I could have seen this at last year's Toronto Film Festival, but scheduling difficulties made it impossible, so it appears once August 17 rolls around I'll finally be able to see for myself if the comparisons to The Others and The Orphange are apt when it comes to the new horror-thriller The Awakening.
Today a second trailer for the film arrives, which stars Rebecca Hall as Florence Cathcart, a woman on a mission to expose all seances 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.
Co-starring alongside Hall are Dominic West and Imelda Staunton in a film directed by Nick Murphy. Check out the latest trailer below and see what you think.
