Exclusive Clip From The Awakening
Warning: contains scary dollhouse

24 October 2011  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Exclusive

Even if we didn't tell you anything about The Awakening, we're betting that you'll be able to figure quite a lot out by watching this exclusive clip from the film. There's a mysterious child running upstairs in a large and empty-looking house, a distraught-looking woman running after him with her hair all askew, and at the top of the house a truly terrifying dollhouse (Yes, seriously. Who knew dollhouses could be this unnerving?). It is, in other words, a horror!

Set in 1921 in a country recovering from the trauma of World War I, the film sees Rebecca Hall play the wonderfully-named Florence Cathcart, who visits a boarding school to expose what she believes is a hoax story of a ghost child haunting the place. We're guessing, in this case, it's not quite that simple.

 

The film also stars Dominic West and Imelda Staunton, and it's all directed by Nick West. Look out for The Awakening on November 11; appropriately enough, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I.

Why waste the only decent scare in a promo clip??
Having seen this at the LFF I cant believe they've released this video, a moment which turns out to be the ONLY genuine scare in this competent little horror flick, which is sooooooooooooooo heavily influenced by El Orfanato that any scares are redundant to the informed viewer. More
