    Review: Rebecca Hall Chiller 'The Awakening' Is Flawed, But Also Kind Of A Blast

    All too often, the horror genre is at the less respectable end of the critical spectrum, with cheap, gory exploitation fare designed to bring in hordes of teenagers on opening weekend, and not do much beyond that.
