This review is from: The Awakening [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
What a pleasure it is to watch a film for the first time, and find it far surpasses your expectations. As a fairly skeptical person, I find most ghost stories pretty silly, and most horror pretty predictable. Not so with The Awakening, though. It's not horror for a start; don't expect to be grossed out, if that's what you want. It's also much more than a ghost story; the plot is complex, and about far more than just a haunting. Add to that some superb acting (particularly from Rebecah Hall and Isaac Hempstead Wright), some atmospheric cinematography, and... well, enjoy!
Oh, and I did get goosebumps, for the first time in years...
