Recently acquired for US release by Cohen Media Group is Nick Murphy’s period supernatural thriller, The Awakening, which stars Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton. An off-putting and creepy new clip has surfaced where Hall recalls being attached by a lion in Africa.
The film world premiered at TIFF (read my review here) and is now open in UK cinemas.
“Haunted by the death of her fiancé, Florence Cathcart is on a mission to expose all séances as exploitative shams. However, when she is called to a boys’ boarding school to investigate a case of the uncanny, she is gradually forced to confront her skepticism in the most terrifying way, shaking her scientific convictions and her sense of self to the very core.”
