4.0 out of 5 stars Spooky, 18 Mar. 2012
This review is from: The Awakening (2011) [DVD] (DVD)
I saw this film last night after reading about it and deciding it was something that would generally appeal to my tastes in 'horror' movies. (Horror is probably a slight overstatement, maybe thriller is more like it, but either way it certainly had me jumping out of my skin at more than one point!) Dark, British, period thriller set in a boys boarding school with ghostly activity. Great performances by all of the cast, with a very interesting twist in the tale as the story unfolded near to the end. Unexpected but very thought provoking. Quite disturbing in places. Some fantastic imagery and scary moments if you like that typical old school child-ghost type or horror (which I do, think "The Others" and "The Sixth Sense"!). A spooky dolls house, a terrifying disfigured child ghost and haunting singing rabbit..... say no more! I would love to watch this again and found myself thinking about it a lot the following day..will probably buy the DVD as its one I would watch again happily. Recommended. Only given 4 stars due to a few question marks over plotline which aren't quite believable.
