Fresh: There is nothing in the film that will keep you awake at night. Instead, "The Awakening" works much more subtly, with a profound sense of dread and resignation, a death-obsessed movie given life by Hall's performance.

Rotten: A dull British import that never lives up to the pretensions of its period setting.
- Chris Berube, Globe and Mail, Friday, August 17, 2012
Rotten: The cast is anchored by two wonderful actresses: Imelda Staunton and Rebecca Hall, whose talents are squandered on this lackluster horror drama.
- Claudia Puig, USA Today, Thursday, August 23, 2012
Despite the promising beginning and the solid art direction, this conventional ghost story never rises above its clearly derivative narrative - which, among many deficiencies, tries to be clever with a lame (and unnecessary) twist but is only convoluted and obvious.
