Critic Reviews of "The Awakening"Seattle TimesAugust 30, 2012
Though the story spirals a little out of control in the film's final scenes, "The Awakening" offers the low-key pleasures of an old-fashioned thriller and a lovely central performance.Chicago Sun-TimesAugust 30, 2012
Whatever.USA TodayAugust 23, 2012
The cast is anchored by two wonderful actresses: Imelda Staunton and Rebecca Hall, whose talents are squandered on this lackluster horror drama.Newark Star-LedgerAugust 17, 2012
When these sudden surprises work, as in "A Beautiful Mind" or "The Others," you're too stunned to swallow that next handful of popcorn; when they don't, you're tempted to throw your whole box at the screen.Globe and MailAugust 17, 2012
A dull British import that never lives up to the pretensions of its period setting.New York PostAugust 17, 2012
An enjoyably old-fashioned ghost story in the vein of "The Others" and "The Orphanage."Bust MagazineMarch 08, 2017
If you're in the mood for some serious spooks with solid acting, The Awakening is worth checking out; but I wouldn't go out of my way if you're looking for anything more than that.TheHorrorShowAugust 26, 2015
A concise little old-school British ghost story, and I say there's always room for a few more of those.7M PicturesJune 09, 2013
a ghost story that wants to be more than just a ghost story, but in the process of trying to be a movie that transcends a genre, it insults the genreWe Got This CoveredFebruary 11, 2013
The Awakening glides ghost-like through its story, laying its own elaborate traps along the way.Big HollywoodFebruary 01, 2013
The Awakening is a handsome, well-acted thriller with a script that's never cringe-inducing. So why did it sneak its way onto home video with no fanfare?Salt Lake TribuneAugust 31, 2012
[Rebecca Hall] captures Florence's flinty intelligence and the vulnerability that emerges as she slowly discovers the school's dark secrets.
