The world could always use a good ghost story, and The Awakening looks like a solid horror thriller. I love the horror movie genre, and I think this one is going to be worth checking out! The story is set in the 1920s and follows a ghost hunter asked to investigate a haunted boarding school, and thanks to the wonders of the internet you can now watch the first 10-minutes of the film right now!
Here's the synopsis for the film:
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 fiancé, 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 horror movie stars Rebecca Hall, Dominic West, and Imelda Staunton. It's set to haunt theaters on August 17th. Are you excited about this one?
