Ahead of its limited run in the States this week, some new promos for British horror The Awakening have hit the web. Set in 1921, as England is overwhelmed with grief following World War I, professional hoax debunker and author Florence Cathcart (Rebecca Hall) takes on a case involving an alleged child ghost and a dead student at a boarding school, brought to her attention by a teacher (Dominic West). The recent bunch of clips — including the first 10 minutes of the film — look atmospheric and spooky in a similarly vintage manner to The Woman in Black, which is promising, and Florence looks like a great character for the tremendously appealing Rebecca Hall.
The Awakening — directed by Nick Murphy and starring Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and
Imelda Staunton — opens in the US on August 17. Watch the first 10 minutes of the film below, plus two new clips and the trailer.
