Rebecca Hall VS Ghosts in New ‘The Awakening’ Trailer

Based solely on its premise, ‘The Awakening‘ looks like a pretty standard horror film, a tale of Woman Visits Haunted Academy, Haunted Academy Terrifies Woman. Then you notice the cast, which includes tremendous talents like Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton. Then you watch the trailer, which is simply dripping with atmosphere and dread. Yep, it looks like we’ll have to keep an eye on ‘The Awakening.’

Hall stars as one of those ghost hunters who doesn’t actually believe in ghosts, but rather travels around debunking all kinds of fake hauntings. Her journey takes her to one of those creepy British schools where everything is gray and everyone is sad and Dominic West is there but not playing McNulty. Naturally, this creepy place is where Hall learns that yes, ghosts are real and that yes, they’re pretty darn scary, especially when they appear suddenly over your shoulder and such.

‘The Awakening’s slightly generic premise looks like it can be forgiven thanks a great cast, gorgeous cinematography and a story that makes full use of its turn-of-the-century setting. What do you think?
