Storyline

Estranged for years since a devastating and horrible tragedy back in 1964, siblings Adam and Jake reunite once again when unexpectedly, the former receives an emergency phone call from his brother informing him that their widowed mother Evette has been inexplicably missing for days. Without delay, Adam troubled by the alarming news, returns to his hometown with his wife Beth and baby Emma, only to be awkwardly welcomed with open arms by the pervading members of the local cult-like bereavement group called "Gateways" and their rather cryptic guru leader Lawrence. Undoubtedly, there is more than meets the eye, moreover, as the two brothers search for answers in the secretive neighbourhood, at the same time, the dark presence of a grim and haunting spectre seems to be strongly attracted by infant Emma's innocence. Is there a chance of eluding the malignant otherworldly visitor? Written by Nick Riganas

The Shadowman might be awakened, but you will be snoring from boredom...
13 August 2017 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I was initially lured in by the movie's cover/poster, as it did seem somewhat interesting, and the fact that this was a supernatural horror movie also just jabbed at my interest.

Now, I have to be bluntly honest and say that I didn't get to the end of the movie, nor do I think that I actually made it halfway through. This movie was an ordeal to watch, because it was an unfathomably boring movie, and nothing much of any interest happened. And the lack of anything even remotely worthwhile watching made me give up on the movie. And I have no intention of returning to it and finish watching it.

The characters in the movie were generic and could essentially have been in any other horror movie. They were lacking depth and distinctive qualities and characteristics, which made for a very bland viewing experience. It was not the fault of the actors and actresses, but the writers were to blame here. The acting was adequate, but the talents were definitely struggling with the limitations imposed on them by the script and storyline.

As for special effects, well I saw very little, and what I did see didn't really impress me. And this was a supernatural horror movie, yet I managed to see only very little in the supernatural department, which was also not working in favor of the movie.

There is nothing recommendable about "Awaken the Shadowman", and thus I cannot come up with a reason for why you should actually take the time and effort or throw money after this movie, because it was just not entertaining at all.
