Cinema Australia has shared the first photo from the native Awoken, which recently wrapped principal photography.
The bloody image shows Benson Jack Anthony looking suitably creepy as Blake, who suffers from Fatal Familial Insomnia – with Sara West as his sister Karla in the background.
Awoken is a suspense-driven mystery/horror, “Centered around Karla (West), a young medical student who is trying to cure her brother, Blake (Anthony) from a terminal sleep illness called Fatal Familial Insomnia (FFI), where you are unable to sleep until you die. On her quest to treat him, a more sinister reason for his condition is revealed.”
Awoken stars Jack Anthony and West, as well as Erik Thompson, who plays the siblings’ trusted father figure who offers a new way to treat the disease.
