30-Day Horror Movie Challenge: Day 7 – Supernatural Horror Film…

movie poster The Awakening 2011

Tagline: All the children are gone. Except one.

Synopsis: “In 1921, England is overwhelmed by the loss and grief of World War I. Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart visits a boarding school to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she believes unravels as the ‘missing’ begin to show themselves.” source

Invite a skeptic to an allegedly haunted place. Up the ante with the place being a school where children are “frightened to death.” Toss in a clingy, overeager governess; a jealous, possibly violent groundskeeper; and, a decades-old murder. Now you have all the ingredients for a supernatural horror film — one filled to its brim with mystery and melancholy.

(Psst! If an ambiguous ending turns your stomach, you may want to skip this one.)
