5.0 out of 5 stars An ideal evening choice, 24 Jun 2012
This review is from: The Awakening (2011) [DVD] (DVD)
For me this is exactly the type of ghosty flick I enjoy. Nothing full of gore and unnecessary blood with disgusting, messed up faces lunging at the screen as a freak way of adding a scare. I probably sound incredibly dull but I love ghosty films that have the suspense and creepiness throughout the film then ends with a sudden twist that (for me) makes me understand why everything happened in the film and makes me less creeped out by it - because i do want to get to sleep at night.

This film certainly will go on my dvd shelf along with The Others, An American Haunting and The Orphanage as well as other films that didn't need blood and fancy special effects to make the hair on the back of my neck prick up.

Good review, it is a 15 so was never going to be slash and hack. Im glad its not, very good film, like "The Orphanage", suspenseful without going overboard. Good setting, decent cast, decent length and well presented. Like you, i found it very enjoyable.

I completely agree.Too many films have so much gore and torture in them which I hate.But I like to be scared sometimes so I love the jumpy scary films that have a good story too.

i love the bloody torture type horrors, but there is definitely a place for the more languid meditative and creepy ones too. i'm looking forward to watching this.

As they say, if you enjoyed that you might enjoy this -" The Haunting". It's black and white and quite an old film; but without a drop of blood in sight and no bodily violence, it's one of the most effective ghost films ever.

I was looking for the Haunting and found it's name sake with subtitles and I do enjoy dark not gory European films.
You said black and white so is that an American version? Ta.

I totally agree with all that been said.

That's no doubt the 1963 Robert Wise directed film. My favourite horror film.
