Just off of the Toronto International Film Festival, The Awakening is a gothic horror story set in post WWI England. Atmospheric English countryside? Check. Haunted orphanage? Check. Spirited protagonist that doesn’t believe in ghosts….yet? Check. Ghostly happenings during a shower scene? Check and check.
Not sure when The Awakening will make its widespread US release, but it could be a decent choice for Halloween horror if it hits the theaters this fall.
thanks for the movie review. always looking for good horror. now if there are any original zombie films at the film fest i’ll be even more excited:)
I hope so – it’s been a horror drought this year. Hopefully we’ll get some good indie flicks from the festival circuit – otherwise, I think we’re stuck with Paranormal Activity 3…
Feel free to check out my movie page for more horror trailers!
