A new trailer has been released for the great looking horror thriller The Awakening. The story is set in the 1920s and follows a ghost hunter asked to investigate a haunted boarding school. The movie stars Rebecca Hall, Dominic West, and Imelda Staunton. The Awakening looks like a fantastic ghost story. I love the setting and feel of it, and I'm looking forward to seeing it.
Here's the Synopsis:
Set in London in 1921, Florence Cathcart (REBECCA HALL), author of the popular book “Seeing Through Ghosts,” has devoted her career to exposing claims of the supernatural as nothing but hoaxes. Haunted by the recent death of her fiance, she is approached by Robert Mallory (DOMINIC WEST) to investigate the recent death of a student at the all-boys boarding school where he teaches. When students at the school report sightings of the young boy’s ghost, she decides to take on the case. Initially, the mystery surrounding the ghost appears nothing more than a schoolboy prank, but as Florence continues to investigate events at the school, she begins to believe that her reliance on science may not be enough to explain the strange phenomenon going on around her.
The film is set to haunt theaters on August 17th. Watch the trailer, and let us know if you think it looks like horror movie you'd like to see.
