Another (lengthy) clip has arisen from Nick Murphy’s period horror The Awakening, starring Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton. Cohen Media Group, who will release the thriller theatrically on August 17, has just released a whopping 10-minute long clip that spills the opening sequence from the flick.
The opening scene takes the viewers into a seance where Hall’s character debunks a fraud and then sets off to another case that sets the table for the film’s eerie events.
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.“
