Watch: Rebecca Hall in New Trailer for Gothic Horror '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.
