A Taste Of The Supernatural In Trailer For Period Horror ‘The Awakening’

After being acquired out of last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Cohen Media Group will release Nick Murphy’s incredibly weak The Awakening (review), starring Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton, on August 17. This morning the official theatrical trailer went live.

In the film, “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. Haunting and moving in equal measure, The Awakening is a sophisticated psychological/supernatural thriller in the tradition of The Others and The Orphanage, but with its own unique and thrilling twist.

    I couldn’t help but think of “The Others” while watching this trailer… Looks interesting though. Going to have to check this one out 🙂

    I also definitely got the feeling of “The Others.” Plus couldn’t help but think that was a nod to “The Changeling” at the 1:46 mark.

    I love stuff like this though. It felt like this would be the lovechild of “The Others” and “The Orphanage.”

    I’m a sucker for ghost movies, but this one sucks. The story’s utterly predictable and Hall is just awful.
