Great little paranormal thriller,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Awakening (2011) [DVD] (DVD)
It was a very good nice creepy little thriller/horror and in these days of billion dollar CGI effects is was a nice chance to watch a film that was created with the talent of the writer, the actors and the basic props. Have to say from the outset that I loved the cinematography, the washed out, low key treatment was a master stroke, the only burst of colour was at the main plot turning point near the end. If you want a scare a minute horror or gore, this is not for you. If you want a stunning twisty plotline with a real end twist, again you will probably find this story a little disappointing. However you have an evening to kill and you have a spouse/partner who doesn't like horror/gore but does enjoy a little haunted house tale, then get this. As others have said, it's a great film but there are a few loose ends and the plot lines keep jumping from point to point which keeps you guessing and leaves you a little lost at the end, but still well worth watching.
It's not a stunning film but one of those films you can share with anyone who may not like all out horror but can still enjoy something that puts the "willys up them"!
