After being acquired out of last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Nick Murphy’s The Awakening, starring Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton, is now in theaters from Cohen Media Group.
The clip takes viewers all the way upstairs as Hall comes face-to-face with a creepy dollhouse that carries an array of dark secrets.
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.“
