Storyline

"Dawning" takes place at a Northern Minnesota lake cabin where a brother and sister visit their father and step-mom. As the first night unfolds with uncomfortable small-talk and tension, tragedy strikes as the beloved family dog is found mortally wounded. Almost immediately a stranger, potentially under the spell of some un-seen "presence", appears in the cabin and tells the family that he has come to save them...but from what? The man's arrival upsets what at best was only a tentative balance and the pretense at civility begins to crumble. Soon, their lack of trust in each other and their inability to cope with any new pressure exposes their weaknesses and what the stranger has started, whatever is waiting in the dark may finish.

Waste of time
10 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

I have been watching movies for a long long time and I'm sorry to say that this is overall the worst movie I have seen. The acting wasn't terrible, the actors who played a brother and sister acted well....the others, so so! The plot was non existent and very drawn out and boring. The music was great! As far as horror scores go, this was good and I think it the only thing that kept me tuned in. The ending did not make any sense, but then again, most of the movie itself didn't. I'm not a professional critic but I am very open minded to different types of movies and if you asked me about this, I would tell not to waste your time!
