British horror come period drama The Awakening will arrive in UK cinemas 11th November, and the film has just got itself a US distribution deal as well. Nick Murphy’s haunting chiller will be released in the US by Cohen Media Group after premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The spooky film stars Rebecca Hall, Dominic West, Imelda Staunton and Lucy Cohu, and Empire scored an exclusive clip which is a little on the creep side, I might add. Also included here is the official trailer.
Haunted by the death of her fiancé, Florence Cathcart is on a mission to expose all séances as exploitative shams. However, when she is called to a boys’ boarding school to investigate a case of the uncanny, she is gradually forced to confront her skepticism in the most terrifying way, shaking her scientific convictions and her sense of self to the very core.“

(UPDATE) Dread Central scored a second clip today, and here it is for your viewing pleasure. I must say, these two clips have really got my attention on this film now!
