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

Awaken the Shadowman: Horrific for the wrong reasons
26 August 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

When a young couple and their newly born child learn that their mother is missing they race back to their home town to assist in the search only to learn that the town holds a dark secret.

Sadly the dark secret is never fully explained and the film is an anti-climatic empty 90 minutes of boredom.

It's not that nothing happens, it's that nothing even remotely interesting happens.

The movie ends on about 50 question marks and that simply isn't acceptable.

The Good:

Jean Smart

The Bad:
