The Awakening

The Awakening

Directed by Nick Murphy

In 1921 London, Florence Cathcart has devoted her career to exposing the supernatural as nothing but a hoax. When she's approached to investigate the recent death of a boy at a boarding school, students report sightings of the young child's ghost. Initially, the mystery surrounding the ghost appears nothing more than a schoolboy prank, but as Florence continues to investigate, she begins to believe that her reliance on science may not be enough to explain the strange phenomenon going on around her.

A hoax exposer discovers a terrifying truth at a boarding school.

Cast: Rebecca Hall, Dominic West, Imelda Staunton

Great story. We thoroughly enjoyed. Good pacing. Creepy twisted mystery, not horrific just what we wanted last night.

One of the best ghost story movies out there! Works in the post-WWI trauma of many survivors, combined with the classic haunted school ghost story tropes. Glad to see it on Shudder.
