If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I always love a good haunting, don't you? It's one of my favorite subsets of the horror genre and if this first trailer for 'The Awakening' is to be believed, it will be another stellar haunting film that will find favorable purchase in the hearts of horrorphiles. Creepy location, unsettling toys, and a little ghost kid? Commence the hairs on my arm and neck standing on end. The film is already garnering comparisons to 'The Orphanage,' but to me it looks more similar in tone, content, and possibly theme, to Guillermo del Toro's 'The Devil's Backbone.' If you haven't seen 'The Devil's Backbone,' correct this at once and then watch the trailer for 'The Awakening' and tell us what you think.
'The Awakening' hits theaters limited on August 10th
