Completely taken in,
This review is from: The Awakening (2011) [DVD] (DVD)
I am with you Laura C. The classy, clever ghost story wins over senseless gore every time and this one completely fooled me as I didnt see the either of the double twists coming at the end. I am hard pressed to think of any film with Imelda Staunton in it that isn't a good movie, so I should have known it would be a cracker. One worth seeing again too for the pointers to the truth you missed the first time around.
There is another classic ghost story that resembles this one, but to mention it would give the game away so like Laura C I won't name that one - but she's right; this is a very good chilling yarn.

I'm always on the lookout for well acted ghost stories, so if you know of other (albeit similar) movies I, and I'm sure others, would love to know what they are.

Dr. Trevor G. Stammers says:
You may already be aware of The Others starring Nicole Kidman? That is very well done I think.
The stage play "Ghost Stories" is also very good if you live near enough to London to see it. The twist in that is positively visceral - see my review on Trip Advisor for more on that
