The Awakening

Short and Simple Review by WubsTheFadger The story begins with a bang but grinds to a halt. The middle part of the film is very slow and labored. The ending is great. The realizations and the twists are what make the film very good. The pacing is very slow but it builds up towards the end. The pacing is the worst part about the film. The runtime is also overlong. The acting is good. Rebecca Hall, Dominic West, and Isaac Hempstead Wright all do a great job. Pro: Great beginning and ending, good acting, and seeing Rebecca Hall naked is a plus Cons: Very slow pacing, the middle part of the film is extremely slow, and an overlong runtime Overall Rating: 7.0

Thoroughly enjoyable ghost story

I have just watched this film and, after many trials, I feel I have found a decent ghost story with a satisfying denouement - in among all the pap out there at the moment. Bucking the trend (a la the dreadful re-working of Robert Wise's The Haunting) special effects are kept to a minimum, allowing the characters - especially the exquisite Rebecca Hall - to shine through. A hint of 'The Turn of the Screw' at times, but that is no bad thing.

the worst horror movie I've ever seen

This film isn't scary or suspenseful or even entertaining. It's not bad enough to be good, it's just plain bad. The twist at the end makes absolutely no sense and is clearly imitating a Shyamalan-type plot twist, with about as much success as his worst efforts. Don't be fooled by people who compare this to psychological thrillers--there's nothing thrilling about this movie, it's a snoozefest. Don't waste your time with this.
