Very Good, But Terrible Marketing In The UK!
22 July 2011 | by Conor97See all my reviews

Well, first of all, I rented this movie today, thinking it would be a horror as the film was marketed as a horror. I can't believe this film was marketed as a horror in th UK! This is terrible as it's actually a comedy drama! I thought it was a horror as the whole DVD was in the style of a horror film and the summary even made it sound like one, the title was also different (Awaken The Night) I don't know where they got that title from. On the UK DVD cover it has Nikki Reed and DJ Qualls faces above a dark creepy forest, where a woman (supposedly Nikki Reed's character) is running away from a man (supposedly DJ Qualls character) and theirs even splatters of blood on the woman and blood on 2 of the trees. I think the UK marketing for this film is unacceptable because this movie definitely isn't a horror and theirs not even a forest or blood in it.

But, the film was actually very good, although it wasn't anything like I expected it to be. The acting was brilliant, the style was very modern and real, and over all the film was very good. I would probably give the film 6/10 overall but I would give the UK marketing for it no stars as it is just unbelievably stupid.
