    A fairly creepy atmosphere during parts, and a few good jumps. Although, the ending was a bit predictable.

    Florence Cathcart was an interesting character to watch, and I adored her from the very beginning.

    Well acted by all, I think.

    I went in expecting it to be fairly poor, but I found it quite enjoyable.

    Great leads, nicely shot, good solid spookyness film. Even if the end does start to remind of 'The Others' a little. Very good. 5 years 11 months ago

    The Awakening stars Rebecca Hall as a ghost breaker in the 1920s, invited to a boys' school to investigate a ghost sighting that may have resulted in the death of a student. That ghost breaking stuff is really great, and I would gladly have followed Hall's character into a franchise had the film been built for that. But when a real ghost is made manifest, it's almost disappointing. I do respect the film melding the concept of real ghosts and those traumas that haunt us just as well as ghosts, and though I'm not an easy mark, like, AT ALL, for horror movie thrills, I did feel a chill going down my spine a number of times just thanks to the creepy atmosphere and the way Hall draws you into her emotional reality. Despite narrowing my eyes at the third act twist, it all paid off quite satisfactorily. 2 weeks 3 days ago
