About the movie-
Newspaper reporter Jacob Harker (Rob Boltin) loses his job, forcing he and his wife, Haley (Gwendolyn Edwards), to move into a small rental house owned by Webster Cain (Michael Monks). In the process of moving in, Jacob discovers a discarded audio recording of 60’s blues singer Carol James (Hannah Hughes). Captivated by the voice on the recording, Jacob conducts an investigation into Carol James’ life and death. Through his pursuit, Jacob becomes haunted by an evil spirit. While the spirit seductively persuades Jacob, drawing him deeper and deeper into its own malicious plot, the spirit attacks and terrorizes Haley, creating both fear and distrust in the Harker’s home. Haley sees her husband turning into someone less recognizable each day.
How can a marriage survive such attack, deception, and evil?
Can the faith of one help restore the condition of another?
This was the first movie I have ever heard of in the Christian movie world that is a suspense movie. I thought it was an interesting story line and thought the movie did a good job of keeping the story moving and interesting. It was fun trying to figure out what exactly the spirit was after through Jacob. I enjoyed the beautiful singing of Hannah Hughes as Carol James and seeing how this obsession of with Carol James does to the Harker's marriage. I hope to see more movies along similar lines as "Awakened". This was a great suspense movie for fans of this genre who are looking for something that will keep you on your toes and guessing, but without the gore and violence of other typical horror movies. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.
