A disturbing new trailer has dropped for Awoken, and we’re getting serious The School vibes from it.
The new Australian horror/thriller/mystery is directed by Daniel J. Phillips and co-written by Phillips and Alan Grace.
Awoken stars Sara West as a young medical student who is attempting to cure her brother (Benson Jack Anthony) from a terminal sleep illness called Fatal Familial Insomnia, where you are unable to sleep until you die. On her quest to help him, a more sinister reason for his condition is revealed.
Awoken co-stars Erik Thomson, Joe Romeo, Felicia Tassone and Amelia Douglass.
No word on a release yet, but keep an eye on http://www.cinemaaustralia.com.au for updates about the film.
