Who Knows What to Expect From The Awakening?

Posted on: December 8th, 2016

While it may have the most generic of titles (not to mention one shared with a handful of other films), upcoming supernatural thriller The Awakening has a plot that is anything but humdrum. With war, family tragedy, psychic connections and crime, the film – which recently wrapped filming in Sullivan County, NY – sounds like a real melting pot of tropes and genres.

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series’ Zane Holtz plays Ray Marrow, a soldier who returns home from active duty in Syria when his wife is killed in a car accident. While their 5-year-old son Lawrence survived the crash, he has been left with post-traumatic stress disorder, which begins to manifest itself in strange ways. The boy starts to display a supernatural knowledge of the disappearance of a young woman, leading to Ray becoming the target of a local gangster.

The Awakening is written and directed by Jason Noto (pictured), and comes from Adrian Grenier’s Reckless Productions, in association with NewAley Pictures, who are currently lining up a 2017 release.
