All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Awakening (2012)

Starring: Rebecca Hall, Dominic West, Imelda Staunton
Director: Nick Murphy

During the early 1920's in England, a woman becomes famous for exposing ghost hoaxes. She is hired by a boarding school to find out if the school is haunted.

My Take:
A nice movie with a lot of layers, most of which you probably wont see coming. Rebecca Hall is fantastic as the grief stricken exposer who wants to find a sign of the afterlife to help ease her own pain. Actually, the entire cast is excellent. And there is more than few eerie moments.

Rating: So Good
