on August 17th.

    " Others " shock me , really impress me , for long time didn't get out of my head , " Sixth Sense " was extraordinary either, I love GhostStories , kinda freak me out , there is many untold story still . Fortunately I see this welcome horror picture. I define it with this words : spooky , atmospheric , artful , visionary , splendid , well-done , fantastic , thrilling , high tension , brilliant Horror Flick but not in size of those two movie that I mention. A little cliche but totally pleasant and satisfying. That doesnt work just with boo moments but have enough heart and mind that make it more watchable, I love it Rebeca Hall is most desirable woman for me, she play with simplicity and act solid , comfortable and plausible. Horror in her eyes and her body waveing. There is Exellent Performance of her. Really interest in her next projects.

    This has already been and gone in theaters in the UK and been released on Blu-Ray. How come this article says released 17th August. Good film though and well worth seeing.

      Because, that's when it's gonna be released to US theaters. Sometimes the release dates between US and Europe vary wildly, especially when it's more of an indie production and not some big, shiny, star studded Hollywood blockbuster movie.

    Ooh, I like it. Looks like something I will watch from around the edges of my pillow. Oh, and was that the crippled prince from Game of Thrones who made that "Shhh" gesture?
